Have you every felt like you were in a rut? That's exactly how I've felt in my music career in the last few months. I'm playing the same gigs and getting paid the same money...The only solution I know of is to change it and seek out new opportunities. Some of the groups I've played with have pretty much fallen apart.
Sometimes change is good..It helps us to become better people and in my case a better musician. I won't get better unless I'm constantly challenged to be better.
So I guess it's a good thing that I feel this way. If I didn't...I would never practice or strive to get better. I would never analyze the situation I'm in to see if there's growth musically. TTYL
