There is no one only method but a box full of tools! I am a fully trained musician and very good on what I am doing. A song has to have an atmosphere, the music should support the lyrics. Instrumental music expreses the same feeling without lyrics as well.
+++ Working with me means honesty, trust, perfection and passion. +++
I am working as a profesional guitarist about 20 years now. My intial start into music was the jazzgroup in my highschool, the first concert was one of the deepest experiences for me. From that moment I was sure that music is going to be my life.
I started playing jazz - Miles Davis is one of my biggest influences - and I discovered later Blues and Rock - like Steve Ray Vaughn, Toto, The Eagles and many more. Nowadays I love all the new artists like Lorde, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga or Billy Ellish etc. I respect them not for beeing famous but for beeing hard working and very talented artists.
My services includes recording instruments, arranging your finished song or helping you out to make your song once more better than it is actually. Depending on the genre I can also mix and master your song. Finally .. lets talk about it.

Daniel did a bunch of mixes for my projects. There has been live recordings and studio recordings with my jazz projects and all of his mixes sound amazing. He knows how to balance the acoustic instruments, he is also able to make very musicaly cuts - if necesary. He also produced a backing track for me for a drum solo of mine for MEINL Cymbals Germany.

Based on that in 95% of the case I got very clear idea of what I would add or change in the song or what the song still needs. Then I start to ask for the Intention of the Artist idea direction, I am asking for some references OR if the Artists give me a free Hand.
