Dennis reports that he finds studio work one of the most enjoyable and challenging aspects of his services as a musician. He takes pride in being able to add heart and soul to a track even when sight-reading. He also enjoys understanding a bandleader’s or producer’s needs and then fulfilling them on the spot…

He says “you have to stay relaxed and be receptive to new ideas and new approaches while being time-conscious as well. Studios are expensive and time is money. But I find this kind of high-pressure situation exhilarating. I thoroughly enjoy both sight-reading as well as having to come up with on-the-spot ideas based on client feedback or sheer inspiration.”

In his 20 years as a pro studio musician he has done jazz, country, hip-hop, heavy metal, folk, etc. He’s played acoustic 6-string, 12-string, electrics of all kinds, classical guitars, and 4- and 5-string basses. He can play with a pick, fingerstyle, slide guitar, etc. and he’s equally comfortable with lots of effects or none at all.

Currently Dennis is using Presonus Studio One as his DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and has programs that can generate parts on instruments that he doesn’t play (drums, keyboard, etc.) in thousands of styles to choose from.

He is also equally comfortable with recording audio as well as midi, as he frequently uses his GR-55 guitar midi controller/ synthesizer to compose his own arrangements.

Testimonial from a long-time client:

“I have been working with Dennis Winge for over 15 years, he originally played guitar for my band in NYC and more recently we engaged him for some studio work. He is an amazing guitarist and a true pro. Dennis works quickly and can play pretty much anything you throw his way! I definitely highly recommend him for any of your session needs, you will not be disappointed. Not to mention he’s just a super nice guy and really easy to work with no ego or attitude ever!” – Gail Silverman
