Why I failed in the music business and how not to follow my footsteps

Hi All,

Just finished reading a great book full of words of wisdom on the music industry. If you plan to do music as a job you MUST READ THIS FIRST. Hear it from a guy who has been there and done that!

This is a great resource with chapters of advice on what to avoid doing in the industry; it will get you on the right track!

Here's the site: whyifailed.com

Happy reading,

Dave

sounds good Dave. "The futre of music" is another great industry book worth reading!

Since we are talking about books here there's a few I want to mention.

1.Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill
-this is awesome to achieve whatever you want to achieve and it makes you believe that nothing is impossible

2.How to improvise by Hal Crook
-this one has everything to do with with playing, the instrument doesn't really matter. It's got really many different aspects about improvising and good exercises

David Kusek. Its pretty amazing when you read this book to consider when it was written. It pretty much prophesized what has happened in the music industry in regards to downloading and the fall of the record label. Great read!

Here is a link for you:
