1 : Do it again, so the punters think you intended that note.
2 : Just forget about it, and get on with it.

I often do the bum note twice, it can sound really cool [:)]

Play the bum note three times and you are playing jazz [:D]

Hi All,
This is my first post on these forums due to me now being the proud owner of a "Nitefly Mojo Flame" this by the way is my first Parker but jeez what a beautiful piece of kit...almost feels like I was born with it on my body !!.

Welcome to the forum, glad to have you here.  I am glad to hear you are happy with the Nitefly but don't leave it at home when you gig, it will get lonely.  Parkers are amazing guitars and they are for playing.  Pop it away in its case in between sets if you are really worried about it.

This is a great thread everyone! The only thing I feel that I can add is always bring things you think you'll never need:

spare kick drum pedal (saved a show once with that)
spare mic stands. the venue might not always have enough, correct, etc
first aid kit. the venue again should have one. do they always? no.

just about everything else has been covered, just remember spares of the small things, snare head, snare (if your drummer has it), picks, strings, guitar straps, cables, etc.

And remember to stay hydrated! You are sweating your a** off up there, so make certain you keep up!
