- playing each part to a click

 

Listen

- to a phone recording of yourselves (identify any issues with performance / sound)

- to other music and compare with your material (what makes it great?)

 

Know

- the songs (structure, chords, solos, beginnings/endings)

- your sound (amp/fx settings, drum tones/tuning, overall feel)

- what to expect from the session (see below)

 

Provide

- reference material (keep it realistic and relevant)

- as much information as possible about the songs

- tempos for all songs

- tracking files (each part recorded to the click, even phone recordings are fine)
