10. Indicating the wrong mallets for an instrument. Brass mallets on vibes? Try a hammer on a violin!
9. Writing the glockenspiel part as heard. You shouldn't have to climb a ladder of leger lines to read a glock part. Keep it in the staff.

The horror stories, which I do include in the music marketing book, include a group that had paid a small fortune for merchandise before receiving a cease and d…
