When you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose.
After three chapters of education you’re now finally ready to get started. But it’s too early to start the songwriting process yet, as you probably still miss one key element that will be required on your road to success, and that’s your own uniqueness.
You will have to become UNIQUE before you can become RELEVANT by writing music that will be REVOLUTIONARY.
But be careful – you must have understood the message(s) of the previous chapters in order to fully understand what needs to be done here. If your brainwash is not yet complete, then return to the previous chapters please.
Do not start reading this chapter unless you have read the first three chapters of this manual!
In this chapter you will learn about setting up your project*, selecting a genre and / or subgenre, defining your own style and sound, choosing a name and creating a logo, plus a whole lot of other things.
This chapter is about discovering and / or designing your own IDENTITY.
Never underestimate the importance of defining your own, unique SOUND and STYLE.
*) From now on you (as a solo artist) or your band will be called a “project”, which will make things easier as I won’t have to write “you or your band…” all of the time.
In the end your project consists of your name and your identity, as well as of the people involved, your records, your website, your merchandise, your live shows, and everything else. Think of it as something like a small business, because that’s what it will be.
