I am an "olde dog" that has now learned some new tricks. I've been recording at home for many years, on cassettes, four track digital(TASCAM DP-04) and currently TASCAM DP-02. I play most stringed instruments and do my own singing so 8 tracks and the occassional bounce works good for me. In the past I was satisfied with "one take", thats good enough, let's move on. David has inspired me, at my age of 64, to make it better even if it's only for me and a few friends. I've used DVD'S from David before and got loads of info from them. I like his informal but professional way of presenting the material and the fact that it's in order and easy to follow. The home recording school set has a lot of computer "stuff" that I may never use but who knows, I discovered home recording after playing for 50 years, are computers in my future?. David ALWAYS responds to my Facebook or e-mails as soon as possible and feels like a friend as well as a mentor. Thanks dude!!
