Rewarded acoustic guitar player and innovative composer. Take your music to the next level with fresh, innovative and unexpected guitar tracks or stunning music arrangement tricks.
I'm Marco Ielpo, professional guitarist and composer, working as a freelance musician for years. I can help you improving your music in different ways, both as a guitarist and as a composer/arranger:
• I'm specialized in acoustic guitar, and my guitar tracks sound unexpected, modern, fresh and extremely charming, due to the different techniques and harmony tricks I can use on my guitar. Though with the acoustic guitar I'm in my comfort zone, I can record charming electric guitar tracks as well.
• I can compose an instrumental track for you in the style you ask me for, or can add some stunning arrangement tricks to your song, to take that to the next level.
