Thanks Danny... your comments are very important to me because you are doing exactly what I want to do.

As a seasoned pro, do you have any suggestions?


Well I am "seasoned" for sure, in more ways than one. But regarding your show all I have to say is, if you can do what you did for an hour or so "you can take it on the road right now". Of course the more songs in the playlist the longer duration gigs you can go after.

I like the fact that while you did work the crowd (although virtual) very well you kept a good balance of banter and music. As I say this I am always reminded of a producer friend back in Nashville who used to book for a popular CMT show as he would often comment as to why do most singers, especially songwriters, tend to talk and tell stories when they were hired to sing their songs, not to explain how and why they wrote it in the 1st place.

You had a great balance of give and take with your "ghost" audience, combined with song intros and actual "sanging" time. And I know this does not happen by accident so I know you did some pre-planning before counting off your first tune . . . it worked.

You did good!

That's a big number -- way to go drawing them in. You must be doing something right!

nah.. I just spammed all my friends and relatives with emails telling them to come watch and to tell everybody they know.

when you look at it that way, 29 friends is pretty lame.

Then you have to subtract out the SJ regulars. ;-(

but, as Mac said, advertising always generates more viewers than just showing up unannounced. People who have access to a large contact list (like twitter,a blog, facebook etc) can effectively notify thousands of acquaintances and strangers very quickly.
unfortunately, I don't have any such accounts. Maybe I should.

4. Someone like you – Adele
5. Will you still love me tomorrow – Carole King
6. Its time (the last farewell) – Joanne Cooper original – backing done in BIAB
7. Sail Away – David Gray
8. Last Cigarette – K.D. Lang - backing done in BIAB (time permitting!!)
Hope to see you all there!

I might have to do an opener for Joanne, whose doing an opener for Pat. It all depends on when my wife starts her piano lessons. I might have to go on at 9:30am.

The good thing is that my performance will make you look forward to Joanne's and Pat's shows even more (ha, ha).

@ Danny Campo:

just a thought, but I've noticed a few SJ performers who set up the web cam when playing gigs and stream the whole thing.

That might be the perfect combination for you, providing the gig location has WIFI that you can use.

I signed up for the 9:30am slot (eastern) on Saturday for an early morning show before Joanne and Pat.

I am off to radio shack today to buy a 1/8 stereo to 1/4 mono jack to plug my mp3 player into my audio device. If the conversion from stereo to mono is not too awful, I plan on doing a three song set with backing tracks after Pat is done. If the sound isn't good enough, then I will wait until I get a mixer to use backing tracks. I figure a $7 adapter is worth the risk!

The mixer I am looking at is the Peavey PV 6 USB Compact USB Mixer. With 10% off for the columbus day sale, I can get it for $90. I can plug in my mic (needs external phantom power, since the PV6 only has 15V phantom) to one input, my electric guitar cable into the 3/4 input (I have a stereo output cable from my gdec headphone out) and the RCA tape in from my mp3 player. I think that should work. As always, the reviews are from 5* to folks complaining that there is too much noise from the USB connection (and that seems to be a common complaint from usb mixer users). Nothing is ever straightforward and easy!

EDIT: of course, the 10% discount doesn't apply! It is already on-sale at $100.

the mixer looks like a fun addition to your SJ setup! I look forward to hearing the songs you play with backing tracks!

(And thanks for saving it until I can watch...)

The webcam says I am using the US-224 A/B for audio --> but the dang thing only hears what is being plugged into the "A" channel!! I can't figure out how to tell it to listen to both the A & B channels!

No backing tracks for me tomorrow -- unless I just put the boom box behind me (ha, ha).

Kevin, before you give up on trax tomorrow, why not check the local craig's list or guitar center for a mixer? With a little luck, you could have a new or used mixer in your possession this very evening...

ya know, that's not a bad idea if you're playing an acoustic set anyway...

I'm cancelling my early morning set. I have to go into the big city of charlottesville this morning and I don't know when I will return. I hopefully will get back in time to see Joanne and Pat do their sets.

There goes your big tip! I guess I'll split it with Joanne and Pat.

thanks to everybody who stuck around during my train wreck. I'm pretty sure JosieC sabotaged me somehow, but I'm not yet sure how she pulled it off. ;-)

but, the good news is that I EXPECT things to go wrong during a learning curve. Its part of what SJ is all about, seeing what works and what fails, while in the presence of knowledgeable people who can offer suggestions and solutions.

The ironic thing is that I thought I HAD turned off the screen saver... apparently not

At least JosieC's wonderfulness made it worthwhile for the people who came for the show

Hi Pat. I enjoyed what I saw of your performance but had to leave because I am getting VERY frustrated with my slow internet connection!!!

I don't think everyone understands how hard it is trying to do everything yourself. It is especially difficult when you cant hear anything!! Singing, remembering chords and lyrics, playing, sound engineering as well as engaging the audience. Not easy. Looks easy but it's not.

At least when we are playing live gigs we hear what is going on around us and with jelly I find it frustrating that I can't hear what I sound like. I guess we gotta keep an eye on the screen and look for feedback interactively.

Well done for coming back. We all appreciated it and you got some great comments.

I went ahead and ordered the PV6 USB Mixer -- I hope it is the right one. The main complaint about all these low end mixers is the potential for noise. According to the reviews, some of the units are quiet and some of them are terribly noisy. I hope I get a good one!

Kevin,
I think you'll be VERY happy with it! What might be considered noisy in a recording studio won't be a problem playing on SJ

The mixer opens up options you just don't have with only a mic.Can't wait to hear your first set with trax.

Pat,

I’m sorry I missed your show and Joanne’s. I didn’t get back until around 1 o’cl and both of you had finished. I’ll try to catch the next one.

I just noticed that they are posting show times in Central Standard Time. That should eliminate some confusion. Also, if you click on "follow this artist" it will email a reminder just prior to the performance.
