Living as an Artist – Day 12

Make no mistake about it, being an artist is work. I picked up my guitar and started getting prepared to play on the streets. I just started practicing the blues. I learned a Elmore James tune called, “It hurts me too”. This is the only song I know completely. I know I don’t have the lyrics memorized. I had to put my own style to  it to be able to play it through.

I practiced two hours and my wrist and fingertips are sore. I’m not quite sure how much money I’m going to make but I think I will play two songs and and then go to the park and learn another song and go back again. That will be the routine.
