Electric Guitar Tracks For Your Song! UK based Professional Guitar Player with recording/studio and international touring experience.

I love writing and adding guitar parts to an artist or songwriter's music and working with the client to reach the sound or part they have in mind!

Tracks featuring my guitar playing have had airplay on worldwide radio including BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and local BBC radio which also includes live sessions on BBC stations.

I've worked, played with & joined on stage many of my heroes including: Martin Barre (Jethro Tull), Wishbone Ash & many more.

I have been nominated twice for a British Blues Award in 2012 & 2013, 'Young Artist Award'. I am also a Fret King Guitars & Blackstar Amps endorsee.

As a producer I've worked with several well respected musicians including members of 10cc, Jethro Tull, Gary Moore.

I specialise in Rock, Blues & Progressive music.

    Andrew is a pleasure to work with. He has a great ear towards getting the right sound for songs and is very accomplished and technically proficient. We worked together on a song that was eventually played on a BBC radio station and Andrew’s playing was one of the ‘wow’ factors of the finished product.

Interview with Andrew Pipe

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: Rock, Blues, Prog and just about everything else!

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Melodies and feel.

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: Good guitar part ideas, ones that fit the vibe and feel of the song. Always looking for melodies in guitar solos if a solo is needed.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: The client sends me the track as a WAV, I will listen and get the overall feel and vibe or the song. Talk to the client what they would like in terms of parts, solos etc. I will then import the track in to Logic and will record my guitar parts, then send back the guitar tracks as isolated WAV files.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: Melodic guitar players that have great feel and play for the song, but also aren't afraid to take centre stage when needed!
