Who is performing?

I was just wondering who is performing right now? I know that it is hard, but I want to see if there are other people that are doing what they love.

I haven’t even been able to jam with my “band” for months. Really frustrating, but I understand what needs to be done when lives are at risk. We’ve been trying to practice individually and have done a bit of online collaboration on Soundtrap, but that’s it. Unfortunately, the bass is a rhythm instrument, so playing alone feels more painful than say a guitar.

Recently I mentioned here about Jamulus and its community.

Well those guys are hosting an event every saturday where people around the world can sign up for a song to play together. Reharse it for a week and perform it online in a live stream

This is the result of this week…

For sure it is goofy but much more easier in respect to landing any gig for a beginner musician like myself let alone in the days of COVID.

I am currently building up courage for that…

Wasn’t aware of this. Thanks for sharing. I had looked into online collabs with various people, but not live sessions like this. I wonder how they are dealing with latency to ensure everyone is in time with each other.

I tried to explain that here to my best.

But to simply put it they’re looking for methods to get it as low as possible.

Thanks. I tried JamKazam and didn’t really like it. I’ve been using Soundtrap to work with my guitarist friend, but that is more passing the baton back and forth and creating a track. I’ll check out Jamulus a bit more. Setting up a server, etc. isn’t an issue for me.

I’m out in Northern California near San Francisco.
I haven’t taken a gig since February 2020.
Some folks are out playing - it’s only outdoors, and for the most part, solo guitar/vocals situations.
Did some videos for online festivals and just for fun, but no actual gathering and performing here.
yet.

Haven’t jammed with me band since March 2020 due to COVID 19 restrictions here in Ireland

I haven’t performed in 3-4 yrs so as much as I’d like to blame Covid…

Haven’t played live since college :slight_smile:
