Do you hate your job?
Nope just the people there..LOL
I love my job, so far. I have KY been here for a few months.
Autocorrect changed only to KY. Weird. 🙄
Hate? No. But have a love/hate relationship with it.
Most days, yes. But I like my coworkers.
Nah. I get to play music for a living.
Awsome! That was my dream but I've never been able to make more than a side hustle out of it myself.
It can be tough at times because I do NOT sing well, so I can’t do solo gigs that require vocals (always the accompaniment, never the frontman). I am however able to play live songs I’ve never heard before on a hand full of instruments so I get a lot of mercenary work.
I've been playing guitar for 25 years but I didn't have the self confidence to sing until 4 or 5 years ago. Sometimes it goes really well, but sometimes I end up just screeching on a note I thought I could hit, even if I hit it in practice.
My brother played professionally in a metal band for a while, but he didn't like touring. Playing local shows it was all about the music but then once that got out in the wider world and were surrounded by drugs and groupies and stuff he just wanted to come home and work a normal job and play music for the fun of it like he started out doing.
I’ve done a tiny amount of touring and seen a bit of that. It seems like one of the worst parts Is having to play tunes you don’t care for, and/or you’ve played 1000 times.
As for singing, I have the confidence, not the pipes!
All jobs can be stressful, but I am treated well where I am at, and paid a competitive rate, so I'm pretty happy with it.
Hi Barry. Welcome back!
Thanks but I don’t think it’s a good place for me. So, I don’t know if I’ll stay. The Trumpsters on here have gotten more sophomoric and irrational.
I hope you stay but certainly understand if you don’t. This place is toxic for some people. Do what best for you.
