Weekend at 6 String Ranch
Two days of recording and mixing with the best guitar producer in the business
6 String Ranch was founded to help you evolve your music — from playing and songwriting to recording and production. A weekend at the Ranch is the perfect way to get started on your musical legacy project. Bring your song and Matt will help you evolve it into a track that you’ll be proud to share with your friends and family.
Bring a song and Matt will help you get it ready to track with arrangement and production advice and his legendary knack for getting the right tone for the job.
You’ll also have access to the 6 String Ranch collection of over 50 rare, vintage and just plain cool instruments. You’ll leave with a mixed track that’s ready to master.
What you’ll do
The weekend consists of four 3-hour sessions where you’ll decide on your arrangement, select which instruments to play, lay down some basic tracks and add the finishing touches. Matt is accomplished on a range of instruments including guitar, bass, steel guitar, mandolin, dobro and ethnic fretted instruments. He’ll be able to support your song with whatever it needs. Along with Matt, you’ll manage the final mix, with all the effects, eq and everything that’s required to go to mastering.
How to prepare
You’ll get the most out of your weekend if you are well prepared. Bring a song (or songs) that you feel are ready to be recorded for posterity. Having a rough demo is helpful, but not necessary. Have an idea of what you’d like the finished product to be, but keep an open mind and be ready for the creativity that happens in the studio.
What to bring
Bring your song demo, along with sheet music or a good chord chart (here’s a video that shows you what a good chart should look like). You can bring your favorite guitar or select one of the many great axes that live at 6 String Ranch. An mp3, Logic or Garage Band file is a good format for your demo. Bring an external drive and you can take all the Logic files with you.
What you’ll get
You’ll leave 6 String Ranch with a final mix on a CD and mp3 files of your song. All your tracks will be available for you to work with back home or at a mastering studio, but by far the greatest thing you’ll take home is the experience of making your record in a truly professional and supportive environment.
What will your song sound like?
One thing's for sure — it will be the best expression of your song. Below are a few samples of songs that have been recorded by clients (many of them just like you) at 6 String Ranch.
