dwditty Should good players play out? (66* d) RE: Should good players play out? 18 Jun 10

Not that I am particular religious, but some things from the Bible make sense to me (and by me, I mean me personally). One such passage is about hiding a candle under a bushel (This Little Light of Mine). Everyone has talents that can benefit the world, and the story encourages people to share them. I like that idea and play out often - from gigs in noisy bars to several volunteer gigs where the music sometimes seems to make a difference. But, all of this is, of course, simply my own feelings (or maybe it is just rationalization to justify my own ego-based motivations).

Is entertaining people with your talents an obligation? I don't think so. That being said, I do think that seeing a group of people enjoying themselves by being entertained is a good thing, in general. If one has the talent to offer that enjoyment, I think it is a nice thing to do, but only if one desires to do so.

Oh, and my highest musical moments have come when I am just sitting and playing music for my own enjoyment.
