My job is to make you sound great by complimenting your voice and your song, and I have spent the last 23 years working on that very thing in Nashville studios and my own.

Please take a listen to my demonstration reel, included on this page. It includes examples from many genres to help you get an idea of my work. I am proficient in electric and acoustic guitars/fingerpicking and enjoy stacking both together in addition to all the other stringed instruments I own to make your project sound like a record.

TYPICAL DESCRIPTIONS PER SONG:

ELECTRIC GUITAR:
2 Rhythm Tracks Left & Right, 1 Instrumental Hook/Riff Track (intros, turnarounds, outro)

FULL PRO TREATMENT - AS MANY electric guitar "EAR CANDY" tracks needed.
INCLUDING: SLIDE, EBOW, BARITONE, CLEAN STEREO PAD SOUNDS, AMBIENT TEXTURES, Wah-Wah, ETC.

ACOUSTIC GUITAR (6-string):
2 Rhythm Tracks Left & Right

FULL PRO TREATMENT - as many acoustic tracks/stacks as needed.

BOUZOUKI
A great sound doubled with acoustic guitar melodies/hooks

MANDOLIN
Great for melodic lines and rhythm chunking.

    What can I say about Paul. As a Performing Musician or a Studio Player he is the easiest to work with and always brings his best game. No matter what project I had Paul work on he always delivered exactly what I needed and was a blast to work with! So as a Grammy and Emmy Award winning music producer I Highly recommend Mr Hagy! - Joe

    Paul is a phenomenal player. Trust in Paul to come up with concise, memorable and familiar parts for your music. Whatever the style is Paul has you covered. It is hard to find a well vetted, gigged and studio friendly guitarist but in Paul Hagy you have exactly that. Can't recommend him enough!

    Coming off of the show, American Idol, Paul was very instrumental in getting my debut record out. The creative genius he brought to each of my songs was phenomenal. He knew exactly what I was going for and delivered it with style, class, expertise and professionalism. It was a privelage to work with him, and I recommend him to anyone. He has a great attitude, and is an incredible guy all around!

    Paul was very essential when I recorded my debut album, titled, "Soon". Not only did he do all of the guitar tracks for me (except one), he has recorded other tracks for me on other projects I've produced. I highly recommend him. He's very professional, and I love his work!

    I've worked with Paul on two album projects and the process and results has been a dream. Paul is very conscientious and detailed in his sounds and adhering the to spirit of the song. I can't say enough about the professionalism Paul demonstrates as well as his musical abilities. Highly recommended from me. - Bruce
