I just love how Davi is able with a single guitar to make compelling and virtuosic accompaniments with all the three layers: bass, extended harmonies and countermelodies! They are absolutely lovely and I've been waiting my entire life for a musician able to do this, since many of my songs call for just that!

Davi was wonderful and gave me inspired playing and expression. I had a lot of fun hanging out with Davi for the 1/2 hour in. The files I received are exactly what I expected and of high quality. Thank you again

Wow! this track sounds amazing. I'm always blown away when I expect to get some basic guitar chording and end up with a whole rhythm section. The UKE work was perfect!
