I appreciate a good singer at a jam. It means I can concentrate on my playing while someone else carries the tune (in more ways than one). But I am finding that some singers do not understand the process of playing with a vocalist so I'm re-posting this here.
Singers new to jams need to understand:
1- Just because you learned the song in the key of Db doesn't mean we're going to play it in Db.
2- Asking five or six musicians to find the key for you based on something you hummed to us is not the way to endear yourself to us.
3- You may be a great karaoke singer on Thursday night but that doesn't mean we want to hear you on every song.
4- No, I don't know any Taylor Swift songs for your 6-year old to sing.
5- Stay with the beat!
Any other tips to singers?
