[size=84]Guitarists Needed for Europe/UK gig: Steve Howe, S. Hackett, Greg Lake, Julian Bream, Rutherford-Genesis, etc. influenced
(as variation of my previous post : http://forum.yestalk.org/showthread.php?p=111686#post111686
I have a fledgling plan to go busking(playing in the streets) as a wandering minstrel this spring/summer.
I have extensive experience
, over a decade
, living and travelling in Europe(both resident and free form traveller)and speak several Euro languages fluently; and did lots of open mike, small bar gigs, and a few busking experiences under my belt in different European capitals.
This is just an idea at moment, a rough plan...
I'd need fellow musicans(mainly guitarists) who have at least some talent playing Steve Howe, Steve Hackett, Paco de Lucia/Al DiMeola--Steve Howe, S. Hackett, Greg Lake, Julian Bream, Rutherford-Genesis, , etc, guitar pieces and who could peform bravely in a guitar duo/trio out in public on streets or finding temporary gigs in bars and pubs.
The extended vagabonding "gig" would entail courageous playing in public (with or without portable battery-powered amp), lots of trains, hitchhiking, hiking, walking long distances, some rough camping when necessary, staying in cheap hotels, and being open to adventure. Partner guitarists must be willing to undergo certain discomforts of "vagabond" travelling...technical comforts such as Internet and music will be possible(PDA, Mp3 players-if you have them)
At present my repertoire includes Howe solo pieces, Bach guitar, Vivaldi,Hackett solo pieces, Yes, Genesis, Paco de Lucia, Satie, and several classical concert level pieces, plus some rock and jazz and flamenco(paco de Lucia) and ragtime stuff I have composed.
Stuff to take: Backpack, guitar or other instrument, portable battery-powered amp?
This is all in initial planning stages..
Income would depend on how well we play
/how generous the audience!
