    I worked with Dave on a new project and he was great again. With him the dialogue is easy and he has a great musical sensibility. He understood our music, our moods, right away.

    Dave’s guitar playing was spot on! Not only did he deliver the parts for the project - he went above and beyond.His creative flare is brilliant and his playing was tight and had the perfect groove. Would highly recommend Dave!

Interview with Dave Norman

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: I will start by discussing with you exactly what you want from the track. I'll ask you for song and artist references and we'll discuss your project until I'm confident that I understand your vision. Next I'll listen to the track a number of times to get a feel for the overall mood and direction of the piece. I like to listen to the piece in the studio as well as outside as the context can have a huge impact on how the music feels. After this I will start to think about what I can add to the track to achieve your vision: lead lines, rhythm parts, soundscapes, textures etc... I will also start thinking what guitars, pedals, effects and amps will be the right fit for the song. Finally I will pick up a guitar and start to commit some of my ideas down to the track always thinking about what it is that you want the piece to sound like. Once I have a few different ideas down I will slowly refine the parts until I have commercial quality tracks ready to send to you.

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: I promise unlimited revisions on your track until you are 100% happy.
