Guitar Great Hangout: May 7

mikeuniverse2005_1Join guitar virtuosos Carl VerheyenGretchen MennNeil ZazaJon Finn,Rob BalducciMike Martin and Chris Green will talk all things guitar on a Live From Music City Google+ hangout at this page May 7, 2013 from 7pm-8:30pm CST. They’ll cover everything from songwriting, marketing and touring to developing a fan base. And probably some stuff about being a guitarist too! But this seems like a great opportunity to tap into the collective knowledge of a bunch of talented folks who do this stuff for a living, and have much to share about the non-musical aspects of being a serious musician.

Tweet @LFMCRadio to ask your questions and listen to some of music’s most prolific instrumentalists tell you how to beat the challenges of the music industry. Seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun! I’ll be checking it out. You should too!
