I will write interesting bass lines that compliment your songs - don't you hate it when bassists play just the root notes? Genres: metal, rock, pop. Slapping, tapping, weird time signatures, not a problem.

I've been playing bass in rock and metal bands for over 15 years and I have tons of recording experience (I also have a music theory degree from my classical piano training years). I generally play with my fingers but I'll use a pick if it makes the song sound better.

You can send me scores/tabs or if you don't have any, I can work everything out by ear and you can give me as much or as little direction as you like. In the end, I can send you the scores/tabs of the bassline I write in PDF format (or a Guitar Pro or MuseScore file) for an extra $10.

I am also happy to provide a video recording but the price will have to be agreed separately for each individual case, depending on the length and difficulty of the song (somewhere between $40-80).

If your song is longer than 4 minutes, please understand that we will have to agree on additional payment, depending on the song, around $15 per extra minute.

Just get in touch to discuss your requirements. If you'd like me to work on multiple songs, I can offer you a discount!

I started as a pianist when I was 8 and I taught myself to play the guitar when I discovered rock and roll at 13. A few years after that, bass became my passion which until now (maaany years later) I call my "main" instrument.

My personal progressive metal project is called Emity Trap if you want to check my original stuff.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

  1. Review by Tony C.

    This was my second time working with Maria, and she once again did a wonderful job. This song was one that mostly needed some refining and I think she fulfilled that need very well while adding a bit of interest and flavor to some areas. Highly recommended!

    Super cool riffs for a rock tune, highly skilled and definitely keeps the beat going! Very much recommended!

    I worked with Maria on a Melodic metal song where I was having trouble coming up with ideas for the bass that made the song better, rather than just following the low note progression on the guitar. I reached out to Maria and she did a wonderful job adding some sections that elevated the whole composition while also playing very tight. In particular, her use of some harmonics in a soft section really added to the atmosphere and mood in a way I would't have considered.

    I highly recommend her!

    Maria is an amazing bassist who can take any type of song and bring it to another level. She is professional, talented and has a quick turn around time. One of the best bassists out there!
