How Much Do Music Artists Earn Online?

How Much Do Music Artists Earn Online?.

I was surprised to learn that selling through Amazon earns artists so little.  I just signed up for a cdbaby.com account,  which I will use when items are available there and I want to support the artist.


Song of the week: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Top Gear (UK) has excellent music. I often hear cool clips of songs while watching. Normally, this is a problem, but not in this case. There’s a forum where people identify all music used on Top Gear, and it’s an incredible resource.

Case in point: at 29:07 in episode 1 (of season 16), a compelling song was playing in the background while Jeremy reviewed the Skoda Yeti. I just had to know what that song was. So, I jotted down the time on a postit. Later, I went to the forum post for this episode and found it was Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Barry Adamson, from his Oedipus Schmoedipus album. Listen for yourself to the right.


List: Top 100 Guitar Solos

A lot of good music in here. Definitely some missing entries, though. Lee Ritenour. Larry Carlton (his solo work). Al Di Meola. To name three.
