I’ll stick to the facts: I watched the vocals mixing class twice, once to get the gist of things, second time to follow David’s instructions. Couple of things happened. First, i followed the steps about hydration and warm up over and over again. I felt like an idiot for a couple of days until one night my voice started to feel a little elastic and soft, for lack of a better word. Then I sang and hydrated and repeated that combo for hours. I happened to be writing a song, and as I learned more about my own voice and timbre by listening ... I started to build confidence. I’d never, ever experienced confidence and exhilaration while singing before. (And I’ve been playing instruments well and singing badly for a long, long time.) Not only did I start knocking out “keepable” comps of verses, but I got so deeply into the melody and vibe of what I was working on that my songwriting and arrangement started to take off and fairly quickly improve. A week later, I’ve got a track I never thought I was capable of - a simple sophistication of melody and lyrics that flowed entirely from the confidence gained doing David’s exercises. The second thing that happened was the engineering. I just did what David said. The first two hours of tracking were horrible - my gainstaging was awful. Rookie terrible. I went back to the video. I did what he said to do - play around with your gear and your interface over and over until you understand your equipment’s ranges and behavior. A week later, I’m getting rich, broadly-detailed recordings that - guess what - massively ramp up my confidence. So ... the result of watching (and following) David’s vox class is not just that I’m better at singing and/or recording vocals now. It’s that I’m not even the same person I was a week ago. That person couldn’t do what I’m routinely doing now. If that’s not the purpose of education, I don’t know what is. You don’t just learn something from David’s instruction. If you follow it, you become something. This was the 4th class I bought from him. Honestly, you’ll spend $69 on booze tomorrow (Memorial Day). The liquor store won’t give you your money back if the beer sucks. David will give you your money back and probably call you while he transacts the refund. Honest guy and talented pro. Try the class and see who you really are on the other side of the microphone.
