We’re 15 episodes in on this podcast party! What a great summer of podcasting it’s been. Thanks for listening, and making it worth it to keep putting this show out every week.

On this episode of The Modern Recordist, I get to hang out with my old musical pals Ted Fox and Rico. We talk about some really fun stuff, like how Ted and I used to record in a really unconventional way. Listen now.

In addition to unconventional methods for recording, we also talk about the story of Mississippi John Hurt (it’s pretty cool), how John Hurt influenced Ted’s musical style, the unconventional way Ted learned to play guitar, and why Ted and Rico even play music in the first place.

And of course, Ted and Rico play some songs live in the studio as well.

While you’re here hangin around my site, make sure you poke around a bit, as I’ve got plenty of free goodies for you to check out, including Recording Drums 101, a resource of simple and practical tips for recording drums.

These are methods that I learned from years of recording and studying what some of the legends do to record drums. In other words, these techniques, while simple, sound amazing.
