Layer Up

In his completely-online Layer Up! Crash Course In Layering, Fett shows you how to dramatically improve the emotional impact and fullness of your recordings.  “Layering” is one of those secret pro techniques that can make the difference between an “almost there” recording and a “front of the pack” recording.

When you complete this course, you’ll have a completely new, fresh perspective on “arranging’ parts in a recording, as well as many specific suggestions for techniques that you can use on your own recordings immediately.

This video-based course is chock-full of not just excellent ideas, but many specific illustrations using two guitars, played live at the same time, so you can see and hear the impact that layering can have — even in the most basic arrangement.

The course isn’t taught on specific dates. Instead, it is 100% on-demand and available at any time, from anywhere. It is entirely Internet-based, and all the course videos are also fully downloadable to your own computer or other device. This means that not only can you take the course at your convenience, as many tines as you’d like, but you also have guaranteed lifetime access to the course materials if you download them.
