Last night I played in the local showdown in Commerce, Ga. I didn't make the cut but had a very positive experience. I noticed that I had to focus so much on my guitar playing that I lost some of the effect of my original song than if I had a backing track and sang. I also noticed that most of the others did mostly covers with backing tracks. I'm going to try some other locals in ga or sc and I wanted to get some input on which option would be best for this type of competition?
My strongest talent is my singing.
Thank you James
