Session Guitarist

Phil Capone on SoundBetter

With decades of recording experience in professional studios, plus producing audio for popular guitar magazines and my own tuition books, I know how to create and record great guitar parts. I’ll treat your project as if it was my own and do my very best to create the best possible parts for your music.

I’m fluent in many styles: rock, blues, Americana, soul, funk, reggae, jazz, fusion, ambient, and country. Whether you need a simple strummed acoustic, layered guitars to create a musical tapestry, or just a few tasteful slide licks, I look forward to working with you on your project.

I use Logic Pro X and Wavelab Pro 10. I generally record direct via a Little Labs DI box, but I also own vintage amps including a Fender Deluxe Reverb and Fender Vibro Champ. DI tracks can also be provided for re-amping later should you desire.

My amp software includes Scuffham Amps S-Gear, Blue Cat’s Axiom, Softube Amp Room, Native Instruments Guitar Rig, and Brainworx Bassdude (Fender Bassman emulation).

Top quality condenser mics are used via a Focusrite ISA Two preamp. DI guitar is also passed through the ISA transformer for a little extra magic.

Outboard effects (external effects can be applied in Logic and Wavelab) include a pair of DBX 160A compressors, a pair of Klark Teknik EQP-KT’s, and a Joe Meek SC2.2 compressor.
