I’m writing a book about women’s music. I want to be disciplined about writing it but it’s hard when I spend several hours a week on this blog so I’m taking a short hiatus in March. I’ll be back in April with more tour stories, guitar tips and whatever I feel like blabbing about. Meanwhile, settle in with a large cup of coffee and check out my extensive blog archives. Here are some links to get you started. Click on the topic to get to the articles.
Tips for guitar players and other musicians. Read about everything from free chord sites to taking care of your instrument in winter to flying with guitars.
Stories from the road. I’ve got stories from my 20 plus years of touring. Read about smoking speakers, haunted housing and my never ending search for good road food.
Women’s music. Read about where your favorite women’s music performers are today, about my crush on Meg Christian and my rant about the lack of women at mainstream festivals. Yes, I get a little bitchy. I know, you love that.
Folk music and music in general. Read about my favorite music movies and a profile of folk trio Girlyman.
Songwriting. Learn some tips about winning a song contest and how to write a funny song. Always remember to put the cat barf imitation after the chorus.
Music business. Read about becoming a guitar teacher, writing a bio for a musician, getting press for musicians and more.
That’s it for now. Remember, I’ll be back in April. Don’t forget me while I’m gone! (Why do I feel like I’m signing your yearbook?)
