GUITARIST FOR HIRE
Need guitar parts for your album, EP, track, demo? Looking for a live/substitute guitarist? Look no further, I am your man!
As a session player, I have worked professionally with several artists, bands, projects, local television stations and advertising companies.
I offer both electric and acoustic guitar duties, as well as backing vocals. I’m proficient in a wide range of popular music genres, including rock, metal, pop, blues, funk, folk and certain jazz styles.

Click on the ‘Gear’ tab above for information on my studio and live setup.
You can book me as a studio musician. I can record either from home or at an external studio. Please note that if you would like me to come to your studio, travel expenses will be charged.
What do I offer?
– Guest solos and leads;
– Rhythm guitar tracks (both electric and acoustic);
– Compositions from scratch;
– Backing/additional vocals.
Would you like me to play on your music? Then please read the following carefully.
What I need from you:
- A tempo track (via MIDI file);
- 2 stereo exports for each of your songs (export from zero) in MP3 format in high quality:
a) One stereo track containing the rhythm section only – drums/percussion/bass;
b) One stereo track for everything else;
- I record using Cubase Studio 4, usually in 16Bit 44100Khz format. If you want something else, please specify;
- If there are specific chord shapes, scales or stylistic references for your material you want me to apply, please specify.
PLEASE NOTE: I can work without the pointers above, learn the song by ear and do anything by myself from scratch. However, they can be helpful to get my playing closer to what YOU want to hear.
If you require previews of my work on your material before I deliver my final recordings, I can provide these, but please specify so in our original agreement.
Also, if there is a time limit or specific deadline, be sure to let me know.
Finally, I can send you my takes with clean tone (DI) in case you want to re-amp and or I can send you my amped sound using microphones, cabinets, etc.
You can also book me for gigs and rehearsals. As a live musician, I regularly play clubs, festivals, theaters, radio studios, parties, ceremonies and weddings. I am equally comfortable in all settings.
I am a fast learner, able to learn a setlist with short notice and have a good musical memory. I have my own professional gear and am able to read music and charts.
Pricing is negotiable, depending on the type of job and workload – i.e. writing a solo for a single track, recording an entire album/EP, learn and perform a setlist, etc. We will address this in our original agreement.

I look forward to working with you!
