So, my buddy and I are working up a song list to try getting some acoustic cover gigs a shot. Basically, trying to get gigs at local bars/pubs, mainly college crowd, me on my 12-string acoustic and singing, him on djembe/some backing vocals, we may add acoustic bass or second guitar if one/both of our other buddies want in on it lol Mostly looking to have fun, maybe make a little cash. The kind of stuff we're thinking of is 90s and newer rock, maybe the occasional classic rock/pop song, stuff college kids today will know and sing along with while drunk. We've got a list of about 27 songs right now (not sure how many minutes it works out to). Where I need advice:
-How many songs should we have learned before we start looking for gigs?
-Do you recommend recording a few songs and throwing up a myspace to help with gig-finding?
-Any song suggestions?
- I'd say at least 30-40
- Yes, easy way for people to check you out.
- anything from Ki.
Gigging is phun!
