    Dan is an awesome country guitarist (well guitarist in general, but particularly awesome with his country licks which is what I was after) he has brought so much enthusiasm and talent to this project - it's been an absolute pleasure to work with him. I've also learnt so much too. Having worked with other session guitarists, Dan has been in a league of his own. I would really recommend working with Dan, he's one in a million.
