Everyone bring an instrument to YAPC, we'll do a jam. I'm bringing my guitar; I think jjohn might bring his, and gnat might bring a stringed instrument of some kind.

  • I have my train tickets and hotel reservations. Everything is going according to plan...
  • I would bring my guitar, except that I really don't want to check it in, and you can't carry those things on. Same deal with the drumset :).

    "Cake or Death!" .... "Cake please"
    • I check my guitar on the plane; though, I have a nice hard case for it. Never had a problem with it.
      • Maybe I'll look into getting a better case for mine. I don't trust the case I've got right now...

        "Cake or Death!" .... "Cake please"
      • That's what Martin Carthy used to say.
        • Is it worth it to explain the reference to me? :-)
          • Carthy is a highly respected folk musician of long standing (he came up with the chord sequence that Paul Simon used for Scarboro Fair) and was the possessor of a very lovely and much played Martin guitar that, so the story goes, got lunched by an airport baggage handling system. Yes, it was in a flight case.
            • Mine is a Martin, but it is eminently replacable; if the airline screws up that badly, they will just buy me a new one. If mine were irreplacable, I wouldn't risk it, probably.
              • It's a tough call. When you're a professional musician you have to travel with your instruments. And when you're a folk musician you really can't afford to book a seat for the guitar.
