With winter approaching, gigging friends of mine getting COVID and one dying, sometimes I feel lucky to be unemployed.
Back in 1985 we targeted the retirement market here in Florida, and until COVID it was steady, paid decent (for a musician), had good hours, and an appreciative audience. Now my audience is in the so-called vulnerable group, they cancelled their gigs, I returned their deposits, and they will not reschedule until they feel safe.
So I'm working harder at my safety net, writing style e-disks and fake e-disks for Band-in-a-Box. Writing software is like writing a book (I'm sure Craig understands this) it takes months and months of creation and revision to end up with something you are satisfied with and you thin provides good value for the price you will charge.
I figure by late-winter I might have enough to release enough to the public. The problem is I sell these products to musicians and many of them are also unemployed -- but then others have day jobs and play music for fun.
Wish me luck
