Hi, all!!

I see a good number of history making producers and engineers on this forum. I'm an engineer myself and was just wondering how everyone started out. Did everyone start out as an assistant at a studio? How did you all get the first major projects? Is it only possible through personal relationships? I'd love to hear your stories.

Thanks..

I think that you'll find quite a variety here. People have taken quite diverse roads to get where they are. Some people come from a musical background, others with technical training and some with no formal training at all. I actually have a degree in music education (something to fall back on I was told). I engineered my first two records long before I ever assisted on one. Kinda wierd but true. I am sure you'll find similar stories from the other contributors.
