-bring good equipment, no old drum-heads or marshall mg amps
-listen to the recording engineer
-make sure you are as tight as can be timing wise
-if there are problems, don't be afraid to speak up and (respectfully) point them out
-on the other hand, don't be an asshole either
-tune up before every take
-show up on time
-refrain from texting/calling friends. in fact, cut off contact with everyone outside until the job is done.
-be respectful of the recording equipment, dont turn knobs or mess with microphones unless you are invited to do so.

(this is an important one, and should be agreed with the engineer):
-delegate one band member as the "representative" of the band. the representative will then speak for the band in all matters regarding the mix.
when you are given the initial mix, have the whole band sit down and listen to it, make note of what you would like to be changed, and then have the representative talk to the engineer about it.
this avoids the ****ty situation of having each and every member of the band call up the engineer seperatly, demanding that their own instrument be made louder. have the whole band decide on what needs to be changed and have one person deal with it.
