ABOUT

eMail: dan at codersonline dot com

The songs on this page were written and recorded by my last band. I was the rhythm/lead guitar player. We are currently writing all new material with five songs completed instrumentally with lyrics available.

Seeking bassist, drummer and lead singer to form band including a lead/rhythm guitarist/vocalist to develop, perform and record original hard rock music. We may do a few covers if needed to be able to do shows longer than 30 minutes.

Had my first guitar lesson many years ago while living in Utah and have been playing guitar ever since in the Sacramento area. I started out with an Ibanez Musician guitar and a 100 watt Danelectro Tube Amp when I was 15 years old. I’ve had numerous guitar lessons with emphasis in rock and classical using a flat pick and finger styles. I have a very aggressive style on my own with a lot of rhythm and lead and hope to continue to integrate my style suitably with our band. I have learned a lot from my last band about song writing and giving the other band mates room to sound great.

EQUIPMENT

I have many electric guitars, but usually alternate between three PRS and three custom Roman guitars for practice, recording, and live performance. I have two nylon string guitars and two steel string guitars in case friends want to join me for song writing or an acoustic jam session. Currently, I use a very thick, 1.9mm thumb pick, and finger pick with index, middle, ring, and pinky. Occasionally, I will use a brass Jetslide guitar slide. For amplification I use 4 full-stacks including a Fractal Audio Axe-Fx Ultra with a 2x100w Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier power amp with mesa cabs, Marshall JCM2000 TSL60 with Marshall cabs, Rivera M100 with Rivera cabs, and a Mesa 100W Royal Atlantic with Mesa cabs. For bass I use a Ampeg SVT-4PRO 1200-Watt Tube Preamp Bass Head with two Ampeg SVT-810E 8x10 800-Watt Extension Cabinets and a Fender Bassman 400 350W combo. Have Mackie PA gear with four QSC and JBL speakers and QSC sub. Racked Pearl drums with Mics and recording gear including video.
