Recording at Goldsmith

The band that I play guitar for (The Gallery Singers) recorded at Goldsmith Studios today. That’s my guitar on the chair there, the God guitar. I got it in Berea for $70. Even though I’m not here for my work at Doppelgang, it’s important to take what I can from this experience and apply it to my internship. It seems like it would be easy for a band to waste studio time by dicking around and just nerding about the studio (the records in it, etc.). At the end of the day, I learned how important it is to stay focused on your work while you’re paying for time. Goldsmith has a really good rate for the quality of the studio ($300 a day), and this is one of the cheaper ones. I’ve seen a couple around town that charge $1,200 an hour. When we finished our twelve hour time slot, we had seven songs recorded. We were amazed. The owner of the studio even pulled us aside to say “This is the most work any band’s ever gotten done in a day.”
