Title: trying to put together wonderful blues tune to make a good setlist
Post by: bluespreachercreighton on December 30, 2018, 07:03:01 AM
hello everyone
I am looking for some advice, I have been playing shows for a year now, I do mostly Blues, and a little Banjo (uncle dave macon is my relative), and I am trying to put together a variety of pre-war blues tunes that would make a wonderful show?
what artists songs would you recommend I do?I play songs also I have written myself. I just want to make a good show that is filled with wonderful songs.

Hi Creighton,
I would recommend that you select the songs you most enjoy singing and playing yourself for your set list.  If you try to calculate in advance what an audience will respond to, you may just guess wrong or end up selecting material you don't really like because you think it appeals to the audience.  If you choose the material you like best, your liking for it will communicate to the audience.  If you can vary the tempos and keys that you play in, it will be a more dynamic show than if you do several consecutive songs in the same key and tempo.  Good luck with your performing.
All best,
Johnm
