I dont have a band, and I am also not very much of a musician. I simply put notes in some kind of order where they fit together in an odd way. I am still looking for that progression that gives someone chill bumps.
I grew up on Deep Purple, Boston, Kansas, and then the whole 70's disco stuff. When I first heard Van Halen I, my life changed and I wanted to play music then. Now, I like the nu-metal, post grunge music, most anything on XM station Octane, is my thing. Actually I like most anything excluding the polished "pop" stuff and the new country stuff, I like the old classic country some, but prefer bluegrass over country. I get a kick out of 40's music, and enjoy the light rock from the 70's too, but mainly Hard Rock gets me going....
Roland gr20, Ibanez 6 string bass, Korg Effects Unit, Reaper 3, ezDrummer, KORE 2, a old midi keyboard, a couple mics
I used to track all my stuff as .wav, but since I have learned to work with midi, and bought KORE 2, i track everything midi, it leaves me WAY more open to try different sounds, notes etc, and makes everything so much more flexible..
