When there is musical homework to be done, I confess it is never too much like work for me. I enjoy learning songs for weddings that are booked for the band. Even if they are not to my personal taste, and I would rather be playing my own thing; I think to myself, would I swap this for an office job? No. Never. So I try not to complain. I love any work that involves music.
And so now, I had better get back to it! I have a three gig weekend ahead. What fun!
