Excellent guitarist. Worked with me until the track was what I was looking for.
Very easy to work with and professional. Will work with you until you're 100% satisfied. I was very pleased with the results, and will recommend him to others.
Eduardo is a fantastic and versatile guitarist. His solos are emotive and full of good ideas - he knows how to be catchy and technical when playing. Moreover, he has a set of very good tones and knows how to use them to obtain a high-level result. A true professional with many skills. Highly recommended.
Interview with Eduardo Marcolino (Eddie)

Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
