Song Swap

Very few of us will ever have one of our original songs 'covered' by anyone. It's a shame, because hearing somebody else's spin on your tune can be very cool indeed!

Why not trade songs with a friend? You learn their song and they learn yours.

Go to an open mic and play the songs 'live.' Bring friends that are familiar with your song.

It's a lot of fun. Try it this week!

Open With A Cover

Whether you're playing out at an open mic or at a paid gig, always open with a cover song.

Choose a song that really showcases your talents.

People are judging you. If you play something that they know, and you do a 'killer' version of it, you'll win their attention and their hearts.

You don't have to, 'sound like the record.' People love it when you take a popular song and 'make it your own.'
