This is one for the tmp composer/arranger posse, I want to write my own arrangement of a song. And as far as copyright etc goes I'm sure there's a whole minefield of licenses, monies to be paid, PRS and stuff before I can even put pen to paper. Question is what's the process I need to go through before I can happily sit down and actually start writing? I don't want to make money from it at all, or even sell the piece, just for me to play in public if that's any easier. :? Looking forward to the responses, and dreading that it's gonna cost me hundreds in fees just to be able to play my own piece on a bandstand! :?
