In Guitar 100% Guarantee By ClintWells

Electric/Acoustic Guitars specializing in ambience, tone and texture (Tom Petty, U2, Coldplay, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, etc.) for $150

As a session guitar player based in Nashville, I specialize in rock, blues and country and am mainly known as an ambient/texture player along the lines of U2, Pink Floyd, Coldplay, etc. My rock and country guitar playing is influenced by tasteful guitarists like Mike Campbell, Keith Richards, and Daniel Lanois. Focusing on texture, tone, parts and vibe, I believe guitar playing should always serve the song. I've played on many critically acclaimed records.

For electrics I have an assortment of vintage Gibson ES-335's and SG's, Fender Telecasters and Jaguars. I love big hollow body electrics. For my acoustic needs I use an '89 Gibson J-200 and a '67 Martin D-28, two of the best sounding vintage acoustics I have ever heard.

My two main amps are a Vox-AC-30 for classic low-mid gains ranging from The Beatles to Radiohead and a '67 Bassman for the legendary Fender clean tone. I have a super nerdy, borderline obsessive compulsive pedalboard filled with boutique delays, reverbs, overdrives and compressors that allow me to step into any live or session gig and sculpt my tone to whatever the artist requires.

As for recording I use the widely praised Universal Audio Apollo 8p into Logic Pro X with a variety of great condenser/dynamic microphones. For my acoustics and bass I run through a BAE 1073MP preamp. That combined with Universal Audio's award winning plugins and the quality of my instruments, it doesn't take a lot to get amazing guitar sounds.

My process is simple and designed to give you everything you may need as efficiently as possible. If you know exactly what you want I can easily do it. If you're unsure about what you want then I'm happy to lend my years of professional experience to help you create the best guitar parts for your song. I'm a fan of layering and panning and will send you fully edited and comped finished tracks so all you will need to do (unless you specify otherwise) is plug the tracks into your song. Included always is a .txt file called "Session Notes" explaining my detailed thoughts behind each track I send you.

I'm easy to work with and can communicate ideas very clearly with artists about the vision of a song in terms of tone, parts, references, etc. I'm grateful and humbled to have the most positive reviews for guitar on all of Airgigs. Let's make some music and I guarantee you'll see why. Thanks!

    I have used Clint's help on 3 projects now and I look forward to the 4th project. I find his quality of work to be significantly better than other guitarists I have worked with. He just gets it.

  16. Review By: JoshuaArmstrong Oct 25, 2018

    Clint Wells is a wonderful musician! I will be hiring him again for future projects!

    Once again, Clint intuitively heard what was needed and delivered. Good job, Clint!

  21. Review By: ealexo87 May 15, 2018

    Smashed it!
    450mb of stems, covering every type of guitar part needed in a full production, from the lead parts to the more subtle padding parts. The quality of the recordings are good and pretty much ready to drop into the mix. No revisions necessary.

  22. Review By: TimBSwisher Mar 1, 2018

    5 Stars for Clint again. When I send Clint a song I have the utmost confidence that he will get it on the first go around. That really says it all. Thanks again Clint!

    Perfect as always. Thank you.

  36. Review By: parnellstreet Sep 21, 2017

    I had some particular theme and mood requirements for a project that has proven quite difficult to nail down. Clint came on board and immediately elevated everything! Now I can focus on the final assembly of elements necessary for this projects particular aesthetic. To all those who are window shopping; Clint is a master of soundscapes and creates the most devastating beautiful passing tones -- your project needs his sound! Two hamburger helper glove sized thumbs up!

  37. Review By: sonny Sep 18, 2017

    Great work - gave me various parts to work with, which is always appreciated. I'll be back for some more!

  38. Review By: scottrichmondmusic Sep 11, 2017

    Clint is awesome! He gives you a ton of options to use for each song he works on, which sound great on their own and also sound amazing all together. Great guy and super easy to work with!

  39. Review By: ETraps22 Aug 30, 2017

    Quick turnaround. Provides a large selection of tracks to help you assemble the mix you want.

  40. Review By: ealexo87 Aug 11, 2017

    Clint is a safe pair of hands and I would recommend his services.

    Clint's playing will give additional depth and dimension to your track whilst complimenting your existing arrangement. The recording will be of a high quality.

    Once again and again Clint nails it. On the last song I sent him he more less created a beautiful piece out of a difficult request. Very subtle guitar parts all intertwining together like a small symphony. More than well done!

    Clint is the consummate musician who can immediately get the feel for what you want and deliver it quickly.

  52. Review By: kastokes Apr 13, 2017

    Clint laid down some beautiful guitars for a song that is really personal for me. Between the several different options provided, incredible playing, and his positive attitude, I couldn't ask for a better experience.

  53. Review By: sirensaudio Apr 12, 2017

    Damn, Clint does it again! This is our second time working together and he not only delivers what we ask for but exceeds what we ask for. Our client was in tears after she heard what he played on her song. She said it was "just as she heard it in her head." He's quick, professional, and a delight to work with. That's what you look for in a great session musician. We can't recommend him enough!

    I love working with Clint & have hired him 3 times now. Clint turned this latest project around in about 16 hours (!), now all that's left for me to do is push some faders & print. Thanks again, Clint!

  57. Review By: kastokes Mar 10, 2017

    Clint nailed it! It's a privilege to work with such a talented musician who goes above and beyond. I highly recommend you hit him up for your productions.

  71. Review By: mattjamesloony Nov 3, 2016

    Clint is insanely talented. His guitar playing is exceptional, not just his playing but his understanding of what makes a good song as a whole. He is equally at home on the acoustic as he is on the electric. He is very easy to work with and extremely quick. I would recommend this guy to anyone. Cheers Clint

  79. Review By: KindredSpirit Jul 27, 2016

    Terrific work. Clint always gets a great sound and is fun to work with. He obviously cares about what he does and he plays for the song. You can tell he is listening , experimenting, and really trying to make something special. And he succeeds! I am always excited to get tracks back from Clint and see what he has done. My thanks to him on another song.

  95. Review By: johnpresley Feb 10, 2016

    I'm a composer and work with lots of musicians online. I asked for something modern along the lines of Coldplay - Clint gave me multiple parts that had been created to work together. I can tell you from experience, most guitar players do not have this next level ability to think like a producer!

  96. Review By: KindredSpirit Jan 3, 2016

    Clint will add awesome guitar tracks to your song. Flexible and easy to work with. A great experience!
