This is my second time working with Jimmy and it was a pleasure. I sent Jimmy an instrumental demo of the section I wanted him to work on, together with some instructions of just ideas along with some references. He interpreted exactly what I had in my mind and really gave the parts personality, expression and emotion. He really "gets" my music and really feels the songs. Beautiful playing and tones. Highly recommended.
I can honestly say I've found a new favourite guitarist...and now he's soloing on one of my songs! Amazing! I sent Jimmy a 30-second self-mixed track together with a YouTube video of a solo I liked. Jimmy understood exactly what I needed and wanted and delivering a solo with so much emotion, expression, and finesse along in the samvein of John Sykes! He exceeded all expectations. His tone and playing are absolutely stunning. I need to write more songs just so I can get him to solo for me again!

I’m very happy with Jimmy’s work. I sent him my basic solo idea and he turned it into a perfect sounding professional guitar solo in a short time at a cost-effective price. 100% recommended!
I was happy to work with Jimmy again. Very fast, professional, and skillful. He was able to take my references and ideas and expertly turn them into high quality guitar solos that fit the mood of my track perfectly.
My boy Jimmy K - absolutely recommend him - ultra fast/responsive, he delivered a choice of 3 stunning hollywodesque epic guitar god shreding solos like no other. Would definitely work again.
