Hello everyone. I have been a long time reader of this forum and decided to finally take the plunge and contribute. I have had a small studio in my house for the past four years and have just recently opened it up to others-mainly friends in local bands looking to make a demo. I was just wondering what advice you would impart on a band entering the studio to record for the first time. I've picked up on little things like changing guitar strings and drum heads but I was wondering if there have been any other live and learn staples you wish bands would have done before the clock was running.
