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

  12. A: Usually a client sends me a song or beat in some stage of the process and I record a couple of different suggestions for a bass track. If the client likes it I record a couple of extra variations after getting feedback. Clients usually find it helpful to have different levels of "busyness" to chose from or edit between.

  37. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  38. A: Don´t be afraid to ask! Music is a fun journey!
