I'm a working musician, making a living as a touring and session guitarist.
Influenced by guitar players that are best known for their unique feel and tone, such as Hendrix, Clapton, SRV, John Mayer and many great others, I consider my expertise to be in the blues and rocknroll genre, but also love and enjoy playing all sorts of styles from r&b, soul and funk to country, reggae etc.
I am also well experienced in playing slide guitar.
How does it work?
You send me your song, professional recording or a demo. I record the guitar tracks and send them back to you. I deliver in 5 days max. Then you can review my delivery and complete the order or ask for a revision if you want any modifications.
I record all tracks in my own home studio with high quality gear.
I use different guitars in my recordings, including:
A Fender strat
A semi-hallow Gretsch electric guitar
A PRS DGT model
A Martin OM-28 acoustic guitar
A resonator guitar(great for traditional blues and country)
A classical nylon strings guitar
I record electric guitar tracks through a 100 watt combo Marshall amp or a Fender custom deluxe reverb with an sm57 mic.
I record acoustic guitars using a Neumann TLM-103 condenser microphone.
Ultimately I'll do what ever is necessary to make your song sound as best as i can.
