johnnyproaol.com Posted May 9, 2000 Share Posted May 9, 2000 Hello, I'm the owner of a 16 track demo/project studio and I do mostly songwriter demos, (along with a few indie CD projects). Some of the stuff that I work on is very good and it's real rewarding to work with a songwriter and turn their "ideas" into a finished demo. But with the wheat comes the chaff. I have several songwriters that I work for who write mediocre songs,(at best) and are very defensive about doing the demos exactly the way they have written them. They won't take suggestions and usually have written the melodies so that no human can do them as written. Obviously this kind of work is not fun or rewarding to any extent and in the past, too much of this type of work has made me close down the studio for a length of time until I got back into it. Any thoughts on balencing out the work, or at least getting a better attitude towards it? Of course I'm too broke to turn the "Mediocre" work down, and those songwriters seem to pay better anyway. Whattya think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
