TOM'S DISTORTION BLOG - June 1, 2016
The music industry is not dead and you can still make money. And here is why:
Never stop. Write every day. Perform anywhere you can. Never stop.

This article serves three purposes.
First, it announces me to the AmpSlam community as some to come to for help using the site.
Second, it's my first post, so it's a bit of a test.
Third, it lets you know about a project on which Thomas (AmpSlam CEO) and I work. The project is called the Music Manumit Lawcast. It's a monthly show on YouTube and at Music Manumit that discusses various legal issues that may be of interest to independent musicians. We try to be upfront each month about whether the topic is introductory (likely to be useful to musicians) or if it is designed for attorneys. So far, we've discussed the CC BY license. Don't know what CC BY is? Great! Listen to the show!
Our next show is on band agreements, so if you are thinking about starting a band or are in a band and don't currently have an agreement, definitely check out that show. We'll record live on YouTube on July 28. Also, make sure you get us questions before the show so we can try to answer them in generalities.
Remember, the Music Manumit Lawcast is never legal advice. If you need legal advice, please speak with a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction. If you happen to be in Maryland, check out http://www.marylandmusiclawyer.com/.
