I'm a singer/songwriter with songs on CD Baby and other major sites. My web site is http://jimredgewell.com
Music is a labour of love. It gives me some satisfaction, but I want more.
To be a successful songwriter and guitarist.
Get rid of all the idiots.
Joe Pass, Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson.
Nothing! It has become a habbit.
I just want people to like it.
To be successful you have to be brilliant at all of the following, singing, songwriting, and performing. You also have to look amazing and have a bubbly personality. In other words "Jack of all trades". We all know that its an impossible task. It would be better if the songwriters did the writing and allow the performers to concentrate on performing. It wouldn't be the end of the singer/songwriter, just better music.
Drooble is the best web site for musicians.
The music business.
Be extreemly lucky.
