As a guitarist was in the middle of their performance on stage, a string broke.
Since the song was already halfway done, they decided to just keep on playing until the end without that string.
Before the next song, the guitarist discovered that they did not pack any replacements in their case; so they decided to ask the other band members if they had any.
To the guitarist’s and indeed everyone’s surprise, not a single musician had any strings.
With only a few minutes before they went on again, a decision had to be made, but there was really only one option.
On stage and playing a song with five strings…
...instead of getting frustrated…
...the guitarist took this as an opportunity to work around the disadvantage instead of being affected by it.
All it took was a few key changes to give a great performance.
