    I live in Scotland, in a town right next to Glasgow.. and Sauchiehall Street (a narrow, shallow sloped strip, jam packed with commuters) is quite well known around here for being 'Busktown'.

    There's usually 5-7 acts on at a time spread down this shallow slope of a street and I figure me and my buddy (and possibly someone else) could set up a nice little jam and play some songs ranging from popular new rock/acoustic music to older more classic rock and acoustic records.

    The question is.. do you think it's worth it? It's really hard to find g igs around here and besides the internet and harassing radio studios, this is the only way we can get some exposure as a group.

    I have a laaarge following (8000+ subscribers for MW2 Gameplay vids) on YouTube where I could promote the music too and possibly direct them to a Youtube channel with videos or recordings of our music.

    So yeah, should we busk or not? I could get someone to (very professionally) record our performances as examples of us 'on the spot' or 'live', I guess.

    I think you have already answered your question. If it's hard to get gigs, and you want exposure, then busking is the next best thing to actually having a show. It's better than just sitting so do it.

    Look for an average ginger kid, a pretty sick acoustic guitar player and possible someone banging a few drums and shout 'YO LASGUNZZZZZ' and I'll be like 'what?' because I pretend I don't have a whole 2nd life on the internet.

    Dunno, we're still kinda learning what songs we wanna play regularly and writing a list of songs we can swap around with older ones etc.

    Do busking arrangements of cheesey music, everyone loves cheesey music that reminds them of when they were younger.
