This is my buddy Tim. Pretty sure I've shown a few of his other things here in the past, but for those who are not familiar with Tim, he's one of my Albuquerque homeboys who moved to LA back in the 1980 to work with Rick Springfield (among others), and has since become one of the most sought-after studio guitarists in the country. He's recorded with pretty much everyone.
In this session that he just posted today, his producer is in South Africa while Tim's at home in LA. I'm still mesmerized seeing how a bunch of simple parts are layered to create a complete tapestry of sound...
He has a lot of other similar videos on his site. Check them out if you are interested in seeing how the real pros do it.
