How I Use Tom’s Live Music Method for a Long Solo Show: Song Arrangement, Talking to the Audience, Results (Part 3)

There are several ways you can start working on your song arrangements yourself. You can get great ideas from any of Tom’s videos, and of course probably the best source for that inspiration is right here, Backstage!
