Alisha Sabin will be writing articles as an author on Live Musician Central.
Hi all of you live musician’s out there on the world wide web. I’m very excited today to introduce a new author on Live Musician Central. Alisha Sabin will be writing a series of articles chronicling her experience playing in a live band. Alisha has been singing in her very first live rock band and it just happens to be my band Bonne Nuit. So be sure to watch Live Musician Central to read about Alisha’s fascinating journey taking her from singing into her hairbrush in front of her bedroom mirror to taking the stage for a live performance with a real rock band.
Live Musician Central celebrates it’s second anniversary. Here are some statistics from our first two years.
Hey everyone, it’s been 2 years since Live Musician Central went online. I’ve been posting information to help you improve your live band for two solid years and Live Musician Central has gotten a very good response. We’ve had 86,945 page views and have been averaging around 5,000 visits per month. That’s pretty good traffic for a non-commercial Blog/Website.
This is a list of the top content on Live Musician Central for the year of 2009.
Well we’ve made it through another year and I hope all you live band musicians out there have had a good one. I know it’s been an interesting year for me. I’ve played some great gigs and I’ve had my share of problems in my live bands this year. All in all I can’t say it was the best year of my career as a live musician but it hasn’t been terrible by any means. Probably the greatest thing I did this year was start a live band project with my three oldest sons. Stay tuned and watch for my sons and I to be playing a gig very soon.
I figured to celebrate the end of 2009 here on Live Musician Central I would post up a list of the most viewed content over the year. It’s no surprise that my custom programmed Fender Cyber-Twin SE preset patches take the top honors. I’ve been programming my own effect racks for almost 20 years and I used that experience while programming my Fender Cyber-Twin SE amplifier. It stands to reason that every post associated with my Cyber-Twin SE amplifier downloads would be in the top viewed categories as well. So I decided to include the Amplifier Preset Downloads page at the top of the list and fill out the rest of the list with other topics that were the most popular but not related directly to the Cyber-Twin SE preset patches.
The following list is the top viewed content on Live Musician Central for the year of 2009. I’m glad that so many people have visited and I hope that you’ve all found something useful here on Live Musician Central. Here’s to a fantastic and excellent 2010!
Live Musician Central is re-launched with a completely new site design and layout.
Welcome to the new Live Musician Central! I’m sure you’re noticing some changes to the site. If this is your first visit to Live Musician Central, the site used to look a lot different than it does today. Either way, if you play in a live band you’ll still find all the excellent resources and product reviews that Live Musician Central has become famous for. You’ll also get to read about my experiences playing in live bands for the last 28 years.
Over the next few days I will continue to make some changes to the site. I’m hoping to make it easier to read as well as easier to navigate. Some of the changes are purely cosmetic and some improve the overall functionality of Live Musician Central. There will be a few things that may not work correctly and possibly a broken link here and there. Let me know if you run across anything funky and I’ll try to get it fixed as quickly as possible.
I hope you enjoy Live Musician Central and that you stop by regularly to check out what’s happening. If there are any topics you’d like to see covered, leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do. -Matt-
Live Musician Central author, Matt Rushton, reflects on the one year anniversary of this Blog.
This week marks the one year anniversary of Live Musician Central going live online. It’s been a really fun year writing and producing Live Musician Central and I’ve learned more about Blogging and web development than ever imagined that I would. I’m giving myself a pat on the back here because the only outside help I’ve had is from friends and family who have done some graphics work for me. It’s been very challenging at times trying to get things to work the way I want them to on the site and I think Live Musician Central is improving all the time.
