  1. This seems pretty accurate to me. I might expand the definition of a 'hybrid' band to include a band that mixes their original music with their own arrangements or versions of cover tunes in a style that fits. Playing songs that people know in a personal style can help bridge the gap. I would suspect, though, that your rules for original bands are probably more applicable to this type of hybrid. There are definitely fewer people who seek out new music than there are those who prefer the familiar. I am lucky to live in a city that has a number of venues that support original/hybrid acts in a variety of genres. Nice article.
  2. "Mixing is as difficult to master as playing a musical instrument" Ain't that the truth! This is a helpful article. Nothing significantly different than other things I have read and heard, but some of your descriptions and explanations provide a different way of looking at parts of the process. I have been reading books, mixing and re-mixing, reading articles, mixing and re-mixing, taking on-line courses, mixing and re-mixing... I'm getting better, but it does seem like slow going. Or perhaps it's just me.
  3. I have one question, Craig. In the EQ section you say, "Also, using the low-pass filter on instruments that veer toward the bass range, like guitar and piano, can help trim their low end to open up more space for the all-important bass and kick drum." Did you mean that to say, "using a high pass filter..." or am I misunderstanding the concept?
