Road Rat’s Tips

Want exclusive access to 20 years’ worth of professional knowledge?

In the real world, being able to play well doesn’t necessarily guarantee you’ll get work as a musician – in fact, playing well is only half the story. Road Rat’s Tips deals with the other half.

Trial and error is not the best way to learn your road skills and etiquette – that’s why
Road Rat’s Tips exists. Its aim is to keep you comfortable, safe, sane, reliable and therefore employed as you go about your professional business.

Giving your best possible performance must take precedence over everything.
Road Rat’s Tips gives you the tools to make sure it happens every time.
An instantly engaging read, Road Rat's Tips has a clear layout brim-full of coherent advice and is wonderfully funny, laced with much anecdotal evidence.

I particularly liked the etiquette tips – and wish that more of the musicians I work with would learn them!
