What do you like best?

Unread post by shelly0624 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 7:48 pm

I'm curious ..how many prefer performing live and how many enjoy music in a more private way, for relaxation. A lot of people do both, but which one do you enjoy most? I know that those who love to perform get a lot of energy from a crowd.. (my dad was like that) ...but also those who prefer to play at home get something from the music in another way.

Me, I always enjoyed MOST playing in the late hours of the night when everyone was asleep (or they were trying to, as much as one can when someone is playing guitar in the kitchen). :P I played publically, but it wasn't my favorite thing. In fact, I had to get over the initial feeling that I was opening my diary for others to see, so to speak. I know, also, that most creative stuff, like song-writing, happens privately ..but can also happen collectively, with a band. Anyway... just curious.

I have never really had any interest in performing on stage or anything like that. I have played at parties and been in bands of course. I also managed a punk rock group back in the 90's and we toured all over the place but I never had any ambition to be "up there" performing. I took care of the techy stuff, amps, mixers, lighting, string changes etc. That was far more fun for me :)

I much prefer to play in the quiet of my home environment...and yes usually in the early hours of the morning too ;) I keep my guitars next to me when I am working online and so when I am waiting for something to upload/download etc I can pick one up and play around with a few ideas. I am more than happy with that (Y)

Well I love to perform live for the energy and the adrenaline you feel on a stage, and the complicity with bandmates, but I enjoy music in private too, especially to be creative and write my music or try new ideas.
