Vinland Most lucrative songs for busking? (62* d) RE: Most lucrative songs for busking? 15 May 03

Bring the fiddle along and play simple beautiful pieces. I'm with Alanabit,save your voice and sing only when you know you have a listening audience.

I've busked a lot of places around the world and found that simple beautiful melodies seem to work well - pieces like Greensleeves, Fanny Power, Amazing Grace,Summertime and Spanish Romance - but only if they're played well. Variety is nice however - try mixing instrumentals and songs, and different styles. Above all, don't bore yourself .. have fun.

Play and sing what you love - and (hopefully) the money will follow...
