Thread: Recording standards and other people's songs

    Default Recording standards and other people's songs

    Say, how would one go about recording jazz standards, pop standards, rock songs and anything that isn't the group's original material? It'll my first time dealing with these sorts of things.

    Thanks in advance.

    For mechanical licensing (recording and distributing a song you didn't write) in the U.S., the easiest way is probably to go to the Harry Fox Agency's web site. They have a handy-dandy calculator that you can use to basically punch in the name of the song, the number of copies you're planning on manufacturing, and find out what it'll cost to license it. Pull out a credit card and you're on your way....

    Seeing that you're in Portugal, I'm not sure if they handle that, or if they'd point you where to go....
