Recording

guitars_300x400I love recording – whether tracking with a live band or doing guitar overdubs, either in your studio or remotely in mine. Let me show you what I can bring to your project with great tones and musical ideas that enhance your creative vision.

For online sessions, clients typically send me a stereo WAV or AIF file (with tempo notated), but I can also work with complete session files from Pro Tools, Logic, Digital Performer, Live or Reason.

Charts are appreciated but optional; if you don’t have one, I’ll transcribe and notate the tune for my own use during recording. I will send you an mp3 or AAC rough mix of the song with my guitar parts, and I will gladly make one or two rounds of revisions/additions until you are satisfied with the results.

Once I have received payment (you can use PayPal) I will send you the final full-resolution guitar tracks (WAV/AIF) via DropBox or your preferred delivery method.

Please contact me to discuss your project.
