Ben Harmsen on SoundBetter

Hello, my name is Ben Harmsen and I'm a guitar player from Detroit, Michigan. I know how to give your project guitar playing that "pops." Whether it's tight rhythm playing or aggressive, in-your-face leads, I can deliver the guitar sound you're looking for, and I'd welcome the chance to play on your project.

I find it very rewarding to bring other's artistic visions to life. For several years I've played live and in the studio as a guitarist for-hire, specializing in learning the songs of others and delivering a great performance. I spend a lot of time making sure my playing fits the song and the needs of the songwriter. I can work as either lead or rhythm guitarist, and play both roles effectively.

Currently I play guitar in a few groups:
Halloween: The Heavy Metal Horror Show
The Zoo: Scorpions Tribute Band
The Corduroy Job

All I need is your project with scratch guitar tracks. We'll discuss what sort of sound you want, then I'll provide a recording using my equipment, as well as a dry guitar track if you'd rather re-amp the guitar yourself. I'm happy to do revisions to make sure you get the best guitar track possible.

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.
