Work with professional musicians on real projects as you extern.
“After the lesson, my mentor worked on a scratch track from an artist that came in over the weekend. Her vocals needed work but he was working on the track by building around it. He started by tracking the bass guitar then later we hooked up the “jet city” amp and he tracked with the electric guitar. He was going to a possible track with all her instruments then asked the artist to come back and re-record her tracks. That process was interesting I knew about this process but seeing it done in person was cool to watch.”
