Hey TB, I've been wanting to start playing gigs and such recently. I just thought I'd ask some of the experienced people here for some general advice. What steps should I step to start out? What are some things I have to look out for? What are some of the "manners" in gigging that I should be aware of? If I show up for a gig, what are some of the first things I should do? Just some stuff that I've been wondering about. Feel free to just add anything you think would help out a newbie musician! (To be honest, I don't know about anything in the music business) I realize there is a sticky that covers a lot of this stuff, but I'm mainly baffled over things like the business and political aspects of it all. Thanks in advance!
