These really are helpful links Bob. Where were you when I was trying to make it full-time as a musician?

I'm always looking for stuff like this to pass on to our studio clients who are on their way out into the market with their music for the first time.

I'll certainly recommend your site as one of the first stops for them to make (and bookmark).
