I am the band, I am the guitar, keys and fender bass player, the drum programmer, the engineer and the producer. I do not play one style, though fusion, funk and blues are central. I also make computer dub, ambient, latin, various African styles, neo-soul, electronica, disco, some house, soundscapes. I have no hardware synths or samplers.
Discovered DAW tech late 2004, bought Cubase and started building PCs same time. Played guitar and bass since 1979
