• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

This Saturday need a Player - old LPs too

If you are in the detroit area, and would like a one hour "gig",
please contact me. To make this "on subject", you can play
one of my vintage Les Pauls for the gig too, if you want.

2pm Saturday July 12, northville michigan.
gig is for 90 minutes.
pay: not much if anything, but free barb-b-q and use
of any vintage LP you want (53 to 60, standards, specials, juniors).
or heck vintage teles or strats if you prefer.
I can provide the amp too (vintage fender tweed champ
or deluxe).

You ARE the band. you have complete control of
what is played. basically we are doing a "letterman"
type show, and you're Paul. you'll be doing all the
show intros and extros, and intros and extros for
breaks. (that is, you won't be playing the entire time.)
no you don't need to shave your head for this. and it's just
audio recorded, so a shaved head isn't gonna help anyway.
You will also get a "showcase" where you play a full song
or two. Just you though, no backing band.

Originally Guitar Tom was supposed to do this gig,
but he has evaporated and i can't get ahold of him.

example of what you could pick to play (trying to keep this on topic):

Yes it's a live internet radio show NOT about guitars. Brighton is about 15 miles away. just need a guitar guy. email me ASAP. it's *tomorrow* (saturday). probably need to be here by 1:30pm, show starts at 2pm, over by 3 or 3:30. You'll be playing guitar for intros and at breaks (just you, no other musicians). Play whatever you want, but personally i would prefer ROCKIN licks and tunes. hehehe. you can use any of my guitars or amps, or bring your own gear (low power though, tweed champ is plenty.) basically i'll point to you, you start playing. will have some 'breaks' where you need to noodle for a couple minutes to showcase your playing as a break from the 'tech' stuff we're doing on the show.

afterwards we're having a barb-b-q party and you can stay and eat and play all the pinball you want. Over 100 games set up for free play, including pinball from 1950s to present, older arcade games (1950s-1970s), slot machines (house money only, don't use you're own dough!). No video games though other than a pair of linked sit-down driving simulators (Rush the Rock). Free beer and drink of course too.

DAMMIT! I want to do this sooo bad. Sounds like a lot of fun, just wish it wasn't so short notice!
I gotta be in Keego Harbor tomorrow at 11 am to get my 1974X back from amp tech Dean Zink, then after that on to Dearborn Heights to a function at my aunt's house, then after that on to Howell for a jam at 5 pm.

Wookie...DO IT!!!!!:dude:

cfh...I really wish I could help you out, not to mention I'd certainly enjoy a afternoon of playing some fine old wood, even if it wasn't mine, lol. And the free beer doesn't help with me. I don't drink anymore, lol.
