Today I want to address you new readers…those of you who have started following The Recording Revolution in recent weeks and months. First of all, thank you so much for being a reader, downloading my eBook, commenting on posts, and watching my video tutorials. This site would not have a reason to exist if it weren’t for you keeping up with it.

Secondly, I want to highlight a few posts and videos that might be of use to you as a new reader that perhaps you missed. If you haven’t figured out by now, I firmly believe we are living in a unique era of music and recording. There is a revolution going on regarding how music is made and distributed. You can join this revolution if you like, or you can go on thinking music has to be made the old (and expensive) way. I prefer the former, and these posts will shed some light on the issue. Enjoy!

Let me just say this. If you have great ideas for songs and are a talented musician with a desire to make great recordings, then money and gear should not be a road block for you. That part of the equation should be removed. Save up a few hundred bucks, read blogs like this one who won’t sell you a bunch of hype, learn your stuff, and then just go make music!
Oh, and when you’ve got your studio setup, take the One Song One Month Challenge to get you started. It’ll walk you through the basics of song production and motivate you to record and finish a new song in one month just to prove to yourself that you can do this. I want you to succeed at home recording because I know it’s possible. Now get to it!
