Watch this BEFORE you buy in-ear monitors!

Sup amigos! πŸ™‚

In this video I go into some serious detail about In Ear Monitors.
A lot of young artists ask me about which to get and I’m so happy I finally have a video to direct them to.
Gotta love YouTube πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoy this one.
As usual, if you have any questions (or just wanna say how much you enjoyed the vid) leave a comment.

Bailando Tutorial

Well folks, we finally did it πŸ™‚

You guys (and gals) are always asking me to play this and play that…so here we go.
Here’s a tutorial, a really fun one (we had a blast recording it), about playing the guitar parts for Enrique Iglesias’ #1 hit “Bailando”.
I THINK you may know it πŸ˜‰

Not much to say other than enjoy the video and comment on it with other songs you’d like me to teach you.

Thanks again to Darya Sabooniha for letting me use her beautiful photos πŸ™‚

The Law Of Attraction

The Law Of Attraction!
Have you ever heard of it?
Have you ever used it?

In this sweet and short video I give you the gist of what it’s all about and how I’ve used it in my life.
We chat about my brother Yoni (Jonah) and his really interesting YouTube channel “Hebrew Nazarite” as well as a few other stories
from my past that connect me to “The Secret” (DVD in my case) and the Law Of Attraction.

I really hope you enjoy the vid.
Please feel free to Like, Subscribe and even use my Amazon links to buy shit and get some money in my pockets during this AMAZING Corona outbreak (I make some commission off of it πŸ˜‹)

On that note, because Texas became such a hot bed for COVID-19 in the last week or so, we had our private event (Smash Mouth gig) canceled…bummer 😷

Anyway, enjoy…spread the word…and I’ll see you on the road πŸ™‚

How To Stay Motivated During Lock-Down

If you follow me on social media, you know I’m CONSTANTLY creating music, coming up with ideas for YouTube and a million other things.

Many times, I get asked “How do you stay so motivated?”
So, I just made a video about it to explain my process.
It was a fun video to make and I hope you get some motivation from it πŸ™‚

Side note…we just passed the 500 Subs mark (woohoo!!!) and became official Amazon Affiliates.
So, if you’re ever wondering how to support me in a way where you don’t have to donate money directly, this is it πŸ™‚

When you click on any of the links in the description (of the video on youtube), even if you don’t buy THAT piece, but you continue on and buy something else,
something you were going to buy anyway…I get commission from Amazon.
Super simple!
So, go support your local musician (that’s me) by clicking on his links πŸ˜‰

Well..that’s it for now.
Really hoping we start performing again soon. I need some live music in my life πŸ™‚

Have a great day y’all.

Band Agreements 101

Annnnnd…we’re back!
Last week I took a break out of respect for the #BlackLivesMatter message and the protests.
I asked my followers and viewers to take a moment and instead of watching a new video by me, educate themselves, as I was trying to do,
in the matters brought up by the death of George Floyd (RIP).

But now, we’re back in business! Helping the next generation of musicians make the right choices so they can be…my competition haha.

In this is video I finally talk, in depth, about Band Agreements.
I even share this example with you from my past.
It’s a free PDF of my band agreement from back in the day with an awesome artists called “Shane” (not me).
Me and a few other amazing writers co-wrote 17 songs for Shane’s album, got management, signed the deal…
and then ended up nowhere…unfortunately.

But as I mentioned in the video, that…the eventual breaking up of that band/project was also discussed in the agreement, as you can see if you go through it.
But, I’m warning you…it’s LONG!
The contract, not the video πŸ™‚
Yours doesn’t have to be that long.

Oh…also…amazing bloopers!!!! haha

Anyway, I hope you learn some good stuff from this one.
If you wanna support and want some good knowledge as soon as it comes out Like the vid and Subscribe to the channel.
Please comment on the video and let me know how I can help you become a better artist and musician.

We’ve got a private Smash Mouth event next month (7/2020).
I can’t wait to see everyone and play live again!!!!!

Catchya on the road soon.

Wait…Don’t Sign That!

What’s up everyone??? πŸ™‚

It’s another week and therefor, there’s another helpful YouTube video up for all of you artists out there!

This video is all about Music Contracts Basics.
I mainly use Music Library contracts as an example because I’ve signed so many of them, but these terms are all gonna be in
99% of the music contracts you sign (including CD Baby, Distrokid etc.).

I wanted you to remember everything in it, so I made you this PDF to accompany it 😊

Please take everything with a grain of salt since I am NOT legally trained or licensed.
If you actually need legal advice, please contact an attorney.
With that being said, comments, likes and subs are always welcome 😊

I hope you enjoy the video and I hope to see you again on the road soon πŸ™‚
