Instrumental Recordings

60


60 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will record 6 and 12 string, acoustic and electric guitar, slide guitar, bass, mandolin, and harmonica. I can send them in your preferred format. I am adept at experimentation and can provide unique sounds beyond the capabilities of my instruments and instrument knowledge. For instance, I was asked to create a traditional Japanese instrumental but had no knowledge of Japanese music nor did I have any traditional Japanese instruments. Therefore, I listed to many traditional songs, learned several scales and keys from which to play, then sought out instruments that sounded similar to the unique characteristics within the music. I used a banjo to make a shamisen sound, the mandolin to make a biwa sound, the cello to create the koto drones and an Irish penny whistle to make the bamboo flute sounds.
I can create music specifically timed for your presentation, website, or even a short movie. Additionally I am willing to record your song ideas if you have the music written.

Training & Qualifications


I am a self-taught musician with 16 years of rock, bluegrass, folk performance and recording experience. I have no degrees or certificates of qualification. Everything I perform and record has been self-taught.

Availability & Preferences


Evenings and weekends.

Trading Preference: I prefer exchanging services

Brandon is an incredible person. He really listens for understanding, and he doesn't fall into the trap of just patiently waiting for his time to spea...k and express his opinion thoughtlessly. I value Brandon as a person and friend and his moral position on matters regarding family and marriage. Gave me some great advice in both those areas. He speaks from the heart and from a place of experience-so he is immediately relatable and trustworthy. He's also speaks with the right balance of empathy and forwardness. I appreciated his honesty and the fact that he recognizes individual worth in people and the opportunities discovered during personal struggle. I can say a lot more but I will probably hit some sort of charactee limit. show more

I hired 8 different graphic designers through Simbi to work on the same logo. I needed something fast, so I decided to enlist a small army for help an...d choose the best one. By far, Brandon is the best and most professional artist of the ones hired. He grasped the concept completely and brought me extremely unique and well designed logos. Will be hiring again right awayshow more
