The Majestic - San Diego in SL (07.12.09)
Once again, I had to have a little SL live performance hiatus. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I got an acute case of tendinitis in my left hand (the fretting hand for us right-handed guitar players), and couldn't touch my guitar for a week. The next show I had was today at The Majestic at San Diego in SL, so I let the hand rest for most of the last two weeks. Needless to say, I was just dying to play the entire time, and it couldn't have been a better place to return to rocking SL. The Majestic is a somewhat fancy place, so I put together a mostly mellow Sunday afternoon theme of music.
Like any comeback special (even after only a two-week break), I wanted the show to have some elements of excitement, so I did a couple of covers I'd never done before, and had loads of fun with both. We had a small but happy crowd there, and considering the number of live shows that go on in SL on a weekend afternoon, I was happy with anyone who hung out at my little gig. It was really a blast, and I'm also happy to say that my evil tendinitis hand didn't act up at all during the show. So far, so good. And... I'm glad to be back. I really miss my silly virtual shows when I'm not able to do them!
