Re: Live Gig Rig Logistics

There are pretty good rules to live by.  I can get insane sometimes with
my set-up as well, but I have an extra rule that applies for my solo

Don't bring more than you can carry in one trip.

This isn't always possible, but it's a pretty good goal.  For my solo
shows, I don't bring out the major wattage usually because I don't have to
compete with everyone else on stage.  So between instrument case, combo
amp and backpack I can usually do the whole thing in one trip which makes
me feel a lot safer when I can't park near the gig and don't have anyone
to watch the car while I unload.
