In other words, while most of us believe we really want a major label deal and the instant riches and fame that flow from that, veterans of the industry seem to think otherwise. Why?
Here are two articles that you should read to understand the economics of the deal. Once you understand this, then step back and ask why you really want to be in that business if this is the probable outcome. Meanwhile, I'll go back to making my homebrew videos. I never expect any measure of real success except insofar as I still enjoy the heck out of it.
Here are some new homebrew videos. The Taking My Time video is a screen capture from the tutorial I wrote on this blog for 3D band sequencers. Remember, you can take Jing and a cheap video editor and put something up fast with X3D. You don't have to sell your souls to practice your art at levels the Beatles couldn't without spending a lot of money. Things are better. Enjoy!
