Craig Bonno on SoundBetter

Hey! My name is Craig Bonno. Last name pronounced, Bun-oh. I started playing guitar in 1996, & became a guitar instructor in 2003.

Pricing ranges depending on the project. I am available to provide you with guitar tracks for all genres of music. I specialize in electric guitar, metal, solos, & lead guitar melodies. I am also available for acoustic/classical guitar tracks, bass guitar, & drum programming. If you need a guitar track, guitar solo, a complete song or a jingle, I can work with you to get you what you need. I try to give my music that hook that will be stuck in your head.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.
