Busking Anyone?
« on: July 07, 2013, 06:53:26 AM »
May nakasubok na ba sa inyo nito? I'm planning to learn a few filipino folk song and perform publicly. Medyo kinakabahan ako dahil I've never done it before.  I don't see it as namamalimos or another source of income (have a stable job working for an airline) but a way to improve my skills and share music to the public.

Daming performers sa Queen St. dito bro! Kapag break, nanunud ako parati ng mga performers dahil nakakatuwa sila sa galing. Also, I wouldn't mind spending a couple of dollars after the performance.

Cool idea bro. Have a performance on video ah? Panuod.  :)

is Busking the way he played the guitar o Busking is another term for public performing?

Hmmm... I think it sort of does matter. I've seen buskers in a few different countries, and so far, it's the ones in the Philippines I actually feel sorry for. In other places, I really see the buskers having fun -- especially the ones playing badly. At least that's my perspective.

busking sa philippines kaya pwede ba? naisip ko na to dati eh. acoustic lang din.

Sa ibang bansa may permit pa para maging street performer. Paano, malaki kinikita ng mga street performers doon.  :)

madali lang kumuha ng permit.  :-D

challenging magbusking kasi kelangan hindi ka mahihiya sa ginagawa mo at kailangan maganda ang performance. medyo may pagkamahiyain ako personally kaya kapag nagawa ko ito ay malaking personal achievement. madali magperform pag may kasamang banda or kakilala ang audience pero kung mag-isa kalang parang nakakatakot.

my younger brother plays kundiman and old filipino folk songs (he's really good) kaya naaalala ko pag brownout dati sa mandaluyong, maglalabas lang siya ng acoustic guitar at tugtog lang siya sa labas ng bahay.  a few of our kapitbahay would gather around listening to him habang naghihintay ng kuryente.

This was one of the buskers I listened to on a walkabout in Amsterdam.


Nakakatuwa yung sistema nila. For one thing, ang lakas nung AER amp niya. Dinig na dinig siya doon sa buong Square which is easily more than a hectare of open air. Second, nag-uusap yung mga musikero. There were 3 or 4 of them and they respect each other and take turns. Kung sa Pilipinas yan, hula ko, kanya kanyang puwesto na yan sa iba't ibang sulok tapos sabay sabay tutugtog and agawan ng audience unless meron talagang organizer na may hawak.

Basta give your best shot everytime!! :razz:

I'd really like to (not really busk) play a short set sa Fort where I could plug my laptop, a small PA, and a guitar amp and mostly just my instrumentals.

dried it here for fun,

Played some ventures and shadows tunes + backing tracks..to some old folks dancing at the plaza near my pad...it was fun but, I was just running on a 2 watt microcube sa open area..kaya di ko maramdaman yung OMPPH..the old folks danced though and some of the old lolos were even amazed with the microcube....

when I asked them Id like to play for them..they immediately asked me..is it free? hahaha..

didnt earn anything that night..just good memories..


busking here could rake you good GAS and Beer money....haha..maybe sometime Ill give it  a go again..

whats nice here is there are nice parks where you can go to especially during spring..bring your guitars..and instruments with a bunch of friends and just play...theres always a crowd who will watch you with delight...

unlike back home medyo iba environment lao sa kalye, siguradong papaalisin ka na agad ng mga sekyu--"SER,SER! BAWAL YAN! KUHA KAYO PERMIT,SER"..or may mangugulo na mga jologs at batang hamog..baka nakawin pa gear mo...
