Tax Gab & Gear Gab – GigGab 91

guitar-paperwork-square As all working musicians know, those fun New Year’s Eve gigs re followed-up by a hangover of tax season. But, as with all hangovers, if you properly prepare for it you can limit the pain. For this, your two Weekend Warriors talk through their strategies of keeping the books straight and simple and also share some of their tax tips, too. Paul and Dave aren’t accountants, of course, but they can at least help you know what questions to ask when you visit your tax professional.

Then, because there’s no better way to flush the bad taste of taxes out, it’s time for Gear Gab! Dave and Paul both talk about the benefits and curses involved with “electrifying” their preferred acoustic instruments. Dave has reviewed a couple of different Yamaha electronic kits, and Paul talks through his favorite (and NOT favorite) acoustic guitar pickup options. Finally, Dave talks about his new ears… that Jerry Harvey sent him. All this and more… on GigGab!
