Making Your Rough Recordings Anything But “Rough”: A Webinar

A rough recording can do so much more than just capture the melody and lyric of your latest song. Caring about all facets of the songwriting and recording process not only helps you present your songs in the best light but marks you as the kind of professional songwriter that people take seriously.
