I am thinking of going on a busking "tour" this summer. I was wondering if anyone has advice on planing and actually doing it. Should I stay in cheap motels and take trains and buses everywhere? Also any song advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Bring a tent and a sleeping bag and stay in that, that way you can actually make money, instead of spending it on hotels

I didn't think of that. I'm not really doing for money, just for the fun of playing music to people and having them listen.

Hitchhiking is a cheaper option, unless you're going to be somewhere where there's a good cheap train/bus system. Essentially, if you're in North America, you should hitch. Just make sure you know where your towel is.

You could also try something like couchsurfing.com as far as accommodations go. You can camp too, but that's not always easy to do in the city.

Thats what I was worried about. I'll check out the couchsurfing. Thanks for the advice.

Wow that site amazes me. How risky is letting people sleep in your house?

couchsurfing is a great website. I've used it many times when my girlfriend and I travel around. It's extremely safe, as you can search for verified safe members, or just regular members. You can always look at a members ratings, comments, etc. It's a great alternative to sleeping in a tent or a motel, and some people are extremely nice. When I went to Chicago I used couchsurfing, and the dude was so nice he let me and my girlfriend have a set of keys to his house to come and go when we want.

He's a great guy

If you're busking, it totally ruins the illusion that people should give you money if you stay in 5 star hotels all the time.

I was thinking of staying in something like this


Far from 5 star. But I think I'll just use the couchsurfing.
