Listen and Learn – Gig Gab Podcast 144

New sound for your band, new thoughts from your band members, even new sound for the show. Yep, the theme for this episode is, most undoubtedly, Listen and Learn.

First we share a comment about getting sound on stage just right and – no surprise here – it’s all about listening. Then we talk through Paul’s drummer replacement process. There was a message loud and clear there, too. Dave shares a lesson about listening to his fellow band members, and realizing that you’re not always hearing what you think you’re hearing!

Lastly, but not leastly, there’s new sound for the podcast itself, too… and some mid-show tweaks are necessary to dial it in. It’s ALL about listening, including Paul’s dog who has something to say, as well.

Download, press play and – you guessed it – Listen and Learn!
