    Special thanks to Ed Grauer and Peter Nashel, who let my Wesleyan class in on the business side of songwriting – publishing, copyright, sample clearance, mechanicals, synch…the critical stuff that turns passion into a living.

    Special Thanks: Rob Thomas

    By Mike | March 26, 2014

    “Three things in music that will never go out of style: the song; the song; and the song.”

    Special thanks to my guest speaker, Rob Thomas, who took time out to come to NYU and talk to the students about how he approaches songwriting, collaboration and “the beast” that is the industry.

    April Issue of Guitar World: Mike Errico on Percussive Acoustic Guitar Playing

    By Mike | March 10, 2014

    In the April, 2014 issue of Guitar World, I explain my percussive acoustic guitar playing techniques and how they can inspire songwriting.

    The article has transcriptions of the grooves for “Springtime” and “1000 Miles,” and the web site features bonus video content. I had a great time writing it and filming with the GW crew.

    It’s on newsstands now, or available at the Guitar World Online Store.

    “Beat It: A Guide to the Inspired Techniques of Percussive Acoustic Guitar Playing”
