I've become burnt out on playing music latley. I've been playing bars for the past year. (I know that's not very long compared to a lot of people) The band I'm playing with, it seems like it's becoming self-defeating. Due to the economy and such, people aren't going out to bars as much, thus resulting in cancelled gigs, and just plain, not getting gigs at all. Very popular local bands aren't playing very much anymore. I'm burnt out on the scene due to greedy clubs and bands/musicians with huge egos. I did a recording project with a few people last week, which was really cool. I just feel that I'm not really doing what I want with music, and I'm thinking maybe I need to just get away from it for a couple of months. Have any of you ever felt this way. My band has a gig on Saturday, then after that, we don't have any booked for a loooooooooooong time. I also might be moving away for a job, so that would give me some downtime. I really want to get a better amp system. (Look in my profile and you'll see why ) Just wondering if any of you have every felt burnt out on music/performing.
