YourGuitarist.com founder Lou Lombardi conceived of the idea of Internet based guitar track development while working with a client with a busy schedule. Due to the client's performance demands, it was difficult to find a time to collaborate. Lou thought there had to be an easier way to work with the artist other than phone conferences and FedEx overnight CD's.
Researching this problem led Lou to the Internet, where he worked with partners to develop a system that allows him to remotely collaborate with clients online. Clients can speak with Lou on the phone while also swapping guitar tracks online, leading to fast development of their high quality music.
Lou said, "The response has been great so far. The artists really like it because it gives an 'in-studio' feel to what used to be a somewhat impersonal way to get their guitar tracks laid down."
Right now artists can go to YourGuitarist.com and listen to sample tracks. Once they have decided to purchase a custom track, all that is required is a rough sketch of how their song will flow.
Upon receipt of the song sketch, a professional YourGuitarist.com player with years of experience is assigned to the client and development begins. No stock guitar work is used, everything is produced solely for the client's project. Work continues until the artist is happy with the custom track. Finally, the track is recorded in a professional studio and delivered online to the artist, or optionally via overnight CD.
Pricing for custom guitar development varies based upon the project, but most budgets can be accommodated. In select instances, payment can be partially based on residual commissions for use of the track.
