ReverbNation is a wonderful site for discovering new music, and helping to promote bands in which you are interested. This is a Two Minute Tutorial explaining how to sign up to the service as a fan.

First, make your way to the ReverbNation website (you can click on the image below to navigate there):

ReverbNation landing page

Click the ‘signup’ on the upper right:

ReverbNation fan signup link

This will navigate to a new page where you will specify what type of signup you wish to do:

ReverbNation singup category selection

Assuming you select ‘fan’, you are met with a form into which you can enter your data:

ReverbNation fan signup form
ReverbNation fan signup form

Note that the form provides a shortcut if you are a member of Facebook or MySpace. Essentially, this will use your profile info on these sites to fill out this form. This is merely a minor convenience. In order to keep this general, we will ignore these shortcuts. The long form process works whether or not you are a member of one of these social networking sites.

It appears that much of this information is optional. However, it would be encouraged that you fill in as much information as you are comfortable in yielding. In this manner, it is unlikely you will receive a concert announcement for a Nome gig when you live in Sarasota. Also, ReverbNation implies that the Birthdate is required – likely in order to ensure the signee is at least 13 years of age. However, anecdotal evidence suggests that singup works just fine without this information.

After filling in the form, click the ‘sign up’ button. You will be directed to a confirmation screen:

Within moments, a confirmation email should arrive at the inbox corresponding to the email address you entered in the signup form. It should resemble the following:

  1. What are some businesses that would sponsor for voice lessons?
    )i(I just recently got a drumset.. It’s got a snare, hi-hat, bass drum, two regular toms and a floor tom. It also has four cymbals. I’ve already learned how to count in fourths, eighths, and sixteenths.
    I’m learning the feel of thirtysecondths. I was wondering what else there is to learn besides reading music which I have been practicing with the book I have. Would the drum lessons be worth my while?.
