I recently bought a strap for my guitar.
(Random tangent here: I'm suddenly thinking about teachers using the strap on students at school in the olden days. I am SO GLAD that is no longer the case... I would probably get smacked at least once a day for daydreaming/asking questions that have nothing to do with the lesson/writing instead of listening... ANYWAY.)
This was possibly the best ten dollars I ever spent. (Aside from protein bars. Except I've probably spent closer to ten times ten on those... again, ANYWAY...) At first, I was sceptical. Would I actually be able to play with this thing? Won't it just constantly be hitting my leg?
The answer: NO!
Here I am:
I seriously just wandered around on the deck for about an hour, singing extremely loudly (and probably very out of tune. Neighbours, this is payback for all the times I've had to listen to your screaming children.)- so basically, having fun!
And as you can tell, the outfit is very important too. To be a musician, one must have a unique style... which is why I chose my old basketball shirt (free! and comfy! What more could you want) + bare feet (who needs shoes? It's summer!) + cupcake skirt (just to add a little style).
If I owned a cowboy hat, I would have thrown that in too. (Or a dinosaur hat! Still waiting, guys... wink wink.) Ah well, next time. Do you have specific outfits you wear for different random purposes? (Like pumping yourself up, that wonderful shirt that makes you look like a model, etc)
Of course, when I'm busking, I try to look a a little more stylish:
Who cares how I sound, as long as I look good? And just out of curiosity- what's your opinion on busking? Do you ever stay and listen?
As you could possibly tell from the title, this is my entry to Jenny Matlock's wonderful linkup!
