i wrote a song… in my mind


with 5 comments

i don’t like to do the same thing twice.  i hate repeating myself.  i would find it hard to be a teacher or professor because you’d be teaching the same thing multiple times.  i guess the art and joy of teaching would be to teach in a way that is always dynamic and different for every class.

so one thing i’ve been thinking about lately is how repetitive being a musician is.  i mean, if i ever go on tour (and i mean a BIG if) i’d be performing the same songs night after night, maybe doing the same jokes city after city, giving the same answers for interviews.  haha, for some reason i’m now thinking i’m going to be huge.  but i guess much like being a teacher, the creative art of musicianship is to make no two performances alike.

i don’t want to be known as a one-trick pony.  i like to mix it up.  you know, keep people on their toes.  it’s kind of hard sometimes because in relation to my blog, sometimes i get these ideas to share, but i know if i just splurge them all in one post, i got nothing for the next one.

how do you keep things new?

  2. It’s repetitive for the artist, but it’s always a new experience for the audience. Plus they get paid big bucks, so I guess they don’t mind. Haha.
