For that wide demographic of struggling musicians with unlimited disposable income, today may be your big break.
Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, in conjunction with fundraising auction site Biddingforgood.com, is offering his services to the highest bidder to help produce, arrange and perform on your original track. Tweedy will, presumably, throw in humoring you on the quality of your song for no additional cost.
Here's what you get if you win...
"One 8-hour day of recording a song at the world famous Wilco Loft. Your session will be tracked by a staff engineer and overseen by Jeff Tweedy who will also help you produce and arrange your song....and maybe even play on it if you need him to! You will leave with a CD of a finished mix. Date to be determined according to schedules."
As of this writing, the bidding is up to $3,250 and is set to expire on March 12. So there's still time to read about Americana recording techniques in No Depression and pretend not to freak out that Jeff Tweedy, former weatherman and current indie hero, is recording a song with you, a nobody.
