Session Guitar, FX Engineer

José Forero on SoundBetter

I like to find new tones with the guitar, to give a characteristic sound. I also like to experiment with all kins of effects pedals on the guitar as well as on other instruments. Very versatile like to improvise a lot.

I can play along with nearly any musical genere and give it a fresh an original sound. I do like to experiment and improvise a lot, but I'm versatile and if you've got something in mind I can stick with it; although Ill probably record an alternative version. I like to record lots of versions given different characters to the song to try out what sounds best. Ive worked all kinds of music makers from rock n roll bands to hip hop producers going through some techno psicodelia.
