An excellent and versatile guitarist providing really great sounding parts for the track, it would be a pleasure to work together again! 😁
Another great job by Alex! This is my second time working with Alex and I am once again very happy with the final result. I couldn’t have asked for more and, hopefully, we can work together again soon - 5 stars!

He has a fast delivery!!
Great guitarist and loved working with you - thanks for a great session - would highly recommend.
Quality tracks and delivered exactly as requested. Thanks Andrew
Alex is professional, responsive, patient, and of course, a skilled guitarist. He was amenable to revision requests and notes, and gave his own suggestions to help us achieve the result we were looking for. Thanks Alex!
He plays guitar on level 6 of 10 levels. The quality is ok. He ignored my instructions (sended a video, told him like in the video) so i think he have not the right skill to play like the guitar kid on AGT with clap on the guitar.
Alex is an expert and instinctive guitar player. It was wonderful working with him.
Just finished my 2nd song with Alex. He is a very talented guitarist and highly professional and he give you outstanding results. The best part of working with him is that he listens- and he communicates with you to give you his very best.
Interview with Aleonguitar
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My proudest moment as a session musician was when I got asked to record guitar and bass at Abbey Road for a client here on SoundBetter. I wrote the parts in advance and got to the studio to record them with an award -winning sound engineer from Abbey Road. The client and the sound engineer were extremely satisfied with my work and I got invited to participate in another project with them.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on a few projects for my clients. I am co-writing a tune with an EDM producer and recording vocals for a returning client here on Soundbetter.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I know Taura Lamb on SoundBetter, we worked together on a few projects and she is a really talented songwriter and lyricist. I would really recommend her services as she's extremely talented and professional.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: If I request a percentage of the royalties. It depends on the project, usually if I wrote the song I do also request a percentage of the royalties. I always appreciate being credited for the contributing to the song.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I do not mix and master the tracks I record. I only record the guitar/vocals parts and I deliver them without any additional edit.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would suggest you express clearly what are your expectations and provide some references for the sound you are looking for.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic guitar, Shure SM7B, audio interface, laptop, and a pair of headphones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been a guitarist, singer, and songwriter for over 12 years. I became a freelance session musician only in the last 3 years when I moved to London and started doing sessions in studios and building connections with the local musicians.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: As a guitarist I am greatly influenced by John Mayer, so I give a lot of importance to feel and delivery in my guitar parts. As a vocalist, I have been influenced by Ed Sheeran, James Bay, and old blues singers.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am influenced by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, Bob Dylan, Frank Ocean, Avicii, Lost Frequencies, etc.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Nowadays digital has just become the standard, even major recording studios often use almost entirely digital software as they are more reliable and cost-effective.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that I will try my best to satisfy your requests and provide extra revisions for you to be completely satisfied with my delivery.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I like the most very about my job is that I get to work with incredible artists on very different projects.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask them to send me the mix of the song, what they are looking for, a few references, and the BPM.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to track guitar parts for Adele. I love how Adele sounds on piano-based music, but I think her music would shine on finger-style guitar too.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Once I finished recording the parts I usually wait before delivering the project and come back at it the following day with fresh ears so I can understand whether I achieved the result I was looking for or if I need to change something.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on the following music genres: pop, rock, EDM, electric, soul, and R&B.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skills are versatility and originality. I have worked on a variety of different musical genres over the years, from electronic music to blues, and always met the client's expectations by applying my artistic style to the client's needs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring originality and feel to a song. I work extensively to find the guitar/vocal parts that work best for the song and serve its purpose.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I listen to the song carefully and discuss with the client their expectations. Then I import the mix to my Logic Pro and start tracking guitar parts or vocals. Once the recording part has been completed, I carefully listen back to it and provide adjustments if needed. Finally, I send the stems to the client in a wav format and wait for their feedback. I do provide revisions based on the client feedback as well.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home studio set up, the room I am recording in has been acoustically treated. I record acoustic guitar using both the direct input (Taylor's expression system) and a Shure SM7B placed on the 12th fret, the combination of the two recordings gives the producer a great deal of flexibility in the mix. I record vocals using both a Shure SM7B and a Rode NT1 based on the customer's preferences.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually write and record guitar parts based on the client's needs. After listening to the client's project and reading their requests, I write back with a message clarifying how their expectations will be met and with a quote. After delivering the completed work to the client, I ask them for feedback and eventually revise the job based on this.
