    Thanks Tom,
    I can’t emphasize enough the point of being ready with the band before going to the studio.

    My eyes and ears were opened to all the miniscule and intricate “things” I do with the guitar, and all the small differences and inconsistencies that were exposed in my playing when I first layed down a few guitar tracks on one of my singles. I must’ve spent hours trying just r trying to keep the rhythmic accustic with the drums.
    Great Article.
    Thanks, A
