Most embarrassing thing happened in my musical carreer. While I was performing, my guitar no longer had no sound. I just had put in a new battery so that couldn't be the problem. It was also not the cable. Wel, l then I changed again the battery, but no, still no sound....A lot of stress of course, but fortunately I could borrow the guitar from Martijn van Spankeren.
Next day I brought my guitar to music shop to let the instrument be fixed.
And they called me this afternoon ....
"Annette, I do not know how to tell you ..." somebody said.
"Oh no.... there goes my very special expensive and beautiful Taylor," I thought and I needed to sit down, already in shock..
"I spent a lot of time with your guitar, took everything out to fix it .."
Oh my god, and I already wondered how many time it should take to save for a new guitar.
"... but I could not find anything ..", the voice said.
"Oh,that is strange," I said, having in mind where i was gonna get the money to buy a new one...
"But ..", he continued ".. I found out what it is ..
You had put your battery in your guitar in the WRONG WAY. "
Well.. shit happens. but you don't know how happy I was that I only put this stupid battery upside down and now I got my guitar back! And I will play with my lovely bassplayer next Friday in a nice pub, we will play for more then an hour, own songs and hope to see you there watching and listening how we start the weekend! See you!
