    Just for fun

    This is my solo guitar list from last Halloween. Played for 2 hours. Lots of improv as you can see. I played all summer so was fairly handy at it. Might have a posh gig next week so just looked at the repertoire again. One word...rusty.

    Great idea! Here’s a couple. Both are from solo sets, about 40mn for each. The one with the pedal board is the graphic from a flyer. It lists the composers only. As I recall, the tunes were as follows:

    Tired of Waiting for You (Davies)
    Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most (Wolf)
    Freddie Freeloader / Blue Monk (Miles / Monk)
    Watermelon Man (Hancock)
    Lucy in the Sky / In My Life (Lennon & McCartney)

    The second list was from a set using three guitars, an archtop for jazz chord melodies, a flattop for acoustic Zeppelin, and a Tele for the Beatles medley. There’s also notes for the pedal settings.

    But wow, you did a two hour set with lots of variety. Impressive!

    I use a tablet on gigs, so my lists are electronic. At my trio's weekly Thursday night show, we back a different vocalist every week - so I write an iReal chart set for the bassist and drummer and print that as a pdf with the list plus all the tunes (in case of a device failure):

    After the vocal hour, we do a set. For that, I leave scrap paper in my pocket and on my bedside table all week so I can write down tunes I want to do when I think of them. We discuss the list before our trio set and pick tunes that grab us. When a page gets full, I transcribe it to a Word document - so there's a sheaf of tune lists in my gig bag pocket. On solo dates, I just use the scribbled idea lists. These are the 3 I've been filling up for about a month:

    My current set list is Autumn Leaves played 7-8 times at subtly varied speeds wherein the latter renditions are typically better than the first ones. My cats seem to enjoy it. Literal cats - not jazzy jazz hep cats.

    It's heartening to see that some of us here know more than two songs. And in funny keys too.

    I think I play a little bit more tunes now, I mean comping (10 or 20 more).
    That list is the real one : I play the head (no real book, no tablet).
