As I was going through my large Altieri gig bag, I was amazed at how much I actually had in there. I’m trying to slim down what I carry around all the time, and it’s crazy how much I think I need! I’ve listed the top 5 items I can’t seem to live without in my gig bag (excluding the instrument and music).
1. Wire Stand
2. Instrument Stand
3. Pencils (or erasable crayons)
4. Ear Plugs
There are so many other things I like to carry around too, such as pins or paperclips (to hold down fly-away music) or a stand light for those dark rehearsals. I also didn’t list the metronome since I can use my phone for that, if needed. Yay technology! 😀
What top 5 items can’t you live without?
