MK Exposure thru CD sales vs. Live Concerts (20) RE: Exposure thru CD sales vs. Live Concerts 19 Nov 00

I appreciate the responses here and they make perfect and logical sense. My problem at the moment, is that while I would like to consider releasing CDs at some point (once I have homed in on a direction or a concept for said CD(s), I have absolutely no wish, desire nor inclination to pay my dues all over again, which would include doing all the things mentioned above. (I did it for 20 years as a keyboard player. I ain't gonna do it again as a guitar player.) It's just I keep getting told (by several people who's opinions I respect) that I should have "goal" with respect to my playing. It's something I enjoy, something that I continually work at, and something that is thankfully, continuing to improve. Does it have to be shared? Can't I just do it for my own personal growth as a musician without having to impose conditions and goals upon it? Sure recognition is nice...but recognition also equals validation...and I don't need a lot of validation. Guess it's a question of attitude verses ego?
