Important Lessons For A Soft Rock Star From A Screamo Guitar Player

I spoke at a screamo music festival yesterday and here is just some of what I learned about music making from one guitar player there.  I wrote these lessons down and will afix them to my bathroom mirror at home for review every morning.

1) Play the guitar behind your head.
