    Ok, so numbers may be a little off but:
    Oakland starting salary = 69k
    San Jose = 70k
    San Fran = 72k

    I'm currently a high school student and I occasionally play guitar for pocket change in the hallways. I might expand and play for pocketchange downtown in the summer, if possible, because its fun, and I'm actually good enough to get some money, too, I think (not to brag).

    In the future, I don't know what I want to do. I'd be ideally suited for playing music or writing, but that doesn't always work out. I havn't thought about it that much, really.

    But, I would like to play in bands in college for money and kicks. Could anyone give me any tips with that, or some good stories, or if its worth doing?

    I love the people that do this downtown (if it doesn't make my ears bleed).

    Did your brother ever get into the profession?

    oooh... I always give money to buskers! especially if they're playing a song with a political message I agree with!

    Usually it's ok if the instrument isn't home made or the guitar isn't terribly out of tune. heh. I'm sure you do a great job.
