---- — There are too many good bands in the world to let yourself be an amateur.
Music is fun to play, but if you want your band to get noticed, try to form a group that can play in tune together, and people who are very professional.
If you want to make a living with music, spend lots of time practicing. It's really important.
Your performance IS a show. Even though you are trying to build a career, make sure your audience has a good time.
