Original compositions. I primarily play guitar, though now I also spend a lot more time on fretted and fretless bass, software synthsizers, etc.
Why this name?
Just me with occasional guests. Also check out -->
Do you play live?
Haven't in a long time, this is what I do now...
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
There's a lot of great music out there, but the industry drives mediocrity while special talent and innovation can't make a living. The internet can help the balance swing more favorably for the artist than in the traditional industry-based model. That is a good thing..
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Depends on what "signing" will do for me.
OK, here's a short list --> McLaughlin, Metheny, Franco Mussida, Jeff Beck, Carlton, Holdsworth, Yes, PFM, ELP, Cactus, Gentle Giant, Bruford, Bloomfield, King Crimson, Carlos, Kazumi Watanabe, Scott Henderson, Hendrix, Stern, Danny Gatton. Have always been a fan of "well crafted pop tunes"..
Wherever my Muse can dance and talk to me.
Cakewalk Sonar Platinum, software synthesizers, many guitars and basses, Roland GR-20 & GR-55 guitar synths, Mesa-Boogie, Genz-Benz, Blackstar, EZDrummer, Addictive Drums, various plugins.
This is how I try to stay sane, hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping in. Platano Muse
