Song reader Album by Beck

At concerts, there’s always a moment when the singer turns the microphone toward the audience and stops singing. That’s where Beck started: Song Reader was the name of a songbook containing sheet music for 20 songs before it was the name of an album.

It’s also the name of a website, songreader.net, that anyone can connect to, where fans can download song chords that they like and share their own interpretations. It’s a great way for an artist to address the problem of piracy and turn it into something positive. In a way, the artist becomes the one who’s pirating songs from his fans!

Here, copyrights are less important than the invitation to co-create, which puts artists and their audience on the same stage!
