Have you ever tried to get a nine month old dressed?

It’s almost impossible.

As you may recall, my wife and I have a three year old boy and twin nine month old girls.

It has been a few years since I had to dress a toddler, and it can be so frustrating. The most frustrating part? Those pesky, little armholes. It’s almost like humans are hardwired to not put their arms through the armhole until they are at least two years old. They fight with all of their little might to try to help me get their arms through the hole of the t-shirt. Somehow, though, they just manage to make it worse.

I remember when my son Owen was able to put his arms through the armholes for the first time without incident. It was a day of great rejoicing at the Gilder household.

A lot of us are like toddlers when it comes to working in the studio. If we can’t do something that we want to do we get angry and frustrated, perhaps we even try to force it to happen. There’s something to be said for experimenting and trying things out, but a big part of your journey is going to be simply trying and failing, learning along the way.

However, there are some things you don’t know how to do.

That’s okay.

Those things can be learned.

That is why I created my VIP membership.

As a member you’ll learn things like:

* how to program MIDI drums
* how to mix drums
* how to record background vocals
* how to mix a song in 15 minutes
* how to record a great sounding guitar/vocal track

…and much more.

P.S. I just posted the final video of a 4-part series on recording and mixing a simple guitar/vocal song. I gotta admit. I know I’m biased, but this song sounds incredible. To see the whole process from start to finish, become a Viper by clicking the link above.
