I have a gig next weekend that requires an hour of original music. Today, I spent some time working on my setlist. It wasn’t that long ago that this particular setlist would have been really difficult to make because of a lack of material. At this point the setlist is really difficult to make because I have so many songs from which to pick. I guess it is a good problem to have. It’s hard to pick favorites.
I only have an hour to connect with this audience, most of which won’t know my material at all. Should I pick my “best” songs? I never liked greatest hits albums. I could wemble on and on for 56 minutes about the difficulty of picking songs and then wrap it all up with some Chicken Skin Shake. Yes, that sounds like something I would do.
