Interview with Eduardo Marcolino (Eddie)
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I don't do anything without giving 100% to it. If I think something is not good enough, I will redo it.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been playing the guitar for more than 20 years, mostly doing original music.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: For guitar solos, I like to play with a "bluesy" feel, even if it's straight rock or pop songs. For rhythm, I like to get "funky" whenever possible.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: High level guitar playing, with a lot of feel. Tight, in tune, and with high quality sound.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording guitar solos and rhythm guitar tracks for songs or soundtracks.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Home studio with high quality electric guitars and effects that I run directly to my audio interface.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First, I communicate with the client to know exactly what they want from me in terms of sound and arrangement. Then, I will listen to the track several times and play along, trying to find the best way to play each part. Finally, I actually record the guitar tracks a few times, meticulously choosing the best takes to send the client for approval.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Melodic and emotional guitar solos.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you think you can do better, it's still not good enough.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Find the best ones and hire them!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: If I had to choose one: digital, because of the great ammount of possibilities with not that many pieces of gear. Current technology allows us to sound awesome with digital effects. But I still use analog overdrive and distortion.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Mark Knopfler, Gary Moore, Eric Clapton, Larry Carlton, Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Robben Ford, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson, John Mayer, Pat Metheny, Eddie Van Halen, and many more!
