As I look back at Gordy's use of the term and your review, I see better where it is coming from. I was being more defensives (sorry about that), against the whining, I used to get from previous band members, who need to do their thing, no matter what the audience wanted. Quite often, when I do a Villages Show/Benefit, with the Countryman wireless mic's, along your cheek, people will ask afterwards if I was lip syncing, since they could not see the mic. I learned that it was really a...

Miss the old forum layout?

If you miss the list of forums as you saw them on the old platform, you can get something close to that here. This will give you a list of all the forums. It is in the same order as the old forum. There is more information so you have to scroll down a bit to see everything. An interesting difference is that you can change the order of the forum list based on the most recent activity. This will give you an interesting perspective about what people are talking about here. Here's another way to...

Why do you play music? -= and =- Why do you perform? I play music because it centers me. If stressed or bothered it's almost like a drug that helps me escape or cope. It brings happiness and purpose to my life. Why I perform also involves those reasons but it also allows me to share my talent with the love of my life ( she is the singer in my group and it is a passion we share together) and with all the people that enjoy live music and follow us because of our work. And getting paid for it...

I'd say for the money. But that would be a lie. Let's face it, if I didn't TRULY love what I do, I wouldn't be doing it in the first place. I've been a mobile DJ since 1984 when I was an overly excited teenager who was amazed by the appearance of spinning turntables, blinking lights, and cool looking knobs. As a 50 year old, I approach every gig with the same enthusiasm today that I felt back then.

I think this song from the New Radicals, "You Get What You Give" says it best! "But when the night is falling You cannot find the light You feel your dreams are dying Hold tight You've got the music in you Don't let go You've got the music in you One dance left This world is gonna pull through Don't give up You've got a reason to live Can't forget We only get what we give"

Good question, @ST ... because I love to perform and share music ... and for fun ... I'm pretty new to performing in front of people and I'm loving it.

Love to play for the challenge of learning new material and improving my skills. Playing is good mental stimulation which is important esp for those of us 65+. Love to perform because I can do it well despite being 65. Seem to learn something during every performance and reading/engaging the crowd just keeps getting easier. It's extremely exciting to see 20-40 year olds (as well as baby boomers) respond to a bunch of "old" musicians having a great time performing rock covers. Nothing like...

Wow interesting question. I fell in love with the guitar and eventually performing with it back in the late 60s. Back then I did the whole garage band thing, then graduated to play solo classical in college. Playing became my part time job while in school. There’s something about the connection between the player and the guitar I found to be somewhat mystical. Perhaps it’s the close intimate, physical connection the guitar provides between the player and the instrument. Ultimately, I met my...

I love playing the guitar and singing. I play everyday. I learn everyday. Performing is something I decided to try about 3 years ago for the first time at 54. Now there’s no turning back. It’s an addiction. To perform and see some one in the crowd singing along or tapping there foot is fulfilling. To have people approach you after performing at a function and say “you made the party” feels great. To have people pay me for something I enjoy so much is fantastic. To try and perform better than...

Hi ST, interesting questions. Just out of interest, do you need this for some sort of survey? Now back to your questions. I can't answer this question in a couple of sentences so I'll do it this way. I've been playing guitar since I was about 16 (for 50 years now) and started singing in our church choir at about the age of 11 (when we moved in 1962 we lived right across the road from the village church). From being very small I was confronted with music through my parents who ran an...

Hmmm. This might take a while so bear with me. My mom was the organist at a Baptist Church for 25 years and it was just expected that every child in our family participate in the music program so that's where it started, I guess it's her fault. During my formative years I also sang in every chorus and small ensemble at school which led me to college. As a freshman in college I wrangled the first chair tenor away from a senior and he wasn't happy about it. Afterwards we became good friends...

I'm pretty fortunate (which I guess is really a matter of perspective) that I make my living playing music. And so, I have asked myself, and others, that very question many times. For me, it is because I have no other choice. Of course, there have been options....I have tried to have a "normal" career-type job (even one where the pay was incredible), but always found it very unfulfilling. I guess I can trace this back to a day when I was 7 years old and accidently heard a Miles Davis...

Oh, let's see. I've always loved music, and sang in the chorus and played in school orchestras in my younger years. Then, in Junior High I heard an AC/DC song and fell in love with the guitar. After my parents found me playing along with songs from the radio on a kid's guitar that wasn't even tuned right, they said to each other, "We better get this kid some lessons!". So they got me a Yamaha nylon string and did just that. Then I started a rock band with a few friends with a borrowed...

Why I Play My career was in advertising and marketing, and I loved the work dearly. But I seldom got to exercise creativity that was 100 percent mine. Music provides an unbridled path to sole ownership of the creative output. I get lost in playing, where nothing but the music matters. For me, that remains true when I’m alone or playing with others. Why I Perform People who seek out live performances are typically passionate about music, and having the ability to stoke that passion is a very...

What's changed for you in live sound?

ST ·
In another discussion, I got a chance to reflect on how things have changed in live sound. A few years ago I would have scoffed at the ideas I would: Play a carbon fibre guitar for most of my acoustic gigs Use a 16-pound, battery-powered portable PA for real gigs Use a 12-pound amp profiler through a personal PA to replace all my guitar amps I've changed my thinking about what's possible and the value I can get for my money. What kinds of things have changed for you? ST

@ST same here. Folks still look at us setting up either the S1 or L1 with a common comment of “is that it?” Then we start playing and the most common reaction is “Wow, all that sound from just that!?” Furthermore, it’s a sound where you can hear all the vocal and acoustic guitar nuances that doesn’t blow your eardrums out so people can still have a conversation. Truly a pleasure to play through and, at the risk of sounding like a Bose commercial, I think makes us play better.

I eased myself into Bose fairly gently going from a conventional Trace Acoustic PA via DB technologies satellite system then via line array (LD Maui 28). The weight of the subs became an issue and I swapped them for an L1 m1 with 2 xB2s then added a Tonematch. Still finding the powerbase a bit cumbersome I have bought an L1s which satisfies all my likely requirements venuewise. Thinking I might need more bass at larger venues I have also bought a B2 but this is possibly superfluous to my...

What's changed in my live sound? Good question ST. Almost everything. I have a feeling that this might turn out to be a long story, so make a coffee, get out the biscuits and make yourself comfortable. I started performing live with a Gospel folk group at the end of the 60's. It was a quartet with 2 guys and 2 girls. 2 Guitars, 4 vocals. Typical of the time. Most gigs were in churches and not amplified barring the small amplifier needed for the electric guitar my friend played (only clean).
