I've recently been working on a solo set -- a mix of covers and originals. But I've never played solo before -- looking for any tips/observations.
Still not quite sure what my physical set-up is -- it's the 335 and/or the acoustic, probably thru the little 40w Fender Acoustasonic jr which I bought for my birthday, plus my SM58 on vocals. Maybe a little condenser acoustic mic on the guitar too.
The songs are a mix of my favorite 'perfect songs' and some originals. I've played hundreds of times in bands but I've never played solo before and I'm really looking for anything you can tell me about what matters, what to worry about and what not to worry about.
Even though it's very rural, there are a ton of places round here which have open mics and that kind of thing, mostly very low key, but for my own sanity I really want to be as good as I can be.
