The Painfully Obvious:
Go to the Library
It’s free, usually few distractions, books, magazines, documents, free Internet access, copy machines
Go to a bookstore
In addition to books, you will find magazines about song writing, piano, opera, rhythm and blues, rock, fingerstyle guitar, classical guitar, drums, classical piano, bass guitar, recording, technology, marketing, sales, website design, and more. Browse, sit and read for free.
The world’s largest library, open 24/7
Many good audio equipment retailers, books, services, etc. are available. For my own peace of mind, I have included only the resources I have personally used. I am not professionally connected with any of these resources and receive no perks from recommending them.
