Interview with Jukka Haavisto

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

  2. A: Bass player plays the sound. Give him/her the possibility to make the best sound that is needed.

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

  4. A: Strong bass line. If there is room for little virtuoso harmonics and fills, I''m the player you're looking for.

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

  6. A: If there is no sheet music I will make a sheet for me if the music is complex enough. Usually there is no need for that. I will listen the material several times and then I start to play with that. If there is no special orders I will play tow or three different kinds bass lines and ask which is the way producer wants.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
