You won't be saying that when you get mugged, when you're clothes are buggered and you're freezing your tits off. buskers really don't earn that much, even in manchester

or its a terrible idea when you think about it. you can't play when it rains, you make shit all money, and you get ridiculed by everyone. and rightly so. why not just get a job somewhere and cut out the shit

alright: my dad's buying me a car, and i'm already saving.
your right about the 200 dollar bit, but if i don't make that much in a day, i'm happy as long as i can eat.
i won't need to pay for cleaning, i'll sneak into caravan parks and take showers there or swim in the ocean, but that propably won't do me much good at all.
i've worked before, i just want a life where i can coast along and take everything as it comes, even if it means i die when i'm 25.

You assume you're going to get $200 a day or whatever, which you definately will not.
#18
you're better off learning a trade after school. at least you'll have some sort of skill.

what kinda job do you think you can find with no home (no shower?) and a grade 10 education

You know you need a license to busk? Plus I know a shit load of buskers and most of them get on a good day about £50, what are you going to do about food?

why is everybody saying "what are you going to do about food?"? it's simple: buy it with the money i earn, even if it means spending all of it.
#23
worst. idea. ever. like, honestly. you expect to make a living that way? there are so many better reasons. like, why not study music? stay there, study, and busk if you really wanted. get in a cover band, now thats where the money is. but honestly busk? just coz u dont have to work? that just sounds like a slack cop out to me kid. but you wanted honesty and i just gave it. if you really want to play music for a living, then start living it. go to a comunity college and study, get in a cover band. anything but busking. your not john buttler.

enjoy your life. mcdonald's always exists in america. they pay minimum wage. it's not all that bad. at least you can eat and be decently clean, and probably own some sort of place. not necessarily nice though.

You're from adelaide? then study music at TAFE then. the course is like, 800 dollars. and you can make so many connections there. I just graduated from there and am going to the elder hall conservatorium next year (hoperfully ), do that, you can still busk or whatever. and like the poster above me. i live in adelaide, have you been to rundle mall? no one cares about buskers, honestly, you will be lucky to make 50 a day, if you are talented

That's ****ing dumb
What's so bad with staying until at least the end of your education and getting some sort of qualifications to fall back upon?
If anyone thinks people will take a homeless tenth-grade busker seriously is a ****ing idiot
Move to the UK, stay on after full time education and leech off EMA, free £30 a week, busk as a hobby but get a ****ing job, at least that's reliable income

live it? by sitting in a dull room all day learning to read black dots? no, i think i'll be living it quite nicely with my guitar, car and me. but guys, if it doesn't work out, i'll write up a resume to hungry jacks or something to earn dough. just enough to live on. i don't want to make a fortune and spend it on crap i'd buy just because i can.

Ok, you are a complete idiot. hungry jacks? what the hell man? unless you are an excellent troll, you are a complete idiot. You can have your great life. but honestly. being a musician making 200 dollars a day? you are getting ripped off. if you study, its not all about bacl dots you moron. its about the people you meet and the connections you make. are you that thick that you think busking and living in a car is a good idea? no one will take you seriously, a 16 year old kid making a "living" playing "guitar", you may think its awesome because you dont have to work, but god damn, you have no idea how the real world works. but if u still want to, i will see you in rundle with torn jeans lookin skinny and dirty

now, you see, if i were to start a band and we were struggling, people on here would be saying "keep at it". but it appears that it's not the case for one person. still, i asked for opinions, and opinions i got. i will consider this tafe course.
