Since I've been getting many requests for advice on how to improve ReverbNation rankings, I've decided to make some tutorial videos. My first piece advice to RN users would be to always fan people back not matter what. My first rule now is the same thing Patrick Swayze told his bouncers in the movie "Roadhouse". Be nice. You are building relationships with people and that is what is important. Be positive and positive people with seek you out. It's the rule of the universe. Believe me. If you are negative, negative people will seek you out. Misery loves company.
All most done a new track. Fine tuning a mixdown of "Seldom Seen".
Taking a break from recording "Seldom Seen". Playing around with the production using Studio One and having fun. I love that program.
I started with ReverbNation in August of this year. So far I've made it to #3 in the US and I've been ranked in the top 10 in the world for Alternative music. I've also been in the top 300 for all genres. There have been many things going on behind the scenes I think some folks would find extremely interesting. I'll be going into more detail at the end of the year. Might make a quick video of my online experiences with RN, Facebook, and Twitter. Some weird, wild and wonderful stuff has happened to me this year.
Working on a live video of my Christmas song "Can't Wait to Celebrate".

Been busy laying down some new tracks this past week. I'll be doing more of the same this week. Can't find the lyrics to one song so I'm rewriting the verses. As long as the hook stays with me it's ok. I've had the hook for years.
Recording new tracks this week.
