Session Guitarist

Ronan Lyons on SoundBetter

Worked on original music for different artists ranging from Pop, Blues Jazz, Soul, Funk and more. Can produce professional guitar tracks using industry standard recording equipment. Easy to communicate with to ensure that you get the most out of your music.

I have been playing guitar for 16 years, over this time I have developed my sound leading me to explore different techniques allowing my tone to grow and be recognizable. With each recording session I will make sure to include all the details that the band or artists has given me to produce a well thought out piece of music, showcasing what the song is about.

I look forward to learning more about your projects and how I can help to get them to where you want them to be.

Interview with Ronan Lyons

  1. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  2. A: Always make sure you are in time with the click track.

  3. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  4. A: Rock, Blues, Pop, Indie

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Rhythm guitar is my strongest skill. By playing a good rhythm guitar section it keeps the tracking sounding full and prominent.

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

  8. A: Well thought out and planned tracks, so that they are recognizable within the song. When it comes to tone for the guitar track I make sure that I work on this a lot before starting the recording session so that when playing I know that everything is where it's meant to be.

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

  10. A: When working on music I like to listen to the track that I have been sent to work on a few times, so that I know the structure well and write down notes to help me identify where I can lock in my parts. Allowing them to sit well within the track. Listening to reference tracks is also part of my process as this helps with creativity and tone searching. Once I have done this I like to record scratch tracks of my guitar tracks and identify what went well and what didn't then send a copy of these to the artist for feedback before recording the final tracks.

A: Guitars: Fender Stratocaster, D'angelico Premiere SS, Epiphone Les Paul Pedalboard: MXR Dyna Comp, MXR Carbon Copy Delay, Strymon Flint, MXR Phase 45, tc electronics Sub n Up, tc electronics June 60, Dunlop Cry Baby Wah, Boss Blues Driver.

  16. A: I record the guitar tracks for the songs that the artist has requested to have guitar on. I play electric and acoustic guitar and enjoy playing a wide range of music, from Rock, Blues, Jazz, Pop, Funk, Soul, Alternative Rock, Indie and more.
