Yes the people are wonderful…in fact, that is a necessary part of the whole SL music experience. Go to a live concert right in your own living room? Yes you can. I am a business owner, sometimes companion, friend, and other things on Second Life, but after all, it is the music experience that keeps me logging in again and again.

Musicians pay a huge price to perform in world. They work for tips only, no tickets necessary. And with the low Linden to Dollar ratio, they really do work for peanuts…make that Less than peanuts.

Yet were it not for these fearless few who sing and play their souls out for us, I would never have lasted so long in this realm. It is more than soothing and uplifting. It is knowing you are there, with the performers and audience in some way, all experiencing the same live performance at once.

We don’t deserve such joy. Yet we embrace it happily, and sometimes take it for granted. Let us appreciate these selfless SL musicians and tip them heartily whenever we enjoy a performance. Go often, and be entertained…soothed….even lifted up, with our SL live musicians.
