Obtaining acoustic gigs in Aberdeen.

Recommended Posts

I have written a bunch of acoustic songs with a dark feel/samples and would like to start playing gigs.

Any tips/contacts for this type of music?

An example of my music is in the feedback forum.

Oh yeah...do you think that there is a market (perhaps wrong word) for instrumental acoustic music or do you think it should have vocals? Are there any other people in Aberdeen who play purely instrumental acoustic music?

You could always try the local open mics, such as the scott ironside open mic or sundays at moorings.

I'd be interested to have a 'wee gander at these tunes bud!

Hey man, yeah open mike might be a good way to start.

Yeah have a listen and let me know what you think on the feedback forum. Any constructive criticism/thoughts is appreciated.

I can imagine it going down well at a Vocoustics night, too.

Chris Carroll does a lot of instrumental pieces (although he does sing, too), and they always go down well.

Were you considering singing yourself, or adding a vocalist?

Undecided Alan, I reckon that if there is vocals it would be best if someone else did it.:up:

Don't diss yourself hog, you've got some vocal talent from what i've heard. Do some practicing and you never know :up:
