R.G.Deguire on SoundBetter

I'm a guitarist & composer from France, Paris. I specialized in pop-rock music and I'd love to work with you. I have a US colored sound (low-medium spectrum) and I pay a particular attention to the vibe of my takes.

I can provide D.I takes (with different effects or dry for re-amp) or I can record directly on a local studio through my Mesa-Boogie (for a huge and warm sound) or on a Fender Blues Deluxe (if you're looking for a more vintage sound)
For an extra-cost, I can also record at a Pro studio with my sound engineer to enhance the result (API/Manley preamps, twin amp, Vox AC30..)
I'm always looking for intelligent and tasteful treatments to serve the song rather than technical performance.
For acoustic I usually play finger-picking technic which bring smooth percussive effects. (nice for neo-pop soul track for instance)
I will work hard to get the best result you can expect for your own track.

    It was so easy to work with Romaine on this song. He indulged my desire to wait until the vocal track was finished before we committed to the bass. His playing was so musical that it all made sense in the end and we didn't need to change anything.

    Romain could not have been easier to work with! Very professional and easy going, he gave me the perfect amount of guidance and creative space to get the job done. Looking forward to working with him again! Highly recommend him!

    Romain could not have been easier or more enjoyable to work with. He gave me a clear overall idea of what he was looking for on the song, and did something I truly appreciate: offered a couple of specific musical ideas (which were excellent, and I used), but then trusted me to do what he hired me to do. The song is great, too. Thanks, Romain!
