Reviewed by Malcolm Gladstone from New South Wales, Australia

The whole role of a good teacher is to instruct from simple to complex, with a minimum of "padding", to ensure that at the end of each section of a training course the student has a complete grasp of the content. David, your course is just that - and was immediately captivated by the breakdown & content of each section of the course. In my opinion, anyone aspiring to tread the - sometimes rocky - path of recording, whether at home or as a entry into the more professional side, should not be without this great instructional tool. Thanks mate, from someone who's been playing - and trying to record stuff - for over 40 years. I'll send you the first CD!! :)

The information presented in this course is a gold mine!! You’ll find so much concrete information within this course: such as how to create that Big Guitar Sound in your mix, you will be amazed. I would suggest you watch this video more than once, you’ll find excellent info you may have missed. If you're serious about honing your skill when it comes to Home Recording, don’t pass up this opportunity, it is worth every penny.
