• Don't deny it; I know you've done it. You've stood or sat in the audience of a show or concert, and thought, "the guitar is too loud!" or "the vocals are too quiet!" or "that sound engineer doesn't have a $%*!ing clue!" Everyone has a sound engineer inside them just waiting to get out. Do you have what it takes to mix bands for a living, or even for a hobby? Does your taste and style mean you'd be doing a far better job than that rough looking fellow with the beer belly and the ponytail? Are you pestering the sound engineer because you are better than him, or because you don't have a clue about what he's doing?
