    If you don't wanna be worrying about saliva, smoke some weed, the negative side effect, dry-mouth, can be turned into a positive...

    Then, to soothe your throat so it doesn't begin to irritate you, keep a glass of water next to you, so in between takes take a sip, the fact that you are high, will keep your mouth dry after your sips of water too...

    Although, spitting while high sometimes doesn't come off too good, unless it's a track about weed...

    But a glass of water does me fine...

    Ive actually read from many engineers that giving their artist water while recording should be completely avoided.

    Stay far away from H2o when laying your vocals

    The absolute best thing you can do for your vocals in my book is warm your vocal cords up properly. What I usually do is run through the track three or four times before even tryin' to record it. If you salivate to much then eat half a piece of bread before hand and drink only half of a small glass of water. After that don't drink any more unless your mouth gets too dry. Warm milk, honey, and lemon juice Are methods to prevent your throat from getting sore and to help keep your vocal chords warmed up. They will also help you to keep from losing your voice. These methods are more useful for live performances, unless you're gonna record more than two or three songs in one sitting. That's my two. pz.
