“We recorded our demos with a boom box when I was a kid,” says Foo Fighters/Jackson/Me First and the Gimme Gimmes’ guitarist Chris Shiflett. “You were lucky if one of your friends had a Fostex 4-track, but no matter what you did and no matter how careful you were, it always ended up sounding like static by the time you were done. But now, it’s relatively inexpensive to have it all on your computer. I have a Telestar Digio 2 and Pro Tools setup in my garage. I run a Line 6 Pod for guitars, and I have a set of Roland V-Drums. It’s not album quality, but it’s great for demos and for working out song ideas. I never would have dreamed that I would have something like this when I was a kid, but now it’s standard. When I write a song, I don’t even have to bother burning a CD and sending it to my band mates in Jackson who are in Northern California. I bounce it to an mp3 and post it to my Web page. Then, I just send them the link and they can download the song and drop it into iTunes to learn it.” —Bridget Oates
