Just checked the folk/acoustic section and halfway down someone got nailed with a 2 star rating. It only had one purchase with one rating. I have a feeling maybe customer thought he was giving 4 stars and and clicked the 4th star from right thinking it meant 4. Now sales will probably be affected. If the customer listened and the reviewer made sure the files matched the preview file exactly there is really no reason for a low rating..

I think your link is to a google or youtube log in page. Therefor anyone clicking your link that’s already signed in will see their own videos and think its their music your talking about.

I agree, we work way too hard on our music to have one bad rating which may even be a mistake on the customers part ruin everything. When I shop on sites and see a low rating on something I am instantly turned off from product.

Customers hear exactly what they are getting, this is a totally pointless system. If the song is good for A.J. it will get sales which looks better to customer then a star rating.

Travis Barker is the Tommy Lee of the newer generation(Thats not a bad thing). Good solid drummer for sure with great time and feel but as stated there are so much more happening drummers out there. I was way more impressed with the street drummers playing buckets to be honest.

Dennis Chambers has always been a favorite of mine.

Congrats on this awesome achievement Tim. I know he would never make a congrats to himself thread but he deserves this acknowledgment, a true motivator for all of us. Congrats to Soundroll as well with a combined 20,000 plus sales count with both of his accounts.

“Upbeat Ukulele” has been my little hit. Won’t post link because that will be too much over the line of shameless self promotion.

I have learned that simple and kind of repetitive but not boring can be key. People need something that fits good, can keep the same theme, vibe, and feeling throughout. If your song changes to much or goes from happy to sad I think it can hurt sales, unless its a dramatic work and a buyer needs up and downs.

And like Scott wrote, check on top seller list and top authors and sort by sales. It will tell you everything.

I personally don’t find watermarking a issue, but being able to track where my music is sounds pretty cool.
