Why this name?
My name is Michael Silvestri - so I just stayed with that . I use Michael Silvestri - guitarist as a band name. Works for me.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Julian Bream, John Williams, Jorge Morel, Segovia, Paco de Lucia, Juan Serrano, - I love the classical guitar but also I am very influenced by world folk music. Latin American, Flamenco, Celtic etc.. are all a part of what influences me in my compositions.
I have 2 guitars made by Lester Devoe and one made by Khono - I use a Yamaha 4 track mini disk to recorded with 2 Shure bg 4.1 mics and and Audix cx 101 and 3 art tube preamps for each mic. My mics are all placed an arms length away. Each mic is assigned to a seperate track - bgs are panned hard left and right - audix is dead center
