can you tell me the kinda places you can do that? it would be like a day job or late afternoon job..not like a full blown show, since i would need at least another band member for that..

yes, i'm sure if you approached them (NICELY) and (NICELY) asked if they wanted a musician to play, they would consider it, but then again they might just reject you



ahh ok thanks

one more question

i only have an electric guitar (i dont shred i play blues like material)

the places ive seen that have musicians play only play acoustics...would it be a problem for me to not have an acoustic?

It might work out with an electric guitar instead of an acoustic, but you've got to sing or else they will reject you

theres a little coffee shop on the corner of the main street in out town that always has a guy playing music for them

I've always wondered if they'd let me sit and play my blues there for tips...

It'd be like getting payed to practice, how awesome would that be...

^ Then become a lyricist, add words to your tunes, it isn't hard to do.
Or every pissed and drunken goon will make fun out of you.
