If you smoke, bring ALOT of cigarettes, that's all I can say.

hey, i just checked out your band.. pretty good stuff...

as for tips, don't get too serious, bring pringles, cheez its (white cheddar), Hi-C Fruit punch, your guitars/instruments, juicy fruit, a baseball hat, a poncho, lucky underwear, and your voice.

you should be all set with all that stuff ^.

oh and don't forget duct tape

Alright, if you're done writing and the songs are memorized by the band to perfection (seriously), make sure your instruments are properly set up and tuned (drums particularly), and maybe bring in some cool toys or pedals to experiment with a bit.

We Arent Gonna Drink, Were 15 Dad Gummit!


Well why didn't you say so? Fifteen year olds never drink.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Proven fact, I actually quit on my 15th birthday and took it up again on my 16th.

I didn't drink until my 19th birthday because underage drinking is against the rules*

*Note: I actually don't drink at all, but I'm having fun with this thread.

I quit drinking before I was legal, what a waste.

400 miles? Does anybody else think that that is absolutely INSANE?! Also, if you're all 15, who is driving you there? One of the parents?

Anyway, crazy crap aside, know your songs and be prepared BEFORE you even get into the studio. Make sure you're all tight and in time. Change strings maybe a day or two before recording, and make sure the drummer tightens his skins.

People drive far farther than that for a good studio

At 100 miles an hour, that's only 4 hours: how many of us have UG'd for a similar unbroken time period?
