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

  14. A: If I am doing a full production project for a client I usually start with a vocal recording they have sent me. I then generate a few different ideas for the instrumental portion of their song, and send it back to them. Once we have decided on the general track idea (melodies, chord progressions, types/amount of insturments, arrangement, etc) I then go and record and produce the full instrumental, which typically consist of at least one guitar, a bass guitar, drums, and sometime keyboard/synths. After sending the production back and forth to the client we decide on the final touches, and then I finalize the mix and finally master the track.
