I wish I could make money from playing. Have done a couple times, but England isn't really much of a place for it. I know over in America, you can end up making $500 or possibly more, just for playing other peoples' songs. So jealous.
This thread is for those of us who can actually play music, and that does include all the ways you can create it. Whether you play guitar, sing, do it on a computer, bang your head against a wall... Though I'll worry about you if the latter. =P
How about some links to some of your stuff on the net? If you have a youtube vid or a soundcloud account, feel free to share with us ...
Let's hear from you guys. =]
I taught piano for about 17 years (until early in 2006), played piano and organ for a couple of churches during those years, and composed a number of songs starting with when I was a kid. I used to listen to music a lot too, but honestly I am just not that into it anymore. Haven't touched the piano for a few years at least, and the last time I did touch it, I struggled and lost interest after maybe a week of practicing.
Now I mostly do reading, and internet stuff like Facebook and this forum.
