Here’s one for all you budding recording engineers out there.
Don’t get all excited about your new multitrack recorder and tell your teenage son how great it would be for him to learn how to use it and record his own stuff, unless you want to come home from work and find that the song you’ve been recording and mixing until 3am has been replaced by something like this.
He met me at the door with that goofy grin that says, “Look what I did!” But all I did was rant and rave like a maniac. That was so not cool. I felt horrible afterwards and still do. I remember my dad doing the same damn thing to me when I messed with his recording stuff. Stabbed myself in the heart, I did.
So, anyway, the song I was planning on putting up here tonight will have to wait a while. It sucked anyway, so I’ll just take this as a lesson in how to use the machine (and in making regular backups).
And, hey, THIS has got a nice beat and you can dance to it…
