JJ Villafane on SoundBetter

My one goal here is to make YOUR SONGS sound better. It's that simple! Whether you need a tight and simple rhythm guitar track, a guitar hook, or a soulful solo I'm here for you. I have the skills, the experience, the gear & the knowledge to make it happen!

Hello, my name is JJ, thank you for checking out my profile. I've selected some excerpts from sessions I've done and put them together into one file for you to listen to. I recorded all the guitars (both electric & acoustic) that you hear on each excerpt.

I've been playing guitar professionally for 17 years now. During this time I've been fortunate enough to work with incredibly talented people both on stage and in the studio. By serendipity, I've worked with many different genres and settings, but I tend to lean towards rock, blues, funk, and pop-infused music.

I pride myself in getting great guitar tones -both electric and acoustic-, writing catchy riffs/parts, and playing solos with a lot of feeling. I play what the song needs.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message.

  • #tbt to my first John Mayer ConcertAug 04, 2017

    Here is a little #tbt to my first John Mayer concert, and my first visit ever to Chicago. I wasn't sure I was gonna have time to see him during the summer so I flew all the way from Houston to see him. It just happened also that on the day I arrived, the Chicago Cubs had their opening season game after their world series title. Being a baseball fan, attending that game was a major treat!
