I'm a Nashville-based session guitarist specializing in pop/rock, modern country, gospel/CCM, and ambient textures. I'm university educated in music and have real-world experience. Playing guitar is my full-time gig...and I get to do it in Music City USA!

I'm available to record acoustic guitar, electric guitar, nylon string guitar, baritone guitar, lap steel, banjo, mandolin and dobro tracks. Whether you need a single guitar track or several layers of guitars, I have you covered. I always play for the song with great tone and creative parts that support the vocal.

For electric guitar tracks, I can deliver direct tracks for re-amping along with the amped versions. Just let me know when placing your order.

    Andrew replied to our job really quickly and actually met our deadline early. He understood exactly what we were looking for and the end result was amazing. We will be using his track during the first dance at our wedding. Thank you.

    I returned to him for electric guitars on the song he'd earlier done acoustic guitars for. His style and his feel go so well with my song! Totally in love with his arrangement.

    Came to Andrew with a rough track and a rough guitar idea. I asked him to write a more creative guitar line then I could. Got a bunch of great recordings back in no time that will make the track shine. He's a true professional. Thanks Andrew!

Interview with Andrew Timothy

Analog or digital and why?
Both! I love vintage guitars and amps (I have a 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb!), but I also love the convenience and flexibility of new digital guitar technology. I've been using a Fractal Audio Axe FX 2 for the past 3 years live and in the studio with amazing results. We're living in the new golden age of guitar gear.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I'll deliver professional quality guitar tracks with great tone that fit the mood of the song. If you're not happy, I'm not happy.
What do you like most about your job?
Getting to do what I love for a living.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A lot of people don't understand that being a full-time musician is hard work around the clock. More discipline is required than most people think.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What type of guitar sounds are you going for? Do you have any reference tracks or artists you'd like me to check out?
Can you share one music production tip?
Trust your ears, not your eyes.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I'm more or less a pop/rock player with a background in classical and jazz studies. Most of my sessions are in the pop, country, singer/songwriter, CCM/worship and rock genres.
What's your strongest skill?
Creating guitar parts that support the overall message and dynamic of a song. I've learned over the years to think like a producer when arranging and layering guitar tracks.
What do you bring to a song?
Life. Tone. Support. Textures.
What's your typical work process?
Once my chart is written out and the session is set up, I'll start building guitar tracks. I typically start with the choruses, then work my way through the rest of the song...verses, intro/outro, solo sections, etc. I do a little mixing as I go, mainly panning and light EQ. This helps me keep the bigger picture in mind and makes it easier to hear if more tracks are needed to fill out the arrangement.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
My favorite session players are (in no particular order) Michael Landau, Tim Pierce, Tom Bukovac, Brent Mason, Allen Hinds, Kenny Greenberg, Michael Thompson, Paul Jackson Jr
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Acoustic and eletric guitar overdubs.
