Before you record!

These are some tips and suggestions that years of experience have taught us.  These will help you save time and money.

Rehearse!  Rehearse!

Extra! Rest / Partying
You've heard it before, and you'll hear it again.  Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!  Not very many people like to practice playing the same song over and over again.  But, we've found that the best recordings come from those who know their songs, backwards and forwards, to where they know every painstaking part.  

You'll want to rehearse at least a couple of days before the session.  Work out your intros, endings, any dynamic sections of the songs, and your solos.  Get these down so that you are comfortable with them, and know them well.  Rehearse your songs, don't just jam (unless your jams really are just as good as the Grateful Dead.)

We can not stress how important practicing is.  You will get a much better product if you know your tunes, and everyone knows their parts.  If you wait until you come in to the studio to work out intros, etc... you will be draining the energy out of all the artists involved, you will waste your time, and most importantly, you will waste money.  If you want to use the studio as a glorified rehearsal hall, that's fine with us, but you should know that the clock is running!
