After a long vacation from the art form I've recently spent some time busking both at a festival where they allowed such activities and at a local market where it is regulated. I guess I've gotten a little soft in my time away because I don't remember it being such hard work. It also happened to be the very hottest days of the summer thus far. I was completely drenched by the time I had finished each set and unfortunately not very well received at the market, even though I was playing to the very best of my ability. I'm certain the heat of the day had something to do with the general lack of interest by those passing. Well, if nothing else, it was good excercise, and If you can work up a sweat with a good set of music, it certainly must be healthy for the ol' cardio-vascular and cardio-respiratory systems.
