I'm a professional session-guitarist and singer, working for some of Italy's top-selling artists, on tour, in the studio and in TV Shows. Emotions are my goal when it comes to music. Looking forward to make some music together!
Laying down tracks is one of the things I love the most.
During my career I got to experiment a lot with guitar tracking in a variety of genres and came up with a personal approach when recording and layering guitar tracks.
Wether it's sticking to the original arrangement or changing the mood of the tune, tracking is a favorite of mine.
I graduated with honors from the "Arrigo Boito" Conservatory of Parma in Modern Electric Guitar and I specialize in Electric and Acoustic Guitar, mainly in the Pop/Rock environment all the way through Jazz, R&B, Metal, Blues & more.
I can provide a variety of sounds and flavors to your tune, choosing gear accordingly to your requirements and the mood of the song.I also provide a DI track for re-amping when it comes to electrics.
Fluent communication and fast turnaround time assured.

I was a pleasure to working with Eugenio! Great guy, fast turnaround, and super high quality guitars with a fantastic sound!
Looking forward to working with him on other songs.
I have worked with Eugenio on many occasions (tours and recording sessions) and have always been extremely impressed by his work ethic and wonderful taste in his playing. It’s not a coincidence that he’s the choice of many top chart artists here in Italy ;)
One of the best guitarplayer around!
Super professional and super easy to work with!
Interview with Eugenio Cattini
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both of them. Each one has better applications depending on the situation and the requirements.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: If there's one thing I can promise to my clients is to put heart and soul in every track. Working on someone else's tunes really is a deep commitment for me.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Feel free to dig deep in requests if you're looking for something specific. My job is to transform your words into music.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've always been into music. My dad played keyboards and Hammond organ and introduced me to music when I was really young. At 6 I wanted to play drums, at 10 I was playing my first show in front of hundreds of people, at 13 I started studying guitar and at 20 I was touring Europe with bands and at 21 I was touring with some of the top-selling artists in Italy. I graduated with honors at the Conservatory when I was 26 and here we are. I signed up to SoundBetter at 27.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Stay true to the idea that drives the song. No matter if that means to build or destroy boundaries. This idea is hopefully what the listener will perceive at first.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I normally operate in the pop-rock area.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I believe that versatility is what got me in so many gigs and in so many musical environments. Listening carefully and understanding your customer's needs is what I believe being the strongest skill in a session musician. Its' about bringing smiles to their faces and this is what I try to achieve all the time.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Having spent years on big stages and in the studio and playing guitar other people's songs, I got to ask myself this question a lot of times. Emotion is what I'm after all the time. I tend to look for what moves me inside when making musical choices, even when playing music genres that I'm not very familiar with.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Tim Pierce is the guy behind a lot of tracks by artists I've toured with, so I got to study and understand his arrangements, use of effects and so on. I may refer to him as my main inspiration when it comes to studio work. I grew up listening to Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Jimi Hendrix though, so they are and will always be a huge influence in my playing. I always try to keep it personal nevertheless.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I normally receive an instrumental track without guitars on it and a separate guitar reference track. I typically listen to the whole thing and then get into the tune mentally, trying to understand my client's needs and wishes. I then lay down the tracks and most of the time provide a number of alternatives to the customer, all named and labeled properly.
