  My plans begin to take shape
Posted by: Morpethian - 19-08-2017, 22:12 - Forum: Musicians Forum - Replies (7)

I rank among the worst instrumental musicians in the world, but many people think I can sing.  Maybe now is the time to make plans for actually performing live.

I hope to meet an instrumental musician I can work with – preferably a keyboard player – and then start playing live in some local venues – probably pubs to start off with.

Below is an example of what can be achieved with just a keyboard and a vocalist:
 




I visited a music shop today, and it seems that I could buy the necessary equipment – microphone, mixer, and speaker – for just a few hundred.

So what is my next step?  Comments are welcome.

  What do I need to know about copyright?
Posted by: Morpethian - 18-08-2017, 23:00 - Forum: Musicians Forum - Replies (2)

A year or two back, someone suggested that I upload videos to YouTube of me singing, and said that I could make money from advertising.  More recently I have thought about putting a group together to play some local venues.
My bugbear is copyright law.  I imagine that most people who upload cover videos to YouTube do not seek copyright permission, but a few do.  Also, I imagine that buskers do not normally seek copyright permission, but maybe some of them do.
Sometimes there are ways around copyright law.  For example I once watched a school production of High School Musical, where I was invited to pay £2 for my ticket, but had the option of a free ticket.  Apparently this was done to avoid paying a copyright fee.
What I wonder is whether or not I should seek copyright permission to perform songs in a small venue such as a pub, where the audience does not pay an admission fee.
Can anyone advise?
