Here are some links from around the web that I’ve come across over the last couple of weeks. I posted them all to my Twitter account, but I thought I’d post them again here in case you missed them. You can follow me on Twitter here – @joegilder.
- Tools of the Trade – The Notebook – For all you songwriters, this is a great look at what is likely your most important songwriting tool. Brought to you by ServeTheSong.net. You can follow them on Twitter here – @ServeTheSong
- Mixing on Headphones – I mention in my article on studio monitors that it’s a good idea to do your mixes on studio monitors. However, this article gives some great tips on how headphones can become an invaluable part of your mixing process. Brought to you by Sound on Sound magazine.

- Who Killed Amanda Palmer – You may or may not be familiar with Amanda Palmer, but I randomly discovered her. What caught my eye is that her latest album was produced by Ben Folds. I’m a big fan of Ben, so I was intrigued. This website is basically a journal she kept, documenting the entire process of creating the album (complete with pictures and videos). It’s a longer read, but I found it to be fascinating and inspiring. You can follow Amanda on Twitter here – @amandapalmer.
