Beyond the skill involved in playing an instrument, getting musicians to play together well is an art form in itself. The secrets of how a guitarist, bassist, vocalist, drummer, keyboard player, and more can come together to create a unified sound usually reveal themselves only after years of stage and studio experience. This book explores every aspect of playing with other musicians, including the equipment, hardware, and software used in today's increasingly complex technological world, and the principles of sound every musician needs to know to work at the level of a professional band. So if you're ready to take your band beyond countless rehearsals and fast-forward to a professional sound, How to Make Your Band Sound Great is the guide you need to get you there. Complete with a 60-minute instructional DVD, How to Make Your Band Sound Great supplies instant access to producer and engineer Bobby Owsinski's years of real-life professional experience with bands of all types as a player, recording engineer, and record producer. The book-and-DVD package provides all you need to know to get your band on the way to sounding great using the techniques of veteran professional performing acts in the studio and on the stage. ©2009, Book & DVD.
