This is a great series. Thank you very much for sharing this @MrBouzouki !
I especially like how he explains and reveals whats happening in the individual tracks. This is very instructive. Ive started with the Peter Gabriel episode (of course), and already watched the Bowie and Police ones, too. (I'm sure that tells you a lot about my age. ;))
Im gonna watch (and learn) through it all...

Cheers - I've already picked up the trick with reverb of panning it to the opposite side of where the instrument is placed. So one side has the dry, the other side the wet.
I think that was in the Van Halen one.

Be careful with these as they can easily set you off looking at lots more stuff. For example, after watching one about Boston, I ended up watching a YouTube video about Tom Scholz,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Scholz

and several hours passed ....  ::) ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D

Wow, nice resource @MrBouzouki ! Thank you. I like how he is going through
one song at a time in depth, vs. just teaching general songwriting theory and
best practices.
