Mixing Techniques For John Mayer

Here's a video where multi-platinum mixing engineer Manny Marroquin reveals a few of the mixing techniques he used for John Mayer's "I Don't Trust Myself". Manny is one of the most respected mixers around these days, and he's still one of the few that doesn't want for work despite tighter and fewer budgets (there's not many mixers that can say that).

In this video he talks about one of the main points that I stressed in the Mixing Engineer's Handbook, which is to "find the direction of the song, and build the song around it." One of the best pieces of advice he gives is "it's not how much you do, but when to leave it alone," which is usually something that only comes with experience.
