Mike, I'm a working player and I've just started to get more into recording with songwriters. My question is, how does one determine who gets charged what? I mean, my wife's jazz stuff is free, an unknown person who calls on the phone is a negotiated, hopefully high fee, but the middle ground of songwriters that I play for consistantly. I often find that asking for, or taking money from people that I know is harder than with people I don't. Any ideas how I might deal with this situation? Thanks.
