Dan Donegan (created August 1, 1968 in Oak Lawn, Illinois) is an American musician and guitarist for heavy metal band Disturbed. Donegan started playing guitar as a teenager and eventually formed a group called Vandal, that was an ’80s-style hair band. He also played with several of the members of Vandal in a different group that was called Loudmouth. Donegan was added to the guitar show “Chop Shop’s” list of “Top 100 Most Complete Guitar Players of All Time” at number 76. Donegan is pursuing a side project band, Fight or Flight in collaboration with Disturbed band member Mike Wengren.
Donegan had quite long hair through the early days of Brawl and Disturbed. He was required to cut his hair because of it, but instead opted to put on a wig to mislead his dad and keep his long hair. It worked, and his dad eventually let him keep his long hair. Donegan features a daughter named Maya and also a son named Justin. He uses one handed and two handed tapping in many of his solos, with pull offs, legatos and hammer-ons, also occasionally using the “film off” technique, as used in the solo for the song “Indestructible”, as well as in others too. His heavy riffs and sweep picking are seen in several music videos. He uses his DigiTech Dan Donegan, “The Weapon” for many effects in and out of his solo work. He also combines arpeggios with finger tapping and many other techniques. He’s notorious for shredding in certain songs and uses finger vibrato on occasion. He uses the whammy bar in several tunes to give it a specific sound effect. In the video “The Making of Indestructible”, he mentions he prefers “tasteful” solos, as opposed to shredding solos that rely primarily on speed. Disturbed’s frontman David Draiman mentions “he [Donegan] can rip with the best of them”. David also says “He Is [Donegan] in my opinion you know among the most effective in existence, and he does not give himself enough credit”. Early on with his career with Disturbed, Donegan played Gibson Les Paul Standards and SGs. Afterward, he changed to play a few Paul Reed Smith models, the Tremonti Model plus a PRS Singlecut. In 2005, Washburn Guitars built Donegan his own signature version known as the Maya, named after his daughter. For 2010, Dan constructed a trademark guitar with Schecter guitars, that’s based on the ultra classic model (his being the ultra DD). Donegan is a fan of GHS Boomer guitar strings and uses the 12-52 gauge set. He also uses Seymour Duncan pickups in his guitars. He is now signed to Schecter Guitars.
