Busking is really the best way to get over yourself. Many people just walk by. The ones that stop listen and go on their way. I was nervous at first, but when I realized people were more interested in vegetables than me, my nerves quickly settled, and I focused on the music. Of course, I messed up at points, but no one noticed or called me out on it! I made $42.00 in 15 mins. Pretty awesome! I did not have a lot of repertoire planned, so I only played for 20 mins. I would love a job that paid $42.00 an hour or every 20 mins!!

Just too cool

This is what I'm  planning to do

I'm a 63 yr old 'old fart' that wants to take it to the people. If only I was a good a fiddle player as you are.

You are an inspiration. 

Thanks

Hope it's ok with you.
