I can`t tell where you live by looking at your profile, but there is a great music store, Dusty Groove, in Chicago. They also have an on-line store with an incredible selection of music (they sell vinyl). I have been in their store with my son, who is in his late 20`s. My son asked me when he was in his teens "Why do you have a record player"?. Told him it was a turntable and it played LP`s. He didn`t get it then- but now he owns his own "record player" and buys only LP`s. So you should do some research if you are thinking about selling music. Sign up for their newsletter at Dusty Groove, do some digging around. I think you have a good idea that could be great if you define what it is you want to do.
this is what i have so far as of a visual idea of a store
I will have a stage for local bands to play and have a cafe so people can have a beverage and listen to bands. I will sell cd`s, LP`s, and instruments. Like craig suggested have a redording studio for people to record music they make (for a fee) or to try out a instrument.
if anyone can think of anything else that i can incorporate in to my idea let me know. The more i can offer the more likely i am to succed. thank you all for your support.
