Guitar Tracks, Recorded in High Quality, for Your Music – Online Session Guitar Service
The guitar is an instrument like no-other. It can add extra dimensions to songs, bring electronic sample based music to life, launch revolutions, make grown men cry!
It’s a real ‘world builder’ of an instrument.
The guitar is my obsession, closely followed by the recording studio.
I currently have 2 private studio set-ups and use both analogue and digital recording platforms, plus a variety of amps, pedals and techniques to get the desired sound, flavours and impact to enhance YOUR music in the best way possible. (please see my full gear list below)
No matter if you’re a musician looking to add guitar parts, or a producer looking for a guitarist for ongoing projects, I can help. More importantly, I’d love to help!
How does this work?
Step Number 1… we need talk!
We can communicate via email, social media, Skype or even Phone (yes, a real voice!) whatever suits you. We can then discuss your songs, project and what it is you’re looking for. If you’re unsure, I have over 20 years of playing guitar in a variety of styles to help you build your vision.
It could be a simple acoustic track to add some weight, or something a little more cosmic!
Step Number 2… send me your music!
I will add my guitar parts and send you an MP3 preview back for your approval
Step Number 3… are you happy?
Do you want some changes or something a little different?
That’s okay! we work together until you are happy with the parts. (within reason!)
Once you are happy, I will send you an invoice payable by Paypal or Bank Transfer.
Once paid I will send you a Dropbox link to your Guitar tracks in AIFF, WAV or mp3 format to place into your mix. If you also want dry versions of the tracks to work with, that’s also possible.
Go on… How Much?
Probably not as much as you think! I work on project by project basis with simple projects starting at around £60 per track.
Let's talk Guitar parts...
