Going on tour soon but don’t know how to get the word out? Here’s a list of amazing strategies to put your band on the map and make your travels count!

You know that we humans rely on each other. And I think this is especially true of the music community. DIY musicians, whether part-time or full-time, are generally a welcoming and helpful bunch of people. In my experience, they’re encouraging, motivating, and want to see you succeed. That’s why it’s a great idea to connect with them in Facebook groups or subReddits.

Take a big task — like building a music website — and break it into steps. What part of that process can you do right now with the time you have? Then tomorrow, you can do another step in that process. If you only have 15 minutes to do something, get something done in that 15 minutes. Then you can go to bed knowing you pushed your music career a little further forward.

Producers today make as many compositional decisions as entire songwriting teams of yore. How does this affect publishing? Hint: it could use a rethink.

The Guild Cinema has a variety of movies to choose from, especially cool musical documentaries like A Band Called Death and Heart of a Dog. If you are a movie aficionado, try this place first before you try the bigger chains. You’ll be surprised at how low key and enjoyable this locally owned theater is! And don’t forget the popcorn seasoning.

+ Learning to record and mix at home? Soundfly’s intermediate and advanced mixing courses combine video content with 1:1 coaching from a pro engineer, so you can improve your skills and get critical feedback on your work. Or, work with a Mentor on your mixes in a custom month-long session.

Capital gains, meanwhile, is the profit made from the sale of a property or investment. It typically applies to things like selling real estate or stocks, and is taxed at a lower rate of 20%, so long as the seller owned the asset for more than a year (long-term capital gains).

This opens the doors for new subgenres, new communities, new sounds, and new movements to find their way around the world into the ears of new subscribers and listeners. It is time to shed our old assumptions of how things work and start taking advantage of how you work.

Lastly, we have the lowest level of hierarchical importance. This would be all of the notes in Western harmony that are not contained within the C major scale, like D♭, E♭, A♭, and B♭.

Well, you can kiss that source of tour stress goodbye! House shows are more favorable to touring musicians because the hours end up being a lot more friendly and respectful. Since most concert venues and clubs make money serving alcohol, it’s in their best interest to keep the crowds inside their doors for as long as possible. But since most houses have people living in them, shows tend to start around sundown and wrap up just a couple hours later.

If you plan far enough ahead, however, you can possibly avoid this issue. Sit down with your accountant before you file and tell them you’re planning on buying a house. You may decide together to take fewer deductions than you’re actually due in order to make your returns more palatable to a bank. Or they may have other ideas to help you out. Either way, it’s worth your time to have a conversation about your status.

“Call Out My Name”: Hey-hey, look, it’s another compound meter, with an ultra-slow 45 BPM tempo. By comparison, the slowest tempo we reached in last year’s Chartmania was 57 BPM — also a compound meter. The form here is why they made up the word “formulaic.” Though perhaps the absence of any tricks lays a foundation for Abel Tesfaye to take more liberties with his phrasing, starting his melodies first where you’d expect them, later well before the bar lines dictate, and then after the bar lines for a stumbling, dizzying effect. Watch out in the outro for the strong G♭ in the bass making a good argument for a G♭6 chord. Then again, it may be a first inversion E♭.
