Since I've lost my job, I have been considering becoming a traveling musician. I'm getting pretty good at playing guitar. Kinda feel like I'd miss coding though. What y'all think?

    do freelancing on the side. Coding is a universal skill. Always be in touch with it

    it might be difficult if you drive away from it completely, to catch on again or to remember it, it's not quite as riding a bike, people around me that abandoned programming, have had to go great lengths to catch on again and remember things, just as the above comment says, do something atleast as a mind-jog weekly or as a freelance job.

    lol I toured for a couple years (I've played guitar for 16 years)

    its an awful lifestyle. you're basically homeless.

    now I just teach guitar on the side and it pays pretty well if you have the patience and personality. but you need to know your shit to teach.

    @zvyn I definitely had to face some hard truths about music and what it actually meant to me. 100% happy I stopped trying to pursue that dream. but it basically killed my spirit on its' own.
