Session Guitarist Tim Pierce Home Studio

Session Guitarist Tim Pierce Home Studio

Session Guitarist Tim Pierce and his Home Studio Setup. I look back on this Home Studio Video and I’m amazed how much time has passed, but I am also grateful for what I’ve been able to do on YouTube in the last year and a half. This was the first day I ever met Marty Schwartz. I had known Brett Papa and Brett convinced Marty to make the drive up here and do a Home Studio Video for YouTube. Marty and Brett were heroes of mine on YouTube and the fact that I made friends with them was sort of a dream come true. They have both helped me a lot. My Home Studio is a ready to go at a moments notice. It’s as simple as starting a car. When someone shows up to record we can easily be working within 5 to 10 minutes. I’m fortunate to have people like Ross Hogarth, Chris Lord-Algae, Glen Ballard, Jack Joseph Puig, Humberto Gatica and many other studio professionals come and record at my Home Studio. A lot of the gear is interchangeable these days. It seems like pedal and amp and guitar makers are all at such a high level at this point, that you can use a new Strat or a custom boutique Strat, a Boss or Strymon effect pedal or an old Bassman or a new Paul Reed Smith amp. All these things sound great whether they be vintage or modern. The Home Studio changes all the time and best thing to do is look at my newest videos to see what is currently on deck. I’m really looking forward to learning the Kemper profiler this year, and as always, my signature overdrive and boost pedal by J. Rockett Audio, is always patched in. I was using the…

Flintface Guitar Session

Flintface Guitar Session

Here’s a short film, of a session I did for a band called Flintface. Flintface is Joe Scorsone, he’s a great singer-songwriter, and we are making a great record, with Ross Hogarth producing. I’m using a 1966 Trini Lopez through my Rivera Venus Five Amp. A Celestion Vintage 30 Speaker miked with an SM 57, and a Royer 122V. For the Leslie effect, I stepped on a Neo Ventilator. Flintface Bio (Src – Facebook) Joe Scorsone, the inspirational artist also known as FLINTFACE, resides on a simple farm in the mountains of Pennsylvania, not far from the skylines of both Philly and New York. It’s an idyllic home for FLINTFACE, whose musical message soulfully weaves hopeful tales of the complex paths, trials and ordeals of life, and how we as people can summon the inner strength to triumph in the face of adversity. FLINTFACE’s message is wrapped in a refreshing, hook-ridden, funktastic concoction of East Coast urban beats, toasts and rhymes that rocks melodically with a touch of classic West Coast grunge, a sound his fans have simply dubbed “Grunk.” About Ross Hogarth (Src – Ross Hogarth Website) Gov’t Mule, Roger Waters, The Black Crowes, Shawn Colvin, John Mellencamp, R.E.M.and Jewel are some of the artists this Double Grammy-winning producer/engineer/mixer has had the joy of working with over his two-plus decades in the recording studio. Ross’ wide varied experience and taste opened up all creative doors and usual and unusual possibilities. He’s never allowed himself to be pigeonholed or trapped in any one musical genre as his studio work runs the gamut from the heavy metal insanity of Motley Crue and Coal Chamber to the Grammy-winning Keb’ Mo’ release Slow Down to recent releases by Melissa Etheridge, Ziggy Marley and John Fogerty.
