  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: Getting to be a part of different projects and adding artistry to them

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: "When is it gonna be ready???" and i say when the music tells us it´s ready

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: That it´s "just recording music"

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What do you need? I´m here for you!!

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

  20. A: Always try to be as clear as possible in terms of needs but always in a context of freedom and respect

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: I would take a Gibon B-25 acoustic guitar, a Fender Telcaster, a midi controller, a computer and a fine pair of headphones

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

  24. A: I started touring in 2012 so a i have a solid 8 years career. I worked touring and recording with several important artists of my country

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I believe i´m an all around guitar player but more focused on the music (the harmony and the melodies) than on the virtuosism. I find more interesting the chance of creating beutiful music more than the feeling of a competition between coleagues.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: John Mayer. Because i think he reunites many qualities that i like in an artist. He´s a great guitar player, a great singer and a great lyricist. All of his songs have a clear message for the listener and invites to think about it. I believe he´s one of the greatest artists of this era

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Less is more

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

  32. A: I usually work on pop tunes. More "human" played music so to say instead of more electronic things. Pop, folk, country, bluesy stuff

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I believe that besides the musical aspects my strongest skill it´s to try me best to understand the needs of each client in order to get the sound that they hear on their mind

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

  36. A: I always try to bring a disctintive sound, hook, melody etc for every song. Sometimes it´s easier than other but i feel it´s a good thing to do to make at least a little difference every time

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

  38. A: I get the song and have a good chat with the client in order to really get the feeling of the road to take to make a good job on each track, wheter it needs 10 layers of guitars or just one simple acoustic track

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a professional recording studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, so i work with the highest quality standars. I have really good instruments (all detailed in the gear highligts) and really good mics, all tracked in a professionally isolated room

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

  42. A: I feel inspired from both old school and new tunes. The Beatles have a undeniable influence on every musician but nowadays also John Mayer, The Strokes or Daft Punk have it, just to name a few. So i get inspiration from every music that´s made with heart, soul and also mind.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: When working in my own studio i usually receive a song with just a piano/guitar and a voice and then from that point i start building what i feels the songs needs to be completed from the point of view of the instruments i play and from a producer point of view
