I am a musician from Portugal and i play several intruments like guitar,bass and piano. Im 35 years old and i love to make and produce music. For me a music album is a piece of art and it shouldnt be a copy of another album. Above all i apreciate original material no matter the style of music. I always look foward to work with diferent people.
I have been playing guitar for 15 years and for me is wonderfull to be able to do it everyday. Love to make and paticipate on records. I think nowadays is easier to make records because of all the technology and i m not against that!
For me music is artwork, a form of expression, when the music is good there seams to be a reconition by almost everybody.
I want to make as much music as i can and work with diferent people , people that enjoy music and want to make they´re own.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Rodrigo is one of those rare gems who offer professional results without an ego. Precision, quality, affordability and reliability are his top traits. We will keep him as one of our main remote session guitarists for our punk/rock/metal productions. He delivered what he promised and gave us plenty of options. 5 stars well deserved.
Good communication. Good musician. Delivered on time.
What a professional and what an amazing musician...! Needed a basic guitar track and he provided 6 great tracks combining solos and rhythms, electric and acoustic... made the song so much more than I expected... Thank you Rodrigo.
Rodrigo is quite an amazing musician. His guitar work is technical, soulful and emotional. He's a mind reader as well... he knew exactly what I was looking for and made my music better with his talent. Thank you, we will meet again.

Does a very great job of playing the guitar for your song. He matches the intesity. And he even makes the song better. This is one of those times where I use the phrase "thanks a lot" without being sarcastic.
