Recording Devices and Headphones
What kind of device are you using to record your rehearsals? And what kind of headphones do you use when you listen to music? A lot of musicians I know are comfortable recording rehearsals on their cell phones and listening to music on their iPod headphones – but somewhere down the line you’re going to want to invest in some kind of recording device and some headphones.
Why? Listening to yourself will make you a better player, and so will listening to music in finer detail. No need to go overboard – a lot of good recording devices are available in the $100-150 range, and good headphones are available for less than $100. You’ll be surprised to hear things you didn’t notice before, and that will be sure to change your playing as well.
