    This guy just explained the entire music industry and pretty much every other industry in the entire world. Shit sucks today. SO many jobs are gone, it's ridiculous.

    Great video though but it's discouraging as well lol.

    @Fade @2GooD Productions the business will only continue to work for those who got rich and/or wealthy in the old media era while for everyone else it is a sinking ship, people have been sold dreams and the money is in selling the clueless every DAW, etc. under the sun with the idea that more software, etc. will make anyone a good to great producer, rapper, etc. but we never tell people that music is good for sustaining a sound mind with regards to it washing away the dust of everyday life (Art Blakey) and money from it is for a select few.

    I watched an interview this guy(Rick Beato) had with Steve Vai, Steve mentioned setting up your own publishing company to protect yourself. Best advice Ive seen in ages. I will post the video in its own thread.

    @2GooD Productions regarding publishing are any of the PROs really for the artists as I've read conflicting reports to the contrary in various places

    In the world we find ourselves in today, everybody is out for the quick easy buck. Look after your interests and protect yourself and your intellectual property. Then from that foundation you can dip your feet into the shark pool and find out for yourself, happy in the knowledge, you have protected yourself from being used and discarded.
