Some cool news, another special feature from Andy Gagliano, Viewer Mail, part two of an interview with legendary rock gear-head Bob Heil, and a new piece of gear from SSL that you might actually be able to afford!
Andy Gagliano to give us a hand. He's an independent producer, audio engineer and sound designer for film and television. He's worked with several independent musicians in the studio, covering a huge range of genres from rock to hip-hop, acoustic to orchestral.
This week Andy stopped by to discuss helpful preparations before going into the studio.

Mark was kind enough to offer these clips to us so that you'd have a chance to listen in.
Answer To Last Week's Trivia Question
Q: Simply tell us the name of the band featured in the picture below.
There was also two bonus questions. 1) What classic Little Feat song was covered by Garth Brooks? 2) What famous top ten country artist was in Pure Prairie League? The answers are Dixie Chicken and Vince Gill!
Congratulations to John Demetre! He got all three questions right and won a free copy of Guitar & Drum Trainer courtesy of Ryan Smith over at RenegadeMinds.com!
Honorable mention goes out to Brian Stephens from the Music Pro Show podcast who wrote in to say, “If any drummers are listening to your show and didn’t spot Richie Hayward right way, they need to turn in their sticks immediately!?
See you next week!
