It takes passion, skill and love for music to be a guitarist or a musician. Everybody knows and it’s not easy to become the guy who becomes a famous musician. It’s always a gamble, a hard challenge. Because of this many give up their dream to find a viable way to make money aside from being a guitarist or a musician. For every musician, it’s a challenge to be able to ditch the regular job and have the opportunity making a living by playing music. Here is one idea to making money by playing music.
Tip jars. This is not a way to make money to pay up your bills but it can give you a pretty decent cash if you need it at a given moment. The key to the tip jar is not just playing in an area where there are a lot of people but to play outside of a busy area where there are a lot of bars and casinos. This makes a huge difference on how open and willing they will be with their wallets or money. In these places people feel lucky and loosen up that’s why they can give big tips to musicians on the street. Another important key is to be comfortable when playing your instrument and music.
