Recording Vocals at Home
Anyone who has recorded vocals to tape knows there is a difference between a heart-felt performance, and something that does not quite cut it! There are certain steps that I take to ensure that my own performances are the best I can muster.
First and formost is get enough rest the night before. This is a given. Your body is your instrument and it has to be in tune. Sleep is by far the most important aspect.
Water is the next most important. Not only during the performance, but the day before is essential. Get hydrated. Your chords will need to stretch, and the easier it is for them, the better control you will have.
Something that many performers overlook when setting up to do a recording session is the psycological aspect of it all. This is something that every performer knows and feels, yet it is unspoken in all the advice I have ever found. I particularly like the microphone pointing down at an angle to me, and I find that I can get more 'feel' if I am singing at an upword angle. Try taking a look at how you stand, where you are facing, who is in the control room...lighting, incense, and overall mood. You may find that something completely psycological may improve your perfomance 100%. Everyone has their 'thing'.
A good performance comes not just out of the time performing to the mic, but the preparation, setup and mood of the whole session. Keep these notes in mind next time you go to lay some vocals, and you will get the best performance possible.

Music Mini Course: Learn The Basics Of Reading Music On A Keyboard Instrument
Welcome to the wonderful world of music. As you begin reading this Music Mini Course it is fun to realize that you are also participating in a very important cultural aspect from around the world which has been going on for centuries. Did you know that pianos in some form have been around for over 500 years? Some of the first instruments of this kind were created in the late Medieval Period and were called clavichords. They had a very light, metallic sound because the small hand-pounded 'hammers' were made of very light weight metal-like material. These hammers struck strings of varying lengths to create different tones or pitches. The next cousin to the clavichord was the harpsichord invented by Cristofori in Italy around 1450 A.D. This keyboard instrument had a mechanism in it called the plecktrum which 'plucked' the strings and produced a slightly stronger sound than its predecessor. Whether you are playing an acoustic instrument, which is the closest relative to the history just mentioned, or an electronic keyboard, you are now participating in a centuries old musical art form.

Is the Record Album Dead? Not by a Long Shot
In 1982, Sony and Philips introduced the compact disc, a digital music playback format that used a laser to read the disc. The compact disc was expected to quickly replace the long play record album (LP) that Columbia had introduced in 1949. The product took off quickly, even at a retail price that was nearly double that of a record album, and sales of record albums plummeted. The CD, as compact discs quickly became known, offered what audio magazines called "perfect sound forever" while offering immunity to the effects of the wear and tear that often left records noisy. The record companies reduced the price of manufacture through improved production methods, and the cost of manufacturing a CD soon fell below that of manufacturing a record. Even so, compact discs continued to sell well at the higher price, making the CD quite a profitable product, indeed.
