    You might want to start with Christine Lavin's Helpful Tips For the Performing Songwriter and Tim Sweeny's Free Advice for Musicians. Then visit Harmony Central's Recording Pages, followed by a read of Micah Enber's Getting Heard On The Radio.
    Remember to email the Webmaster at acousticmusic.net to get your web site added to the Artists and Recordings pages.
    Peruse the Recording Labels for assistance in production and distribution. Or, if you want to start your own label (per Tim Sweeny's advice) you can use the Dealers links for contacts to set up your own distribution.
    Looking for places to perform? Live Music lists venues in Southern California -- The Dirty Linen Gig Guide covers the whole country and then some. Don't forget that many of the Organizations host concerts.
    Reading the Magazines and Reference materials will give you something to talk about while you tune.
    Some of the Radio programs also have live guests, especially Folkscene with Howard and Roz Larman and E Town with Nick and Helen Forster. (If you're already on Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and reading this, please email the Webmaster and let me know.)
    If you need help getting booked, you might want to consider Booking Agencies.
    And do check the Instruments -- Information, Instruments -- Manufacturers and Instruments -- Accessories before heading out to the Music Shops.
