I play both guitar and bass. My guitar style is halfway between David Gilmour and Mike Oldfield. I mainly dedicate myself to Progressive Symphonic Rock as well as soundtracks, but I collaborate with other artists and styles too. Best regards.
If you want a guitar for your music that plays melodies instead of learned-by-heart scales, feel free to contact me. Your music will be truly original, without all-the-same predefined phrasing. I offer you both quality and warmth in all my arrangements. In addition, you can choose between Fender and Gibson sounds, though I also have a marvelous Carvin guitar for a clean sound. Without forgetting the electric bass guitar in case you need it too, since I have several Music-Mans.

Interview with Coché Vil
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: On a soundtrack for a film as well as on my own progressive rock project and some other works with several collaborators.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I think this case is similar to photography. One day, digital will have so much quality that it will totally prevail compared to analog. Meanwhile, I choose analog, of course.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Total satisfaction
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Taking my time to listen to what I’ve done gives me a great satisfaction.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: If I made something wrong, I would take advantage of it, since I always learn from my mistakes to never make them again.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I first ask them about their taste and the style that they prefer, and I also want to know if they prefer a close clean sound or a farther sound with some drive.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: It’s difficult today to listen to something absolutely new. I believe that I produce new melodic lines or, at least, not common riffs learnt at school.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A guitar, of course, better if acoustic, and an electric one too. A laptop. A cell phone. The fifth one maybe an amp :D
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Apart from playing the guitar, I have also played the bass with different professionals of the music scene for many years. Currently I am working in my own projects.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I suppose that I come from the seventies, and this is reflected somehow.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I suppose that I’d like to work with any artist whose style I feel attracted to.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If your work sounds well after listening to it in several systems such as the car, using cheap headphones, etc. and, over all, if you still want to listen to it again and again without interrupting it, this will mean that you’ve reached the right point.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: What I like the most is symphonic or progressive rock, but I also collaborate in songs that can be classified as pop. I also create soundtracks.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: To make melodic guitar solos that are one hundred per cent original.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I’ve been told in several occasions that I bring them to life. It must be like that.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Mainly I listen to the music a couple of times and let myself be carried by imagination. After I take my guitar, but never before that.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work with DAW Cubase 10. Anyway, the studio is something that is continuously changing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: As a guitar player I get inspiration mainly from David Gilmour, without leaving out Jeff Beck or multi-instrumentalist Mike Oldfield. As a producer and composer, I can’t forget Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: To fill with music those parts that are not vocal but demand good melodies, not a simple stuff.
