necessity = mother of all inventions

So there I was last Friday.....


I play solo acoutic (lapslide, regular and vox) and had a gig. It was a larger venue with a sold out crowd (the Brewery in Raleigh, NC). I could not find my mini stand I use as a stompbox. I was late and in a big hurry.

As I was walking out my kitchen, my large wooden cutting board caught my eye. It's about 30 pounds and 100% wood. Here's an idea....tape an SM57 to the corner and stomp on the board....

...best idea ever. I highly recommend trying it at least once for you solo troubadors. I now have a killer stompboard and an even better surface for cutting veggies...onlove...LB
