How can this book help me?
The goal of Musician’s Survival Guide to a Killer Record is to help the modern musician convert recording decisions into musical ones, and technical decisions into practical ones. Not only do I explain the musical strategies for making a Killer Record, I also break down the technical information to its core so that you can strategize based on your recording reality, whatever that is.
You have the gear that you have, and the gear that you have is going to change over time. So long as you have what you need to make a record now, I can help you make it a Killer Record.
Really, you can make a Killer Record under nearly any circumstance. It just requires the right mindset.
What’s in it?
My Survival Guide is chock full of recording, mixing, and producing strategies designed to keep recording a fun and focused process.
