Takeshi Akimoto on SoundBetter

Please let me be a part of your music !! I strive to provide guitar parts that make it sound better !!

My name is Takeshi.
I'm here to offer remote guitar tracking.

I've started tracking guitar remotely in 2013.
Since then I've done quite a bit of remote sessions & projects.
Gear demos ( sound samples ), songwriting collaborations ( write a new section to a song then track guitar parts and insert / edit the section to the song for presentation ) and of course tracking guitar parts for a given song.

Although every session is different and always involve an certain amount of challenge, I enjoy the process of making good music.

Please let me know what kind of guitar parts would you like from me.
While I'll come up with my guitar parts for the song, I'd like to keep the communication open for feedback / suggestions which help to achieve good result.
I also welcome playing " provided written parts " if there are any instructions that came with the song.

I'd like to mention that unless otherwise requested, I'll provide my guitar tracks " DRY " ( usually NO EQ, Compression, Delay or Reverb ).
I'll provide separate " WET " track ( usually U2-ish Delay part etc ) if there's any, so the recipient can adjust the blend / balance or apply different ambience to the " DRY " track.

Please refer to the Audio Samples.
They are " mp3 " bounce from actual session.

Please let me know if there's anything that I could do.
I'm looking forward to be a part of your music !!

    I asked Takeshi to play whatever he felt would fit my song....acoustic / electric guitar. Sometimes I am more specific with musicians... but I heard his track on SoundBetter and just wanted HIS creativity.
    The guitar parts he recorded for me are AMAZING. Beautiful melodic phrases... he totally captured my musical style. I am thrilled with his musicianship. And, great communication.
    Clear and precise questions and answers. I will be hiring him to play on more of my songs.
