The Complete Idiot's Guide to Open Mic Night will give you the musical and performance knowledge, technical skills, and, most importantly, the confidence you need to step up to the microphone and give it your all. This book contains information on how to sign up, preparing your set, venue etiquette, performance, the equipment you might need, networking, and promotion so friends and fans will come out and show support. But the heart of this book is the songs---25 great songs all arranged for voice and guitar, by such artists as Foo Fighters, Plain White T's, Radiohead, Bruno Mars, Gnarles Barkley, Train, The Black Crowes, Jason Mraz, Jackson Browne, and many more.

Every song is paired with a detailed lesson on how to play the tune, and each song-geared lesson is peppered with concepts that will heighten your overall understanding of music. In addition, each lesson contains biographical info about the artist or band, and sometimes some background on the creation of the song, information that's perfect for on-stage open mic banter. Plus, all songs are performed and demonstrated on the provided CDs. And with the TNT software included on the discs, you can slow songs down, loop sections, change keys, and even drop out the vocals for karaoke-style sing-along practice.
