First Rehearsal

After Ferrara it was today the first day to take out the guitar and to play along. Although there was a week with no guitar-contact I can feel the "tank-skin" on my fingertips. It was kind of strange to play alone, but on the other side it was fine to play guitar for myself and find new tones and melodies.

Last Gig

The last day brought the best place we ever had. A little road-crossing in the old town, via San Remo / inizio via delle Volte. Almost all visitors had to pass our location. We thought our amplifier was to big for the place, but it was ok. All men heared us, although there were loud groups in the neighbourhood. We sold almost all of our CDs and the people spent a lot of money. Unfortunately a thunderstorm caused us to change the location to an arch 20 meters away. There we gave a familiar last gig for those who had no choice. They had to listen to us. Finaly we had a beer there, transported the instruments to the hotel and took a last sit-in at the Tiffanys. Senza arraculi. A fast packing, 4:30 h driving and Innsbruck was arrived. All in all a fine week with planning of the future of the Trio Infernal . Let's see what the next year will bring.

Piazza Trento Trieste

The waiting was it worth. Our place for yesterday for afternoon and evening was in front of MELbookstore on one end of the great place. And moreover: our neighbours were all playing or acting at normal noise. Spanish girls, Mark Gillespie, and Mediterranean singers, which only amplified the voice. The people came and stopped and listened. Most times young families or rusta-haired hippies. Strange. A mid-aged lady bough a CD. But those who stopped listened a long time. One Hippie group stayed the whole session. I found a method to play although I have a bubble on a righthand-finger(!) All in all it was a good session and we all had fun playing. 'hau.

First gig

After waiting for 2 days we finally had good luck. Marcella had a really fine place for us: in the Rotondo Foscini near the castle. We set up our instruments and startet playing from 6 p.m. til 7.30 p.m. There where a lot of people stoping, listening, some where lying in front of us. Everything went fine. We earned some money, not much. But for us it was a practice session to test our playing in reality. Harping was fine, singing was fine, we were happy. After a short break for lunch we came back to the Rotondo and found a brasilian invited group in front of us with amplifiers of about 300W. We even couldn't hear ourselfs. Some of the staff tried to give us another place, but we were frustrated, packed our instruments to the hotel and ended up at Tiffanys. The last beer was payed by the house. And Rebecca was sorry for the complication and said, that today we will get a better place. And Marcella heared of it and was sorry. They all know us. 'alve.

Time in Ferrara

Yesterday another day went by with the sentence: "Sorry, it is impossibile for you to play today". Well, we went arround and listened various artists. We decided to have a good dinner and had one. But I think it was the fifth restaurant, where we finaly found a place. While walking after the dinner through the town I took a Phonography from the town. So you can listen to the sound of buskers festival if you want. The bar, our bar, was filled, so we closed the day at the piazza municipale. The serving girl there is from Berlin and doesn't understand "Heuer" in the meaning of "Dieses Jahr". Strange.

Arrived in Ferrara, fine to see old places again. And it is funny to talk about places where we have been last year. The wheater is fine, 25 degrees, lightly scattered sky. Gregoa blogs via sms. Yesterday we slept until midday, and then from 6 to 9 p.m. Marcella is here again. We stood in the queue and waited for almost an hour, only to hear that we cannot register yesterday and we cannot play. Hmm. Maybe today. New this year: much more drums and still 3 other harps but no fingerpicking guitarists. But we still have found favourite bars for breakfast, for having a snack and for aftersitting. And I have a new thing: a guitarholder that is looking forward for working for me. Well

WCG-1 V1.0

Here he is, the long expected amplifier:
WCG-1 (WeliChrisuGregor 1.Versuch). It's ok as amplifier for a drum-computer or a MiniDisk-player. But he still makes troubles with my guitar. It sounds like "scratching" when playing the deep notes. But as the name says: 1. trial. Maybe on our next concert you will enjoy the sound :-)
