Getting your playing out there
If you're a guitarist looking for gigs it really helps if you've a quick way of showing people what you can do. A calling card if you will. This is even more important if you play numerous styles like I do. Generally people are resistant to the idea that a guitarist can be accomplished in more than one idiom. To combat this it helps to have the different styles back to back as they are in the video below. This way you're on to the next thing before they've got time to think, 'I don't like/am not looking for rock'. You also benefit from a sense impact as one style bumps up against another. Making a video is a good idea even if there's no real visuals as sharing video on social media is a lot easier than just audio alone. Enjoy and yes, I'm looking for gigs, so please share around!
