This book by Nicholas Veinoglou is a real world look on how to navigate the modern music industry. Nicholas draws from his experience in Los Angeles as a guitarist, performer & session musician to explain what to do (and what not to do).
At 48 pages, Nicholas shares as honestly and concisely almost all of the most important things he’s learned from working in the industry. You’ll find out his thoughts on networking, music school, auditioning, touring, gear, session musicians tips & even some practical music business stuff (invoicing, taxes, income diversification).
I generally enjoyed reading his take on things especially the way he approaches different musical opportunities. Sometimes the mindset stuff is what makes a huge difference. The most valuable aspect of this eBook is how honest he is about what he’s learned. This isn’t some dry academic textbook for building a music career. It is a professional musician sharing his best insights from embarking on this particular career path.
If you’re a fan of what Nicholas has been doing (and is doing), this eBook can help you discover behind the scenes of what makes him tick (and thrive) in the music industry. There’s a lot of stuff that you don’t see via just following someone on social media.
In conclusion, if you want to build a career as a session musician or live performer, this eBook is a valuable guide.
Pros: Real world tips from a successful working musician who is active in the modern music industry.
Cons: Some people might find this eBook short.
TLDR: Recommended for guitarists who want to build a successful performing career.

I cannot guarantee a review for every submission & if I’m not too into it, I may opt not to review it. I mean, it’s better to get a good review that for me to write a bad review just because it’s not a match for the kind of stuff I dig right? :p
