This is just a collection of musical ideas, mainly for projects I have going or projects I have in mind. Feel free to comment if you like, or dislike any of it.
My name is Danny, I live just outside Leeds in the UK. I'm 30, and have been playing guitar for almost 20 years. Most of these recordings are made using my pedal board with Amplitube 3 or Guitar Rig 5 Pro (I prefer Amplitube 3). I use a couple of Strats, and a Jazzmaster. I also have my beloved '94 Marshall 1959SLP, with matching Marshal 1960 Vintage 4x12.. annoyingly, I live in a small flat and cannot record with my amp.
My Main influences as a guitarist are Hendrix, David Gilmour, Jorma Kaukonen and Kurt Cobain. Hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit for the first time on Radio 1 in 1991 at the age of 9 or 10, I just had to get a guitar and learn how to play it. I had never heard anything like it before. These days, it's so overplayed that I can't listen to it anymore. I was raised on a diet of Pink Floyd, Guns & Roses, Iron Maiden, U2, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Metallica from the age of about 4 or 5 courtesy of my two elder brothers. I used to sneak in to their bedrooms and listen to their vinyl.. which paved the way to a life that is pretty much dedicated to music. With Nirvana being the first band I had discovered all by myself, I began to fine tune my musical taste. I discovered Hendrix when I was about 14 or 15, which is when I became seriously obsessive about the guitar. These days, I mainly listen to 80's-90's Post Punk era music, and 60's-70's Blues Rock, Prog Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Hard Rock etc. Nothing too obscure, but I do like finding those far out gems.
As of 26/02/2013, I am seeking committed musicians to form an blues rock/experimental/prog rock/psych rock/post punk band in the Leeds/Bradford/Keighley area.. if you are interested, then give me a shout.
I'd also like to get involved with some online collaborations. Drop me a line if you want to do something like that too.
