Making use of the headstock.....

Now if you're like Sal and doing three or four sets at a gig this might not be too practical (though the list could be changed between sets)........but I find this is perfect for having 20+ tunes at the ready for the open mic stages. Might only get to do four or five songs but I have a good working list to choose from. If I did everything on open strings such a list would not be necessary, but as you can see, I'm all over the fingerboard with a capo and early on this was how to remember which fret for which song. The more I do this though the less I need the list for capo placement.......pretty much remember that part now.....

 

Handy place to keep a set list.......thought some might could make use of the idea.......

Okay: A list of songs you plan to play or play from . . . for us folks of apparently less memory capacity.

 

I just stick a post-it on the bass side shoulder. Fortunately I can read my own writing. B) . Pretty easy to see without moving the guitar around and I haven't had the finish problems I used to have with tape (many years ago).

Nothing to do with memory. We pretty much knew what songs we were going to play just not what exact order they would be played in. I cannot, however, recall a gig we did not start out with Carl Perkin's "Boppin' the Blues" and end with Rosemary Clooney's "This Old House."
