Thats why i avoid Tambora techniqueCactusWren wrote: ↑Wed Aug 30, 2017 5:02 amWhen nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
I hear ya. Pun intended. That is, I always make a point (as a former performer but not classical guitar) to acknowledge the performer at the wedding/restaurant/busking corner and tell them how I enjoyed their music. I do that to help reward their work, but more to train others I may be with to appreciate the performer and the work they put in to be there. Someone in that audience may be listening. Seek them out.Rognvald wrote: ↑Fri Sep 01, 2017 12:44 am"Maybe plateaus for performers are different. Maybe just spend time with your audience basking in their praise. Don't judge. Just say "thanks."
unless you're playing in a concert venue . . . don't expect praise. Most practical venues for a CG players: restaurants, wine festivals, weddings, etc., you'll be lucky if one in a hundred is listening. And, many times the sounds in the room are so deafening they'll never hear you play. At one wine tasting I played at a very exclusive country club, the talking and general din was so loud after the first hour, I was tempted to mime playing to see if anyone noticed. I didn't, however, but cancelled my third set and told the manager the music could not be heard from three feet away. And, I was playing "miked" through a Fender KXR60 piano Amp. Playing again . . .
