Do you analyze your performances after the fact? If so… how long do you wait? Paul and Dave discuss the relative merits of when this is helpful, and how.
But first, a fight! Well, not really, but there’s a sternly-worded discussion to be had about sitting vs. standing at your gigs.
Paul and Dave will be playing together again next week, too, so they talk a little about that, as well… with more to come next week!
All of this and more. Press play and enjoy!

Real estate agents and musicians share a common truth: location matters. What’s your location like? What’s your scene like? Has it changed? Have you stopped recently and really evaluated what you’ve got around you? That’s what Paul and Dave do to start today’s show.
Then it’s on to listener feedback, where Dan shares some great advice for insuring your instruments and Rob encourages your two favorite weekend warriors to share their advice on vocal mics.
Lastly, are you picky? I mean, of course you are. You’re a discerning podcast listener who knows quality when you find it! But… are you picky in your band? Do you spend time dissecting the details of every venue that you play? Are you a complainer? Are you too picky? Let’s find out together, shall we? Press play and enjoy!
Is it a jam session if no music is played? What if music is discussed? Your two favorite weekend warriors say, “yes!” to these questions, and start off the episode with a jam session about setlists.
Listen as Paul and Dave talk through a few of their recent setlist choices and how they worked out. During this, of course, you’ll learn about the beauty of shared guilty pleasures. We promise, all family-friendly!
Then it’s on to a few listener questions, including one about insuring your equipment.
When you find an episode that has great catchphrases like “Woodshedding The Breaks”, “Stay Humble and Hungry”, “One Note per Word”, and “The Martini Metric”, you know it’s gonna be good. Listen as Paul and Dave, your two favorite weekend warriors, have a verbal jam session in which they not only discuss these things but relate them all together. Press play, enjoy, and always be performing!
