More & more forwards! You can do it too

Post by sherrylynnlee » Fri Jul 19, 2019 3:19 pm

This year, I've been writing a lot of instrumentals and songs for TAXI listings specifically and I'm seeing increasingly more forwards than returns. In the beginning, I made a lot of common noob mistakes and was very frustrated with TAXI, but I figured out what I was doing wrong.
Here's 7 reasons why I wasn't getting forwards before, and what I do differently now: https://sherrylynnlee.com/2019/07/19/7- ... s-by-taxi/

Hi Sherry,

You hit the nail on the head!!!
You're article is 100% correct.

I'm not sure why it takes members so long to realize these things...
It probably took me a long time too..... I can't remember! Ha

Also, people need to realize.... this is not the minor leagues....
This is the BIG TIME... you are going against the best of the best....
So you need to be producing music that can stand right up against the best out there.

Great article and advice!

My 2 cents,
Tim

I read your article that was posted in the Taxi FB group. I thought it was extremely helpful -- especially the before and after!

Thanks!
