The Isolationist’s Guide to Recording Vocals and Guitar in the Safety and Comfort of Your Own Home

$ Pay What you Can

This workshop is designed to help you get a better grasp on recording your vocals and guitar with enough quality so that you can send them to a studio or producer who can then put them to music and provide you with a radio ready version of your new songs. I have worked in this fashion with songwriters in different states and countries with great success, and I look forward to helping you learn or improve your techniques so you can generate great sounding tracks. We’ll talk about the sound of your space, equipment you can use at various price points, and the techniques that pertain to capturing good sounds.

When it’s time to record a radio ready version of that new song, many songwriters and musicians are used to going to a studio to cut their tracks. That’s certainly how I started back in the 80’s, but for me, I loved recording, and I knew I’d have to find a way to set up my own way to do it whenever the spirit moved me. To that end, I was a super early adopter of the concept of the home recording studio. Basement 3 Productions was originally formed around the idea of a mobile recording studio and grew to be a combination of my own small studio at home, a mobile rig, and pretty soon began incorporating file sharing so I could work with people anywhere in the world, never having to actually be in the same room.

Forward to 2020, and along comes COVID-19 – now this concept is not only convenient—it is necessary. It’s also an important time to make music to help people through these hard times, and it’s also a time where many are stuck at home and have some time to focus on writing new songs.

Kenny Schick Online Production Workshop WCS

From Kenny: I am looking forward to presenting the music Online Production Workshop on January 19th, and I’m excited to be part of the first online workshop for WCS where I’ll join y’all from my studio in Nashville.

Online Production Workshop

This particular workshop came to be in response to a repeated theme during song screenings, and that theme was that production really needs to be considered when pitching songs—both for artists and licensing opportunities. High quality production is now expected in all arenas of the music industry, and this even includes demos.

We will be picking 3 songs (maybe more if we have time) from demos you send in to discuss in terms of how I would approach them from a production standpoint: a style I’d imagine the song in, instruments and sounds I’d use, composition, arrangement, etc. Even if we don’t choose your song, there is plenty to learn listening to ideas I might apply to the chosen songs, as the concepts I use that are specific to one song also contain general principles I apply to any song I am working on.

I hope to give you ideas that you can use to better plan end results of your songs as you begin to write them—a mindset of imagining what a song can become, not just what it is in terms of lyrics and chords.
