    If you were in an empty stadium all by yourself with a complete sound system on full blast, standing on-stage, what would be the first lick/riff/music you'd play if you only had a minute to play to take advantage of the hugeness of the situation?
    I think right now, I'd play the opening to Limelight (Rush).

    I'd just hit an open A chord and wait for the awesome feedback. I mean let's be real, the only thing better than that is an orgasm.

    A stadium? The Star-Spangled Banner, of course..

    ..with my teeth.

    Then play the first three chords to Eruption, put the guitar down, turn off the amp, walk to mid field, lay in a reclining lawn chair, and listen to Pink Floyd in Quadraphonic.

    It'd be a string of AC/DC riffs.

    I would play the opening riff to my song
    Shadows on the moon.
    With my cherry burst LP.
    Thanks

    I did this a couple times almost 39 years ago, when stationed at Ft. Gordon Ga. After the base clubs closed, I lugged a semi-hollow POS guitar, and a heavy ampeg tube combo, to the dugout of the baseball field. It had electric. I may have used some pedal of sorts, and 2 long cords to get me closer to the pitcher mound. I turned it up wide open, and played some AC/DC or whatever else I remembered at the time. I was in better shape then.

    If I were in a great big stadium all by myself I would crank that effing stack and improvise something set to the tempo of the huge echo repeats.. .

    Bamp (bamp) ((bamp))
