Default Hi all!

Newbie here, brazilian guitar player and musician. Trying to become a professional one I might add. Been studying music in a Federal Funded College for about five months and I guess this is it.

You can check out a bit of my playing, here:

Hi FromSPAAACE. Welcome to our part of the galaxy.

I think of myself more as a working musician than a professional musician.

Thanks!

Hm, why so?

I get a few gigs from time to time and I'm currently trying to teach, so 'working musician' could be a good label.

My audiences do not seem interested in complex music. They want to hear a band play "Brown Eyed Girl" or "Margaritaville". So I play what people want to hear (mostly chords) and I keep getting offered work.

I'm not the teaching type although I jam with lots of people and we all earn from each other.

Hey, at least you keep getting music related work. But yes, I understand perfectly what you mean. Is there a place where can I hear your stuff?

Me neither, at least not right now. But I have to figure out how I can earn some money while keeping myself in touch with music as a whole. Also, I have to put some use to the fact that I'm majoring in Music Education (not my first choice, but the only way to study music around here).

I had the privilege of being in Brazil one year, stayed right on the Copa Cabaņa strip. The girls, restaurants music and beaches were an absolute delight.

Enjoyed myself so much when I came back to Jersey the first thing I researched was Brazilian restaurants that served Rodizio. Found several near me in Newark NJ! Not as good as in Brazil but pretty damned good!

That's pretty cool, Louie. I've been there a couple of times. Hope you really enjoyed your stay because many foreign tourists didn't have the same experience.
