SOME EXCELLENT BUSINESS ADVISE FRO THE PRO AND SEMI PRO FOLK ARTIST GO HERE


We all need a bit of help from time to time, be it finding a decent guitar coach, a refresher Course on something, or simply some fresh ideas on how to perk up our performances or Web Sites.

On this page you’ll find a whole range of reference material, most of it for “FREE DOWNLOAD”.  Everything from a basic Chord Dictionary (personally I don’t know who needs more than 100 Chords, but then I’m a Masher) to Joke Books.

You’ll also find a fairly extensive LINKS section to Web Sites that will give you extra help, or simply places to dump your music or develop a fan base.  

It’s all here, so enjoy exploring what’s on offer.     


MAKING YOUR MUSICAL FOOTPRINT

THE MASHERS have discovered quite a bit over the past four or five years, about using social Networking, playing in Folk Clubs and Open Mics, and finding those hard to get Gigs. We share it all in our little manual (pdf) “Making Your Musical Footprint”

It’s for beginners, or those seeking to Branch out beyond the weekly Open Mic.  However, I think from time to time, it’s useful to draw up the old check list and making sure we’re getting the basics right - so there might be something for everyone.

It’s not definitive, it’s not suppose to be a template to Stardom, it’s a set of guides and ideas that might just work for you.

TEN TIPS TO IMPROVE GUITAR PLAYING

Ten Tips to help you improve your Guitar playing.  They come from Jamie at “The Principles” which is an on line resource for Guitarists.
