Session guitarist with studio

Mick Taras on SoundBetter

Passionate lover of acoustic guitars, dobro, banjo, mandolins, ukulele, cuban tres, resonators. My acoustic work can be heard on Neil Young " Storytone" (2014), on Shawn Colvin "The Starlighter" (2018), Matt Redman "These Christmas lights" (2016), "The day I met El Chapo" (Netflix). Bluegrass fanatic. listen to my last CD "Do the right thing".

My studio here in LA was built with guitars in mind. Over 40 different guitars. Electrics from hollow bodies to stats and telecasters and Gibsons. 12 strings. Mandolins, bouzuky, dobro, resonator, nylon, steel. Vintage amps all set up and ready to go. Only 2 channels in my studio but top of the line converters and preamp (AD2).
Although I have played on records and with artists of all styles, from salsa (Gloria Estefan) to Rock (Motels), from folk (Neil Young, Shawn Colvin) to Jazz (Paulette McWilliams); from country (John Rich) to Pop (Nick Lachey); from contemporary worship (Matt Reedman Charles Billingsley) to fusion (Melvin Davis), my heart really gets passionate for acoustic music. I am well versatile on acoustic guitar, mandolin, cuban tres, dobro, banjo, ukulele. That world is really my favorite world to be in. The acoustic world is where even the simplest part needs to be played right with the right sound. Specially folk ,bluegrass, americana and country.
I have a deep knowledge of protools and have produced 100s of records her eat my very own studio.
