I've been recording music at home with computers for about 17 years now. I'm not a pro, I don't do it for a living, but it is a serious hobby for me that I put a lot of time into. I see lots of questions for help on how to make your home recordings and mixes sound better. Here are some things that I've learned over the years that may be helpful to others.

Note for the pedantic among you: none of these tips are hard and fast rules. There are situations where almost all of them won’t apply. Take what works for you and adapt it, ignore what doesn't.

This past weekend I spent the better part of a Saturday at Rocking Horse Studios in NH. I was there to watch, listen and take notes while the talented “Dusty Gray Band” recorded a few tunes for an upcoming EP, or maybe an album… or a single.. or a web single.. Maybe a cassingle. I left my house around noon and made the short drive to Rocking Horse on Saturday. When I arrived, the band was just about to take lunch break! (Perfect timing) I got fed some hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, coleslaw, chips and…. Sam Adams Summer in a can! (to be fair I had actually brought the beer, so you cannot say I was fed it; because I brought and consumed it myself.. well and let the other guys drink it too). It was good to share some food with the band so I could get to know them before they recorded---

Like most people I have spent many hours contemplating the role of beards in music.Wondering what it is about the beard that makes its wearer inclined to musical prowess is surely a nearly universal experience akin to that dream where you start to fall but wake up suddenly…what the hell is that? Truly the musical beard is a mystery we all have thought about. Is it itchy? Is it hot under all those lights? Is it somehow a crossroads-like devil deal that comes with selling your soul? How do they get it so thick on the sides? I don’t know the answers to any of these questions. Here’s a list of famous bearded musicians (no goatees, Van Dykes, chinstraps or 5 o’clock shadows):

Sometimes it is hard to find new local bands to check out. Who are you gonna trust on if a band sucks or not before you pay your hard earned money on a cover charge. Well… you could trust the guys in the band that say they are awesome… or you could trust other local musicians.. I would say trust the local musician. Below we asked a ton of local rock gods to tell us who they are crushing on for local acts…. Check em out.

We tracked down another bass player and asked him our 5 questions. Actually, we didn’t’ track him down- he came to us. Much like a lawyer running after an ambulance, Jeoff Jarnot bass player for The Joint Chiefs begged and pleaded until we gave him some face time. After he tossed us a few bucks we said ok… then ignored him for a few months. He found us though… and below is the excruciating interview we were forced to sit and listen to while he rambled on.. and on… and on… much like every bass solo ever played, it just wouldn’t end… Any who- here is another 5 questions with the most disposable member of the band- Jeoff Jarnot bass player for The Joint Cheifs. (Ed note: nothing but love for Jeoff)
