What’s up rockers! I wanted to let you know that I’ve taken over running the weekly Home Recording Twitter Chat and renamed it the DIY Music Twitter Chat. It’s an open forum where indie musicians can discuss the ins and outs of DIY recording, mixing, and production, and anything else that is related to the making of music outside of a professional studio. All you need to join is a Twitter account and some free time on Wednesdays at 12:30 Pacific Time, just use the hashtag #diymusicchat to jump in!
Since the chats cover so much good info, I wanted to make sure I could save them for future reference and started archiving them on Storify. Check out the archives or come join us live!
In one of the coolest uses of web technology I’ve seen yet, Google presents an interactive tour of Abbey Road Studios in London, narrated by producer Giles Martin, son of George Martin, who, as you know, famously produced the Beatles at Abbey Road.
Tour the studio, watch a recording session, test your mixing skills, it’s the next best thing to being there and having your own personal tour.
Absolutely highly recommended for anyone interested in recording and music history!

Hello rockers – I’ll make this quick. Work has me hidden away in an undisclosed location on a major project of great import. In the meantime, I am nearly finished remastering my first album It’s Hard and will get back to making new music when that is finished. Look for a slew of songs to hit my YouTube channel by the end of the month. Peace!
