Shine a Light on Me” Tips for the Pro Guitarist pt.5

Stages are often dark places. It can be very difficult to see things while setting up, not to mention when you lose something. Has a slide ever rolled off your amp and it feels like you’re on the floor for 10 minutes searching? How about a pickup selector switch fly’s off into the stage abyss? These are just a few things that can go wrong on a gig.

The darker the room the more difficult it is to respond. A simple purchase of a small flashlight can simplify these situations when they occur. You can purchase one pretty cheap. Check out this keychain light: This mini flashlight is also great. You would be surprised how often you could use one on a gig. You can’t expect the sound man will have one.

Next time a patch cable is acting weird and you need to check the inputs and outputs on a pedal you won’t have to guess in darkness.
