Fred Mascherino and Terrible Things want to put out a guitar tabs book of their songs, and they're using Kickstarter to get it done. It's the first time the band has used the crowd-funded platform, where they're also offering Skype guitar lessons, digital downloads of tabs and tabs from Mascherino's solo project, The Color Fred.
Brooklyn-based guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Sonia Montez failed her first time around at a crowd-funding attempt. Her Kickstarter campaign only funded 25 percent and she had to walk away with no money at all. “It was rushed. I was kind of pushed into it. And I had a bad feeling from the beginning,” she says. “It was heart breaking.”
