Cruise Ship Gigs
Posted: Sun May 15, 2011 12:50 pm
I am a cruise ship musician and so am constantly faced with the challenge of trying to pack my entire life into a single suitcase under 50lbs and a backpack, and living off that for 6 months at a time. I have always had to bring a real book with me to every ship as well as a host of method books and texts (lots of free time so I like to keep myself busy). Before I was traveling with 15lbs o books that took up space equivalent to 2 shoe boxes... now all of that has been reduced to just my iPad. iGigBook's ability to index the .pdf's floating around has been incredibly invaluable for me as often times people decide to call tunes not in the book I have brought with me... I just search and bam I'm ready to play.
