The Isolationist's Guide To Recording Vocals and Guitar

Kenny Schick WCSW Workshop 

The Isolationist’s Guide To Recording Vocals and Guitar In The Safety And Comfort Of Your Own Home 

Thursday April 23 - 3:00pm (PT) - 4:30pm 

$ Pay What you Can 

This workshop is designed to help you get a better grasp on recording your vocals and guitar with enough quality so that you can send them to a studio or producer who can then put them to music and provide you with a radio ready version of your new songs. I have worked in this fashion with songwriters in different states and countries with great success, and I look forward to helping you learn or improve your techniques so you can generate great sounding tracks. We’ll talk about the sound of your space, equipment you can use at various price points, and the techniques that pertain to capturing good sounds. 

When it’s time to record a radio ready version of that new song, many songwriters and musicians are used to going to a studio to cut their tracks. That’s certainly how I started back in the 80’s, but for me, I loved recording, and I knew I’d have to find a way to set up my own way to do it whenever the spirit moved me. To that end, I was a super early adopter of the concept of the home recording studio. Basement 3 Productions was originally formed around the idea of a mobile recording studio and grew to be a combination of my own small studio at home, a mobile rig, and pretty soon began incorporating file sharing so I could work with people anywhere in the world, never having to actually be in the same room. 

Forward to 2020, and along comes COVID-19 - now this concept is not only convenient—it is necessary. It’s also an important time to make music to help people through these hard times, and it’s also a time where many are stuck at home and have some time to focus on writing new songs.
