Playing Multiple CBGs Design Challenge...

Well, it was going to happen eventually... The more I write and play, the more guitars I would want to include in the show. The problem that I have now is the "dead air" between songs feels like forever.

Since I don't have a guitar tech to run one over to me mid-show like the big dogs have, what can I do on the cheap to make that in-between guitar time really short, or mildly entertaining.

I've had some crazy ideas of duct-taping all my guitars together on a hula hoop, or on a gatling gun, to spin them around. Seem impractical, heavy, and a little silly (could be entertaining?) to wield such a thing. If you've got any wild ideas, post 'em.

Thanks!

   Glue disc piezos to the bottom of your shoes, with an on switch attached to a belt loop.

   When you go to change instruments, switch the piezos on, and STOMP!!!

Remember, you DID say "any wild ideas."
