Awesome! If you need a connection in Toronto, don't hesitate to get in touch. I'm not sure what your plans are for distribution or whatever but I'll help out the best I can if you need it.

Green Day's "Basket Case" is the same progression.

I actually prefer working with younger bands. It's nice when they're really talented but the excitement of working with someone on their first recording is really a big part of it for me. I'm glad things went well. Eventually, one of these young bands is going to make a name for themselves and more ...

Mastering in Toronto at Joao Carvalho Mastering.

I work as the night shift guy at Joao Carvalho Mastering here in Toronto. I'd love to reach out to more TapeOp readers and help them with mastering at a world class studio on a smaller budget by working through the night. Check out the studio at www.joaocarvalhomastering.com I've done work with a lo...

I find the mic placement has a lot to do with the purpose of the guitar in the song. If the guitar is the primary instrument, I'd mic it with a bit more body than if it's one of 10 instruments in the mix.

As an engineer, I've had musicians suggest microphones several times. I'm never offended and at least half the time it's the right mic for the job. If you sound like you know what you're talking about and limit your "help" to just this decision, there shouldn't be a problem. It's also all about deli...

I'd have to work Saturday and Sunday nights. Dude, if that's a major drawback to getting an internship at Blackbird, then you're making the wrong decision in terms of choosing a career. Agreed! Engineers get used to taking "weekends" when they happen and almost never on the actual weekend. I know I...

That's one of the risks I was trying to highlight here. Thanks for putting it into words like this. Also, sometimes showing off isn't the best idea either. haha. :)
