Hey everyone! Do you need some help or ideas for writing some pop punk songs or other rock style guitar riffs or need some vocal melodies?? I can help!!
Ive been playing pop punk for over 20 years now and im looking to help anyone out there that needs help writing full pop punk songs or vocal melodies/lyrics !
While I can not mix or master anything, I can record a clean guitar signal so you can re-amp the guitar in a studio setting or I can send you a plug in version of a few amps I have already which include Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier/ Friedman Butterslax/ 6505/ evh iii/ jcm800 and a few orange amps also.
The $50 guitar track price includes 2 tracks so you can pan them left and right. They will be slightly different (not copy and pasted) to sound more real and like its two guitarists playing.
As far as guitars go I can use : Fernandes Strat with a Seymour Duncan invader bridge pickup / EC1000 with Fishman P90's/ EC1000 with EMG'S/ Fender Strat with Seymour Duncan JB bridge pick up (the Green Day Guitar).
I uploaded some of my bands music along with a very basic guitar track showing the UNMIXED tones of the amp sims (recorded with the FGN guitar).
Im not looking to over charge anyone, my whole intention here is to just help people out !
Feel free to check my band out, link below! I write all the guitar parts and all the vocal melodies.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
