James Lane on SoundBetter

I am a multi instrumentalist specializing in Lead guitar. I play Rock, Metal, Blues, Country and Classical. I’ve been writing, recording and playing guitar for over 15 years with music on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.

What a better time to make some tunes!

If you’re looking for an electric guitar piece, some rhythm tracks or a lead solo, I would love to contribute to your music. I’m influenced by Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Joe Walsh, Marty Friedman and Jason Becker to name a few. From the ear catching to the subtle. A blistering lead, or a tender classical piece. Whether the song calls for an epic minute long solo, or a quick interlude, I’m ready to elevate your music.

Here’s my approach:
For solos I’ll record three takes, for solos with harmonies, I’ll record 5 takes. I’ll send you dry DI tracks for re-amping, and I’ll send you processed tracks using the industry standard amp sims and VSTs or a number of live amps, including Marshalls, Peaveys and Fenders recorded with the tried and true Shure SM57. I’ll tailor the lead solo to serve the song, with any revisions included.

For leads and fills throughout the whole song, Ill record three to four takes, depending on what you would like.

For rhythm tracks, I’ll record four takes dry and processed so you can layer, double and comp. We’ll keep in touch based on what the song calls for, you can let me know the level of complexity you would like the tracks to be, tone and style. Revisions included.

Check out my solo samples I have shred solos, melodic solos, ballad and country solos.
