Thread Name: sing to recorded music- nursing home
Subject: RE: sing to recorded music- nursing home
hmmm...a much vexed question for me at the moment.

i originally did a gig working with backing trax and i am now convinced its the best way. with a radio mic - it gives you freedom to perform. and performance is what makes you different from the karaoke singer. you can interract with the audience.

i've been trying to work with just a guitar - do the same thing. that has superficially many advantages. you can change key, change the song at will etc. however to play the guitar at anything other than a thrash you need to get into radio mics, taping radio mics to your face. i find they keep falling off when you sweat!
