String Nuts & Saddles
The string nut and saddle play a vital role in your instruments feel and sound. They set the action (string height), string spacing, string radius, and also transfer the strings energy which all contribute to the instruments feel and sound. An improperly made string nut and or saddle are the number one cause of tuning instability, bad action and several other issues in stringed instruments.
He (Craig Buhler) told me it flows around the philosophy that “LESS is MORE!” and not complicating what should be simple. Something I have used from that day forward. It became a “Lotus Notes” catch phrase in my programming career, and soon was used in many Banking campaigns in Southern California, where banks were trying to win you over with all of the sorted crap they could muster and throw at you, to entice you to their ranks as a new customer.
So, how does your average musical genius go from penniless Pop Tart-eater to Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous? How do you move on up from mom’s garage to a deluxe apartment in the sky? What’s your first baby step on the Yellow Brick Road to fame and fortune? That’s simple…be committed!
I use priceline.com and hotwire.com to save money on the road. There are some inside tricks which you can google to find out. Here’s an example of what’s out there if you search around: http://www.gadling.com/2009/02/16/budget-travel-becoming-a-master-of-priceline-hotel-deals/. I also like betterbidding.com, a website which lists successful bids on priceline, by area, so you can get an idea of what hotels are actually going for on priceline. On average I pay about 50 a night (after tax) for a 2.5/3 star, and have gotten some awesome extended stay hotels for 35 a night, with a kitchen and full suite.
OurStage offers artists the free opportunity to have their music heard around the world and connections with major industry players. Think of the EPK as a different cut of your OurStage profile, a souped up resume of your artistry that includes all your tracks, videos, reviews, a calendar of your upcoming gigs, and more. Best of all, once you complete your OurStage profile, most of the work to create your EPK will already been done for you. No other site has come close to offering you so much for so little.
As you sit by the stack of holiday greeting cards waiting to be filled out and mailed, have you ever thought about including your music in them? This is a great way of advertising your music as well as making a great gift for those who have supported you throughout the year.
