Become A Better Studio Musician: 4 Tips to Conquer “Red Light Syndrome”

Guest Blog | Aaron Rays | Become A Better Studio Musician: 4 Tips to Conquer “Red Light Syndrome” . My first real passion is drums. I was lucky enough to have some incredible mentors and teachers along the way, from guys like Mike Shapiro (Sergio Mendes, Macy Gray, Justin Timberlake), Ralph Humphry (Frank Zappa, George Duke), and Craig Thatcher (October Project, Christopher... But of all the lessons and ideas I picked up along the way, I’ve deduced that the single most important thing, as a rhythm player, is being able to confidently play while under pressure. “RLS” (not to be confused with Restless Leg Syndrome), stands for “Red Light Syndrome” and is defined accurately by Urban Dictionary :. Where a person has musical talent, but once they are being recorded, they fall to pieces. Symptoms of Red Light Syndrome include pale skin, cold sweats and frequent mistakes. ‘It took three takes on drums for him to get that, and even on the third time, he didn’t get it. I’m thinking he has Red Light Syndrome…’. It’s that little red flashing light that goes on when you’re in the studio and the producer hits record. You’ve practiced your whole life for this moment, you’ve got this, you shred your instrument, but then, all of a sudden, when the red light goes on, you’ve suddenly forgotten what a drumstick is. It happens to us all at some point. Something about the idea that whatever you play is under the microscope, every screw up, every imperfection, all there to haunt you for the rest of eternity. The biggest bummer of all is, there’s absolutely no way to practice for this situation other than actually being recorded. That is to say, the only way to practice not sucking while being recorded, is to actually suck while being recorded – inevitably pissing off your band mates, and producer, and manager, not to mention your parents who spent all that cash on drum... A few weeks ago I was tracking a little drum idea and realized that you can totally strengthen that Red Light muscle by using my app, Trackd , to practice. At the end of the day, it’s about building a strong, healthy relationship with the Metronome – making sure every note you play lands exactly where you want it to, while being able to do so under the immense pressure of the Red Light. Here’s a few ideas to play with so when you’re at a real session you don’t bite the dust. Turn the click on and play directly with the beats of the click.
