Dallton Santos

Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Date of Birth: July 25, 1976
Been playing guitar since: 1995

My father taught me the first chords on the acoustic guitar, and I became a huge fan of The Beatles. Soon i started looking at the electric guitar, inspired by Slash and bands like Metallica and Iron Maiden.

Professionally, I started teaching and gigging early with local rock bands.

Currently I'm focused on my trio and giving classes worldwide via skype.

I have 3 instrumental solo albums and I´m always writing new songs -
because of my love for music!

I´m sponsored by Gruv Gear, Alien Amps, Ibanez, Dragons Heart Guitar Picks.

I have many, many... influences. Here are my top favorites. Let me start with the guitar players that I like: Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Brett Garsed, Jeff Beck, Allan Holdsworth, Greg Howe, Scott Henderson.
