Most people never get to go inside a recording studio. I rarely do studio work myself, but some of my colleagues do quite a bit up at Skywalker Ranch. The one and only time I was there was to do the recording for Baz Luhrmann’s La Bohème. It was great fun, but still a bit stressful; you don’t want to be the one to make a blunder that stops things!

Skywalker Ranch was incredible. I’ve been in a few other studios that weren’t nearly so grand. But oh how grand they all can make us sound! It’s pretty amazing, really.

I’ve just located this YouTube Channel that will take you into a recording studio in the UK. I thought some readers might find it interesting. Below is a sample video. (And yes, that’s how we state string numbers 10-10-8-6-4 — this is the order: violin 1, violin 2, viola, cello, bass.)
