You know "that" book on busking that that Australian guy sells online for $47?

It's that dude who runs Buskerworld dot com, I think his name is a secret. And the book is called The Busker's Bible.

It's $47 online I'd have to have a friend order it for me, i Hope it's not a big scam.

I'm thinking he may actually be Alan Greenspan.

That's why I'm wondering if anyone's bought the book and what they think of it.

I collated some advice from various threads here over the years some time ago and put it up here. No-ones ever been interested in it which is fine, you can download it for free if you want.

Thanks you're golden!

Got it downloaded, on my computer so the 'net can crash now....

I'm so divided .... $47 is a week's pay for me right now, but at the same time it's a bad-day "hat" for a decent busker, and the propaganda about this guy's book is that it's not just musical etc skill it's little nuances.

I'm not even sure if the Aussie's book can be gotten in the US, it's not on Amazon. I have a few friends who could order it for me on Amazon if it were.

Thanks!

There will be nothing of real value in there that isnt in Martin's post or in the extensive library on this site. Save your money and get to a pitch... Just don't come to mine... Just kidding ... But seriously don't....
