No Guitar Allowed!!! Vol 1
No Guitar Allowed!!! Vol 1 is an album featuring my work on all the Non-guitar I’ve built or own. I have developed my playing using a mandolin, mandola, mandocello, ukulele, acoustic and electric, as well as Ubass and Irish bouzouki.
All the songs on this album are using a mix of those instruments. There’s only one song that features a regular guitar, but I use it tuned in open G, and I play it with… Continue reading
Danton Cue is my pseudonym for more commercial music to make a difference with the other more advanced stuff I’m publishing under my real name.
If I had decided this earlier, I would have published albums such as “Lifestyle” and “Wrecked Express” under that name.
All the songs featured on those three albums were composed and produced to be sold as copyright free music for soundtrack videos and alike. They are less personnal than my regular music production.
It was… Continue reading
The ninth Hervé Senni’s album is out. This progressive jazz album is a concept album. All the songs are in 7/8 meters, and they are all interpreted using the same two custom guitars that I build.
A fretless guitar sporting a sustainiac system and a 24 frets neck thru also holding a sustainiac device.
The purpose of such limitation is to create a group sound. Each guitar forces me to play entirely differently, and therefore, the outcome sounds like a… Continue reading
Wrecked Express was released in June 2017, following the success of my earlier albums as Secret Room Sessions, Keep It Simple and Start Me Up. As with my previous albums, this is another concept album. But here, I have experimented, not just with the interplay of loud guitars and drums but have incorporated the drums and guitars with the old genres played rock style. This album will take you on a music journey that will traipse the 50’s; the 70’s… Continue reading

The green monster is my fourth album. It holds nine original compositions based on electro grooves and Indian percussions.
It is a new approach for me. I always wanted to use electro grooves, especially Jungle beat, and drum & bass. I forever loved the hypnotical rhythm of those patterns. The only thing I never liked about electro music is the never ending two bars patterns looping forever.
I focused a lot on bass playing. In some songs, the bass line… Continue reading
My third album “Positive Grooves” is available on streaming and download websites.
The musical concept of this album is entirely different from the two others. I decided to explore a different approach to composition.
The focus is on melody and grooves. The guitar solos are always minimal on purpose. The counter melody is more important and upfront. The guitar solo is used as a background, and therefore simpler.
I also used warmer, and less aggressive guitar sounds and orchestrations are… Continue reading

I wrote those songs between 1985 and 2015. I composed most of them for my seven piece fusion band which I was performing with, in Canada and France between 1985 and 2010. I rearranged those pieces to be playable with guitars only.
