Daniel studies music and guitar.
His Marshall-style stack involves a Fargen tube amp made in California, Port City 2x12 slant speaker cabinet from North Carolina, WGS speakers from Kentucky (specifically a Veteran 30 over a Green Beret), Mogami cables from Japan, custom made Pratts Boards from New Jersey, Sennheiser cabinet mic from Germany, Focusrite audio interface from the UK, and an array of Boss pedals from Japan and Taiwan.
His guitars are based on the Telecaster, Stratocaster, Les Paul, ES-335, and acoustic dreadnought and parlor guitars and are made by Fender, Gibson, Epiphone, Ibanez, and Michael Kelly. He also owns mini-stacks by Marshall and Egnator and small portable amps by Vox and Boss.
His musical tastes are broad, including early Jazz, Chicago blues, American songbook, folk and working songs, swing and big band, romantic composers, and classic and progressive Rock. His musical study is focused on the rock era of 1960s-1984.
His musical goals involve improvisation and composition.
