Taaffe, Denis - Guitarist
Solo electric Guitarist, author & indy film maker (View Portfolio) bloomington, IN 47401
I use regular guitar and guitar loops done on the fly to create multi layered instrumentals. All of my instrumentals are improvised on the spot and recorded live (for albums). I enjoy creating albums and instrumental music. Thus far, I have completed and released 105 albums,which are available at While I am primarily a guitarist, I also enjoy creating recordings, mastering recordings, creating A/V documentaries, films,film scores, writing books and screenplays, and other multimedia projects.
I have played guitar for many years,trying to develop my own unique style and approach to music. I am former student of guitarist Chris hattingh who gave me a good foundation to build on. I have participated in the 44th,45th,46th,49 and 50th Grammy awards and have been a voting member of the Recording academy since 2000.I write a monthly instructional column for Premier guitar magazine (formerly Musician's Hotline magazine). I have endorsements with kradl picks, parker guitars,ernie ball/musicman,boomerang pedalboards and formerly Jackson guitars,1999 and wlgore/elixer strings1999-2006.
