The Music Royalty Breakdown

Every musician, independent or not, should understand music royalties. Sadly, most don't. So I'm going to break it down so that you can understand how they effect you, regardless of where you are in your music career.

That's why if you look at the songwriting credits for the Beatles' songs, you'll rarely see Ringo or Harrison's names pop up. But if you're a drummer, bassist, or rhythm guitarist, you shouldn't give up and quit.
