I was asked to help someone with my experiences via note, so I put it in my journal, and now im putting it here..
This is MY idea of how to go about things, and might not be the only way, or the right way. However, since the beginning of 2008, I have worked with over 80 bands. I only just started doing this in Dec/07
Where to start?
First you have to realize that you don't start big.. You shouldn't expect the 'Dixie Chicks' or 'Hansen' to be your first gig, so hit up some local bands..
It really helps to have a good appreciation for music. I am pretty well rounded, and I will shoot and listen to almost anything, but if you hate a certain genre, stay away from it, you might not have any fun.. At least to start out.
My first real paying gig was a for local band Roswell and would be the second time I shot them. The first was at an outdoor concert at a small town
