Approaching New Record

Hi Bruce,

You have a very balanced and focused attitude about production. I'd guess that a lot of what you do comes from how you approach a project. I'm wondering what your very first steps are when you come on a new project. What's the first thing you ask the artist, or discuss with him/her/them? Do you have a set approach to preparing for tracking, in terms or rehearsal or your preparation, or do you just dive right in? Every session is different of course, but I'd love to hear how you set the more "psychological" stage so that you and the artist can work most creatively.
