Too enthused

    I've completed 11 songs and planning to record a demo. I'm not the best guitar player so I called a person to play for me by the hour. I told him we need to get together and go over before going to the studio. He mentioned co-writing and wanted to record at a friends studio. I explained I only needed a player for some rhythm. He mentioned being the producer of my songs. Am I being taken for a ride?

    I could tell you, but then I'd be your lawyer!

    Kinda thought that would be the case.

    Decide your role. Are you the producer? If the songs are done why would you need a co-writer? The musician you hire should be a mercenary who does a great job following your instructions in the most timely way that he/she can.

    As a (former) session player sometimes the producer tanked what I thought was my best stuff in favor of things I thought really sucked. But it's his dime and his time.

    Look for another player unless you are looking for a collaborator.
