[quote author=SG John link=topic=11907.msg156808#msg156808 date=1168828012] Hard fact of life. Tape doesn't lie. It gives you everything, good or bad. We usually have a little portable tape recorder going during practice, especially when working out new material. It's one of the best ways to see where songs are going, and what needs to be worked on. You can also see how many times the bass player says, "hey can I bum another beer?". [/quote] i record every practice and shows...its the deal for practice, like saturday we came up with a new song, i just put it on the comp and send it to the rest of the band so they can get it ready for next pracice ..
