Funny Things Audio Engineers Say in the Studio

We've picked on all the band members (except keyboard players so far), but we can't leave out the audio engineer who sits behind the keyboard and has to listen to all this stuff.

So, here's a great video of the funny things you'll hear audio engineers say during the recording process.

It really needs more "do it again" and "one more time" in there, though.

Funny Things Vocalists Say in the Studio

We've been taking potshots at band members over the last few days, and it's all in good fun.  People in the studio are really funny.  Check out the bassist video, the guitarist video, and the drummer videos, and have some laughs.

But we can't forget the singers!

Funny Things Bassists Say in the Studio

To continue our assault of every member of a band, here's another "what people say in the studio" video.  This guy pretty much nails band members with his parodies of what people say in the studio when they're not prepared.

It's pretty funny, but think of how much money people wasted in the studio, when it cost a couple thousand bucks a day to record!  How pissed off would you be if your bandmates did this stuff?

Funny Things Guitarists Say in the Studio

Yesterday, I posted about the funny things drummers say in the studio, and I think we all had a good laugh.  If you haven't had that laugh yet, go have it, it's good.

Drummers aren't the only funny people in the studio, though.  You'll always get some good stuff from everyone in the band, including the guitar players.

Yes, even them.

Funny Things Drummers Say in the Studio

If you've been in a band, you've probably heard your drummer say some of these things.  It wouldn't even have to be in the studio, it could be in rehearsal, at a show, or just when they're hanging out screwing around on the kit.

People in bands are funny.  The only thing I think he forgot for this was:

"Hold on, let me just warm up real quick."

How Johnnie Made the Go Kart Racing Music for the WGRD Video

If you haven't checked out the video of Theory of a Deadman and Halestorm rockin the Go Kart Races with some GRD winners, at AJs Family Fun Center, check that out over here.

I wanted some music to put under the video, since GoPro driving video can be a little boring.  I wanted to use Theory of a Deadman and Halestorm music in it, but I didn't want YouTube to block the video for "Third Party Content".

What to do?

Most of the time, you're buried behind a million computer screens, hoping the other people in the room are still there, and you're not talking to yourself.
