Rodrigo Louraço on SoundBetter

I am a musician from Portugal and i play several intruments like guitar,bass and piano. I love to make and produce music. For me a music album is a piece of art and it shouldnt be a copy of another album. Above all i apreciate original material no matter the style of music. I always look foward to work with diferent people.

I have been playing guitar for 23 years and for me is wonderfull to be able to do it everyday. Love to make and paticipate on records. I think nowadays is easier to make records because of all the technology and i m not against that!
For me music is artwork, a form of expression, when the music is good there seems to be a recognition by almost everyone.
I want to make as much music as i can and work with diferent people , people that enjoy music and want to make they´re own.

    Rodrigo is the nicest guy to work with and his ability is exceptional. He even added an extra part for me at the last minute

    If you ask Rodrigo for a cup of soup, he will give you a gourmet dinner. If you ask him for a couple of guitar parts, he might give you 10 if he hears something. Stellar guitarist, excellent recordings. I'm gonna hire Rodrigo to do more work in the future, and so should you.

  4. Review by Dan Dave Larson

    Rodrigo is an absolute champion and complete guitar beast. Ask him for a glass of water, he'll hand you a waterfall. Completely went above and beyond what I had asked for with some extra guitar parts. Not only did I get what I asked for, I got more. Dude didn't just dunk it, he dunked it, then did a jump to high five the sun. Expert playing, stellar recordings, all to spec, his timing is immaculate.

    What are are you continuing to read this for? Hire Rodrigo!

    Rodrigo made a customized prog-metal song the way I like it. Great guitar skills and the willing to make the song 'till I'm satisfied has made him exactly the songwriter I was looking for.

  14. Review by Dimitri M.

    Great skills and very helpful!

  15. Review by Maria K.

    Rodrigo is one of those rare gems who offer professional results without an ego. Precision, quality, affordability and reliability are his top traits. We will keep him as one of our main remote session guitarists for our punk/rock/metal productions. He delivered what he promised and gave us plenty of options. 5 stars well deserved.

  16. Review by Kieran R.

    Good communication. Good musician. Delivered on time.

    What a professional and what an amazing musician...! Needed a basic guitar track and he provided 6 great tracks combining solos and rhythms, electric and acoustic... made the song so much more than I expected... Thank you Rodrigo.

  18. Review by John R.

    Rodrigo is quite an amazing musician. His guitar work is technical, soulful and emotional. He's a mind reader as well... he knew exactly what I was looking for and made my music better with his talent. Thank you, we will meet again.
