Me and my buds....my classical guitar and steel string guitar
Hi! I'm Dan Tharp, a solo acoustic guitar player who plays classical and steel string guitar....but only in my spare time. I don't make a living as a musician. I'm actually the IS Director at Pekin Hospital (http://www.pekinhospital.org).
I've been playing guitar off and on since I was 13/14 but never could bring myself to perform or record because of "stage fright" and that stupid/crazy voice in my head that keeps telling me I'm not good enough to make a living at it.

So, I pay the bills the old fashioned way (with a real job) and play just for fun.
Well I'm in my 40's now and I've been thinking maybe it's time to get over that and start recording and maybe(?) performing again.
I just purchased a BOSS BR-600 Digital Recorder to record my pieces with. As I get the time, I'll start uploading them to this site.
By the way, the BR-600 is an AWESOME device. I recommend it highly!

I hope you enjoy the music.
If you do, please pass this site along to your friends!
I'd really like as many people as possible to hear it.
I appreciate any feedback anyone has to offer...good or bad.

Take care!
Dan

I went to isynx to look and it was you. I am one of your fans! I thought your name looked familiar. Actually it was the guitar that gave you away. I would know your sound if I was blindfolded and you played a song. You have a distinct sound. Rob

I have made a nice living in this business. I play fairly well but I can't play nearly as well as you. I've been lucky with opportunities. You don't need luck. You need marketing. An easy 5 from me.

Dan if I could play like that id never be off the stage. No excuses. Ha Ha. Have you ever thought of putting vocals on top on one or two as they lend themselves to melody very well-particularly KODI. Impressed Brooksy
