It's fun to make mistakes

Because you learn from them and get new ideas later ^_^.

YAY FOR LEARNING. thumbsup

Well...

In the acoustic guitar thread I confused blumlein as being M/S and thought
blumlein was actually the equivalent of XY. (it's been a while since I've
recorded anything)

Re-mixing my old tracks, I hear things I did wrong mic-wise. I'm also the type
of person who has to make sure everything is well and good, so while I was
in school 3 hours was not enough time for me to get certain things down with
the consoles and headphone boxes always screwing up. (it was NOT me I
can assure you all of that!)

Just things that I could've done differently I suppose is what I learned from.

Now I know not to do those things next time and also a permie reminder for
my forehead...to be written in sharpie of course.

Never forget to flip the damned phase. heh

Making mistakes is a really important part of the learning and the maturation process.

Those who don't occasionally make a mistake or occasionally fail at something difficult are probably not pushing themselves.

Now, the important thing is -- like choosing your battles -- choose your mistakes.

That is, take chances when you can afford to lose or take extra time -- but take it more cautiously when you're betting the farm on the outcome.

If it wasn't for mistakes, I wouldn't have anything to do.

So I have to ask this.

Is every recording perfect to any of you? Personally, I don't think so, something wrong will happen eventually that someone will learn from.

With that being said, what is a perfect recording to you? :p

And the more forcefully it delivers you "out" of your life, the better it is.

Once upon a time, say 1993, I noticed a girl manning a checkout counter, bored out of her mind, and the music was playing in the background, and it hit me: solace! That's what pop music playing on a radio is all about.

Deep down I could see she was a miserable chick for probably lots of reasons, but the pop music let her feel just a little bit better trapped in the store... and it had a big, universal meaning [for me] at the time.

Multiply this by thousands of chicks behind thousands of counters... it's almost like the target demographic for the Foo Fighters, eh?

Mistakes? It just perception. Remember our olde accidental friend "tape delay" from the sixties? Complements of our people in the mistakes department.
