Session Guitarist

Tim Erickson on SoundBetter

I've been doing studio work since I was a kid back in '86, and I had the good fortune to learn from some very talented and knowledgeable top pros in Southern California in the 80's, and in Seattle in the 90's. I have always worked harder and faster than other guys I knew, with my emphasis being about playing creatively & for the song!

I have played a broad range of Rock, Hard Rock, Blues based Rock, Funk Rock, Classic Rock, and mixed style since I started playing in the early 80's. I place equal importance on playing with feel & attitude, making each note count, making sure a part is delivered cleanly and professionally, and breathing life into each part. I can come at a song from a variety of angles stylistically, and working creatively in the zone is something I have always excelled at. I have extensive experience with layering serval guitar tracks, or straight forward raw approach rhythm guitars, melodic guitar solos, fiery solos, and harmony guitars. I grew up influenced by Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch, Neal Schon, Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Warren DeMartini, Jake E Lee, Billy Gibbons, Joe Perry, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Nile Rodgers, to name a few, so stylistically I learned several styles, as well as blending those styles which produced some unique and memorable tracks over the years. If you need 80's Rock tracks, I'm your guy, Classic 70's, or Blues based rock, or something Funky with a fiery solo, I'm your guy, and I always put everything I have into a project!
