At least I did it! Even if I haven’t been producing new stuff since last august (and haven’t been posting almost anything in the forums…), I did some promotion on YouTube and soundcloud and the money streams slow but constantly…
Now heading for the Black Paw!
all guitars you hear in this video are made with it:

SoundMaze saidSomething I stumbled upon today that could be considered in topic: http://www.ted.com/talks/robert_gupta_between_music_and_medicine.html http://blog.ted.com/2012/10/02/music-the-mind-and-medicine-a-qa-with-robert-gupta/
Thanks for your kind words Pietro.
DutovLoppa saidHold on, man. And involve your son in music, I bet it would be healthy and therapeutic for both of you.
I discovered an advantage anticipated a few months ago when my third son was diagnosed with autism. A part of my life has collapsed. I quit my job to take care of my son and start an incredible journey in the strange world of autism. A long journey, very long journey. I will travel all my life long. Making music saved me. When i compose i’m out of the world for few minutes. So precious minutes.
A big hug from Italy,
I’ve left completely the production activity here on AJ, and tried in the last 5 months to increase sales only with soundcloud and youtube promotion. The result? 4 sales in 5 months (< than 1 sale a month), when in previous months I had an average of 7/8 sales per month.
My conclusion: youtube and soundcloud promotion is almost useless, unless you keep uploading on a regular basis.
I started a couple of weeks ago posting my songs to youtube and soundcloud, having a moderate increase in sales. It might be a slow process, but surely worth trying.
