Me (the guitarist) and the singer and recording tomorrow. I also will play drums and bass when we record. Tomorrow is the first time we are actually going to record. We've been jammin for about 4 or 5 months and have 10 or 12 good songs. We're using a really simple recording program called GarageBand.

So basically, do you have any tips?


We figured we would jam and practice for about an hour, run through our best four songs for about 15 minutes each, then go and record as much as we can. So any other tips about recording, or anything similar, thanks.

take your time. drink **** loads of energy drinks. and dont expect more than 4-5 songs. don't rush, and consider anyhting more than 3 a bonus.

Good luck...bring drinks and snacks (just be sure it's ok to have it where you are recording, some people are really picky)

It's better with no teeth, trust me. Much fewer scars on my penis now that I've switched from seniors in high school to senior citizens.

Warm up before then record and be patient with yourself and others in the band as you kinda gotta get it perfect when you record so dont be surprised if you're there for quite a long time
And yeah gotta have food lol

We had no food or energy drinks but it went fine.

We recorded a total of 4 songs (2 rock and 2 acoustic) in about four hours.
