In order to successfully promote your band’s music and get new shows, you’ve got to stick out from the plethora of other bands that are vying for your fans attention. Here are some things you can do to make sure that your band’s unique, giving it a huge advantage over your competition.
If you’re genuine and are looking to buy, they should let you try out guitar s. There’s not reason you shouldn’t try out guitars in the shop and if they refuse, it’s probably because the guy is just having a bad day. You might have to go back on a Monday afternoon when it’s quieter. Saturday afternoons are the busiest so avoid them if you can. Always take your jacket or belt off when you try out a bass guitar to avoid scratching the back of it with zips and buckles.
Get a social life. Nothing perks people up like going out with others and having a good time. Interact with mixed age groups as well as with people in your age group, so you get a variety of stimulation and activity.
Noise Gates: These open & close to let sound through or block sound depending on their Threshold settings. Think of them as a valve, or hose bib. Gates do basically the same thing as the above mentioned trick with silencing an instrument rest point. They can be used to take out the bass drum bleed from a snare mic, or use corrective EQ to achieve the same results.
Chocolates and ice cream are the best comfort foods out there – so take in huge helpings of them. If you’ve been craving for caloric foods like burgers and fries, go and eat them. Give yourself a break and take in as much comfort food as you can to make yourself feel better. The sugar rush should make you feel better. This should stop in a few days however, so you don’t gain much weight.
We all have pet peeves or recurring situations that tend to put us over the edge. Maybe it’s getting dressed (you are not a morning person), or drive-time traffic. Be aware of your mood and stay prepared to respond instead of react.
Do not forget that you have to take one day at a time. Do not worry if you feel that you have been grieving for a long time. Each day is a new day and rushing things would only make things worse.
