There really aren't any opportunities for me to play out. I've never wanted to play covers. I've always wanted to do original material. Additionally my music isn't mainstream. I craate ambient electronic stuff. So there's really no venue and no audience. When I was younger there seemed to be more of a scene and I did gig some but as I've gotten older (51) most of my friends have dropped music and so no acene Ultimately I am happy. I've always played for myself anyway. Someone above mentioned playing was like their mediation and I get where their coming from.
