This month, Woody gave us the inside scoop on everything that he and any sound guy must keep in mind when mixing for a legend like BB King:
1) Know the music you’re going to mix and mix the artist the way the artist
wants to sound as best as you can.
2) People came to hear BB King, so make sure that they can.
3) Be aware of the type of crowd that is there and keep the volume in check; it’s not a rock show Inflatable Toys.
4) A guitar player and talent like BB King is all about TONE; reinforce that he already has it.
