Question Arrangement

Hi Russell,
thank you very much for this whole experience!! :-) I really enjoyed reading each single one of your posts and I am a big fan of your work since my hands first touched a D'Angelo Brown Sugar many years ago.

I always wondered how D'Angelo approaches his songs. How does he build up his arrangements and how big is your influence on fading in/muting instruments? Do you use protools to work out the mutes/breakes or are they done real-time by the session musicians? Does the decisionmaking happen prior tracking?

Thank you very much for sharing your world with us!
