Beatnik Turtle's Indie Band Survival Guide
Beatnik Turtle is not a plethora of propinquitous popinjays trying to scam some extra page views with a free ebook, but a very hard working and pleasantly prolific group with a long history, deep musical experience and an engaging sense of humor.
When not looking for them on their own website, the IndieGuide website, or their Song of the Day they can be found at YouTube, facebook, Reverb Nation, Bebo, MySpace, iLike, Last.fm, Amazon, Rhapsody, CDbaby, and iTunes. And they've always had a pretty cool sharing policy, supporting CreativeCommons before it was cool.
This ebook is packed with great stuff to think about and useful tips for getting things done. It even includes an online Book Extras with articles and links specific to supporting the book.
Indie Band Survival Guide, and its companion The DIY Music Manual is also available in hardcopy.
