Ben McLeod on SoundBetter

Send me your songs and I will play guitar on them!

My name is Ben McLeod. I play guitar in a band called All Them Witches. I have been playing guitar for over 20 years, and have vast experience in many genres.

I specialize in rock, blues, country and metal. I also play a lot of slide guitar.

Send me your Protools/Logic sessions, and you will get them back with my guitar work on them. Easy as that.

Lets make some records!

Cheers
