Maybe I Should Listen to Myself

So while diging through some old files on one of my USBs I found this little beauty from a couple of years ago. What an insightful 14 year old I was.

Steps to Success 

1. Form band.
2. Rehearse, Rehearse, Rehearse
3. Start a youtube account and put up some covers. Get recognition and take constructive criticism.
4. Write our own songs, record them, put them on youtube, gain constructive criticism. Also use the youtube account to do some vlogging with the band to get in touch with the people who are watching.
5. Book a gig at a local venue, doesn't have to be long or pay well.
6. Get used to performing, writing good songs and create a fan base.
7. Record an EP, sell at gigs, if you have enough money put it on Itunes - announce this on your youtube account and at your gigs.  
8. Set up you own website or Myspace account - direct as much traffic as you can to it by either putting a link to it on your youtube videos or putting it on flyers when advertising gigs. Put up some of your songs and videos, create a blog, put up some info and photos ect.
9. Rehearse, perform, upload, vlog. No particular order, but always, always rehearse. 
10. Put together a press pack and send it off to radio stations or record labels.
11. Put together an album and try to get it into CD store and sell them at your gigs.
12. Don't forget your youtube account, this is where many of your first fans came from, keep uploading videos, vlogs and even covers of other songs.  

1. Write song.
2.Record/film song
3.Post on youtube and wait for feed back.

I thought it was quite useful, but I'm not to sure about the assumed YouTube success, but hey, we'll never know these things unless we try them

How come when guitarists are 14 and live here in Aus, they always have the same ideas on how to succeed?

It must be something in the water :)

And that's always a good step to have.
