  • Small Wins Turned Into Paid Gig!

    Posted by NW-NJ-Guitar-Dave on November 7, 2022 at 7:25 am

    I just wanted to share my story how a number of small wins turn into a huge milestone for me. I have been playing for 40+ years at home and with friends, never in front of people that I didn’t know. Earlier this year, I started going to a local open mic night (2 song set). After about 4-5 open mic night sessions, I received a call from one of the open mic organizers that a local restaurant was looking for an acoustic guitar player to play a 2 hour set a few times a month and they recommended me based upon the open mic nights!

    I played my first paid gig yesterday! It felt great!

    Fantastic! And indeed inspirational for those of us who still hesitate to play in front of other people. Pretty cool that the open mic organizers recommended you.
