From greats like Patti Smith and Cyndi Lauper to TV's Miley Cyrus ("Hannah Montana") and Demi Lovato, girls want to rock. They want to start bands, write songs, get up on stage, and kick out the jams. Here's the book to teach them how. Written by an obsessive music lover who's spent her life playing, performing, publicizing, and writing about rock 'n' roll, "The Girl's Guide to Rocking" is a hip, inspirational guide for rad girls who want to make their rock dreams come true. It's everything a rocking girl needs to know: how to find your instrument - and if your hands are too small for the bass, try the guitar; how to get your band together - ask everyone you know, put up flyers, check the local music schools; temperamental old-school tube amps vs. uncool but supersmart digital amps; giving your band the right name, plus a cautionary glossary of overused words (Wolf, Star, Crystal, Earth, etc.) ; the freedom of going solo, and how to handle performing alone in the spotlight; songwriting tips, with eight prompts to get the lyrics flowing; the ins and outs of recording, whether at home or in a studio; and, taking care of business - publicizing your band, making money on T-shirts, legalese and the creative personality, your MySpace page, and the four signs that say 'time to hire a manager' - in other words, you've arrived.
