Rick Fielding Most lucrative songs for busking? (62* d) RE: Most lucrative songs for busking? 19 May 03


Latin songs? How about Ricky Martin's "La Vida Loca"?

Oh........oops!!! put "ha ha" at end of first statement. Don't want anyone thinking I was serious (or inhaling tetra-pacs)

Boy does that 'sunglasses thing' make sense. I can't believe how long it took me to click into it. Your 'take' literally doubles instantly.

Marion...I learned long ago to politely say "not today thanks" (and accept the compliment)...Mark would have passed out on the pavement! He didn't turn down all the joints stuffed into his pockets and case though.

My experience with busking was a tad odd. I'd take students who were starting to sound like musicians out to the streets for an hour or so and try to get them acclimatized. The best practice I know is the repetition and hard singing and playing on the street or in the subway. My heros WERE Rev. Davis and Doc Watson after all. Two guys who knew a LOT about busking.
