  4. A: I have been playing bass for 10 years now. I started in highschool and thinks just started happening. From school bands to college, to working in clubs to a few international tours.

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

  6. A: I think people underestimate the potential there is in bass lines. I think today lots of guys are looking at the bass as a solo instrument, which is very cool, but I think they are forgetting all the interesting ways there are to add to a song as a supporting instrument.

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

  8. A: I always like to listen to a few reference songs, that way I can better know what they are looking for. For me this approach works better than academic concepts.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: In my opinion, my strongest skill is to tailor a bass line to every song. I like to to look for inspiring ways to play, from picking, palm-muting, register, fills, all I can do to make each bass line as unique and musical as possible.

  11. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  12. A: Right now I am doing session work and playing concerts in my area.

  13. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  14. A: Daniel Uribe, great musician and great guy to work with, highly recommend him.

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

  16. A: The artists that inspire me the most are The Beatles, The Doors, Tame Impala, Donny Hathaway, Brad Mehldau, Jungle, Danger Mouse, Robert Glasper, Fania All Stars just to name a few. I would say my favorite bass players are: Willie Weeks, Larry Grenadier, Pino Palladino, Paul Mcartney, Charles Mingus, Salvador Cuevas among others.

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

  18. A: The most common work I do is commercial music, where I'm asked to record a preconceived bassline or to create one on the spot always looking after the intention of the song.
