I started out working music jobs in Atlantic City, in the 1980’s -way before music schools and top flight teachers. I thought everything about the music business was cool, especially the slang, jargon and terminology -which I loved! Accordingly, I started a notebook documenting the endless supply of interesting, eccentric and funny expressions musicians had.
I kept working on that book until Hal Leonard published it for me way back in 2002, I am able to offer a free download of a PDF file here on my home page. Enjoy!
P.S. Don’t hesitate emailing me your favorite slang.
