Not that this is really a "professional" observation, but how many people think seriously about their performance "presentation"? I know we work hard on what we play and how... but what about the way we present ourselves, yes the "visual". looking around Talkbass, here is my list of things not to do.... no promotion pics, album pics etc. in front of brickwalls never perform in shorts pants of any kind. if you have more than 4 strings, play them all! ... there are more I am sure... maybe I am too "old school" but maybe "you do play better in your suit."
