It was nice to have our newest Acoustic Guitar player (Armand Heyns) play Mandolin for several of the songs. Thanks to my Line 6 Variax guitar and PODxt Live to be able to switch to acoustic when the mandolin was up to bat. I learned yesterday that the click/met track should NOT have any slow-ups/ritards at the end of the songs so that the Main Auditorium (MA) and Lower Auditorium (LA) bands can simply end them un-synchronized...then start the next song by itself. It was also nice in the Main Auditorium (MA) to have the Blasi trio lead on vocals so I could lead the band and enjoy the Electric Guitar role without leading. One of the things I dislike about the whole synchronized Main Auditorium (MA) and Lower Auditorium (LA) is the fact that I don't really know how things are going downstairs. I'm relying on secondhand information. Thankfully, we have capable musicians in both places - so I'm not worried too much about it.
