The Beginning of the End

Are you a firm beleiver in the tried and true method of Large Studio's Intern to 2nd Assist to 1st Assist to Recoring engineer then possibly to Mix engineer?

What are the different qualities really required to be a good Assistant Engineer vs a Good Recording engineer? Do these tend to get in the way of each other?

Would you be so kind as to share with us some of the great off-the-wall methods you've come across (IE the submerging of a microphone or the SM57 in a Snapple Bottle)

And finally, what do you think the definitive Records to study for:
Production?
Engineering?
Drum Sound?
Guitar Sound?
Vocal Sound?
Against the Grain methodology?
Any category that my exhausted, feeble mind may have missed?

Good attitude=good engineer, good assistant.
(Good attitude meaning, willingness to learn everything.)

I'll refer you to all other threads for the technique stuff.

Definitive records? categories? I don't know. Here are some albums I just like a lot.

Hendrix-Electric Ladyland, Axis
King Crimson-Islands, Lark Tongues, Starless and Bible Black
Tupac-any
Kings Of Leon-Aha Shake Heartbreak
Beck-Guero
Eminem-Slim Shady LP,+
50 Cent- Get Rich....
Nigel Kennedy & Kroke-East Meets East
Betty Davis-any
Audioslave- the first one
Crowded House- Together Alone
Peter Gabriel- 4/Security

All great sonically for different reasons.

Too many to go on.

It woudn't have been Level Loc. I only use the Loc when I record, which I did very little of on UP. I can't really remember, but it might have been the Spectrasonics 610's.
