I constantly see guitarist playing on the street no matter what city I live in. I must say that it takes a lot of bravery to just go out and play in front of tons of strangers. I know that many of you play in bands already but there are still many of us that don't. Some of the street guitarist are actually pretty phenomenal.


Check out this street guitarist!


I wanted to ask all of you GMC'ers if any of you have played on the street before? What was it like? Did you do it for money?

This guy is amazing. I think playing on the street like this is a great way to get over stage fright, because you're not really the center of attention, but you're still out there. I always thought of doing it, but I'd probably get arrested for disturbing the peace and/or risk having a complete stranger grab my guitar and smash it over my head.

haha, that's one way to get you stop playing. I guess the more polite way would be to pay you to stop smile.gif
