I have been playing instruments since age. I started on trumpet as a kid and quickly moved to guitar. From there I found an opportunity to switch to bass where I played for many bands. One of which was signed to an indie label. I now find myself playing lap steel which has quickly become a passion for me.

Let me add the magic of lap steel guitar to your tracks. I can add the extra layer of depth that the lap steel guitar provides to most genres of music. I will give you a basic backing track that features lap steel. This track will fill in your music to make it sound full. I can also add in a more intricate melody track to make it stand out more. Then mix between the two or use both where needed.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Scott Aumann

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: I believe both have their place. I have used both for different reasons. I tend to record digitally because it is easier to work with at my home studio. I like analog for live performances because I feel like it is more organic.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I have been playing music with bands for 30 years. I have been recording music for over 20 years. I can't imagine not playing or recording music. I love being a part of different projects as they allow me to grow as a musician.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: I tend to gravitate towards blues, rock, country, and Americana genres. I am willing to try anything, however.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I don't have an ego about my parts. My main goal is to serve the song. Whatever it takes to make your song better is what I will deliver.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: I bring extra layers to your song. I try to fill in the gaps and make things sound fuller. I won't distract from the core of the song because I feel that wouldn't serve the song that you spent a lot of time crafting. I am here to enhance what you already have.

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

  12. A: I listen to a song several times to see what I can hear in my head for parts first. I then play along a few times before I record. Then I record a few takes after I am comfortable with my parts. I pick the best take and deliver it to the client.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I have a home studio that consists of an iMac, a 2 channel USB input device, and I record in LOGIC Pro. I have several effect pedals and a Fender Blues Deluxe. I also like to use amp models for flexibility when it is needed. I have a few favorite guitars including a Fender Strat, Fender Tele, Supro Comet lap steel, and a Fender Jazz bass.

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: I am a big fan of Dave Cobb. He really knows how to get great guitar tones and has produced some of my favorite albums.
