While your there play guitar when your not needed to stay warmed-up.

My site has this in pretty good detail:

www.greenroomrecording.ca. Go to "Preparing to record." I have it then subdivided by instrument classifications too for more specific stuff.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

Hey, that's a nice simple list that's easy to follow on your site.

On you percussion page, a suggested addition to the line about make sure everything is working would be to mention to have everything tightened up, oiled, good cymbal pads, and anything else to get rid of rattle or unwanted noise.

Annoying to have a great take haunted by a squeak each time the hat goes open and closed.

That's a cool site dude, do you do the producing, engineering, or both?

I'm hoping once I get better at engineering to start up my own studio, i'm getting really sick of working in other peoples studios, at hours that don't suit me. It's great working with small and humble bands, but when you have an amature label who have absolutely no idea breathing down your neck and trying to intimidate you into turning their garage band into the next metallica it gets old haha.

@webcommando - thanks for the suggestion. I need to do a major update of the site as a lot of it is outdated. I'll keep that in mind for when I do it. :-)

@Broken Lungs - I'm a one-man show. It is a hobby I run out of a room in my basement. (the pictures on the site are from our other house.... hence, the update required....) It's not pretty, but it's functional. I'll have to work on 'pretty' when I get some more money. And time. haha.

I don't advertise much (as I say, it's a hobby....), so the people who come in are either by word of mouth or people who know me either directly or indirectly. It makes for a nice personable atmosphere.

Hahaha yeah I totally agree, some of the best home recordings I've ever heard came from a room full of bean bags and a fully loaded bar fridge, especially with vocalists, they need to be really comfortable in the environment they're working in, otherwise the reservations and discomfort shows up in their voice.
