Every successful composer, songwriter, arranger and programmer knows that guitar overdubs with the right sounds and the right stylistic approach are crucial to the success of a project. Don’t spend hours auditioning samples and trying to program a guitar track when you could simply take advantage of the broad range of guitars and sounds I bring to your project as a highly experienced and creative studio guitar player.
My name is Jerry Kimbrough. I’m a graduate of the University of Miami School of Music with 25 years experience as a studio guitarist in one of the greatest music towns in the world, Nashville, Tennessee. I’m fortunate to work with some of the best musicians in the world, adding my creative expertise to pop, rock, country, alternative, Americana, gospel, jazz and various dance music projects…including any combination of the above that you could imagine and some you’d rather not! I’ve worked on projects for Sony/Epic Records, BMG Records, Virgin Records, Giant Records, MCA Records, Lyric Street Records (Disney), Telarc Records and a host of independent record labels and artists. My publishing clients have included well-known writers for Dreamworks SKG, BMG Music, Sony Music, EMI Music, Zomba Music, Peer Music, Curb Music, Warner Chappell Music, and many others.
Do you work in Broadcast or Advertising? I’ve collaborated on projects for cars, beers, soaps, cereals, restaurants, antacids, tacos, tires, clothes, stores, banks, insurance etc. etc. Some of my clients create music for network and cable TV, some create music for film and others for industrial shows and various other business applications.
I get these calls because I’m a reliable professional with an easygoing attitude, lots of great guitars and great sounds. But more importantly, I get called because of the creativity and attention to detail I bring to my work in an effort to make people’s projects sound better than they would have otherwise. And I’m ready to do the same for you.
“Jerry is, without a doubt, my favorite guitarist. Regardless of the style of a song or record, Jerry always makes the music soar. His studio work is inspiring. I find myself writing with great anticipation to hear what Jerry will play.”
—John Bettis, Songwriters Hall of Fame, 2011 (Human Nature-Michael Jackson; One Moment In Time-Whitney Houston; Slowhand-Conway Twitty)
“Man, I love it. It’s so great the way you know how to create cohesion. It takes the music up a level higher than before. Great.”
Add Attitude With Guitar Overdubs Which attitude? Whichever attitude your project needs. Maybe all your project calls for is some simple, straightforward guitar overdubs, whether it’s a Start or a Les Paul, a Jazzmaster or a PRS, an arch top or some slide. Or, maybe you’re looking for an electric guitar sound that will give your project a certain attitude or special vibe. Reach into my arsenal for a guitar with some extra personality.

Does your project need steel string or nylon string acoustic guitar overdubs? You can specify finger picking and / or strumming, doubling (same part played twice to create a stereo image) or stacking (additional part/parts above or below the principal part), even add fills or a solo. Looking for a little extra magic as I overdub acoustic guitars for your project?

Guitar Overdubs…How It Works Send me an .mp3 of your project and let’s talk about what guitars and sounds your project needs. You may have specific ideas, or you may just want me to follow my instincts, get creative and do the right thing for your project based on my experience. All overdubs are recorded with Neumann, Royer, Miktek, Shure and Audio Technica mics and Neve and API mic preamps into Apogee Symphony/Thunderbridge converters and then into Pro Tools.
Once your payment has been received I will send you your guitar track files in the bit rate, resolution and file format of your choice, using whatever delivery method you are most comfortable with.
