Use Open Mics To Test New Songs

Open mics are a great way to test out new material. They provide a friendly, supportive atmosphere that allows you to 'go crazy' and try tunes that you might not feel comfortable trying at a 'paid' gig.

Before you play the new song, tell the audience what you're doing. Ask them for their feedback. Something like, 'This is a new tune for me. I'm thinking about adding it to my play-list. I'd like to know if you think it's a 'keeper.'

Not only will you get great feedback, but this tactic will get people to pay attention to your performance, and that's never a bad thing.
