I am not a band, I am a free man! Here's some stuff I did, I hope you enjoy it.
Your musical influences
Musical influences? Too many to mention. Guitar influences? Frank Zappa, John McLaughlin, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Al DiMeola, Guthrie Govan, Steve Hillage, Jimi Hendrix, Allan Holdsworth, Carlos Santana and Yngwie J Malmsteen (no laughing at the back, thank you!) Bass influences? John Entwistle, Tal Wilkenfeld, Michael Manring and Bootsie Creative influences? Anything. Everything. But most of all, the love of my life.
What equipment do you use?
Guitars: Ibanez JS1000 Warwick Fortress One Bass Washburn MG-70 SuperStrat '91 Squier Strat Vintage V2 "Tele" Admira Sevilla Classical Epiphone Jumbo Acoustic Guitar Toys: Dunlop Hi-Gain Volume, Dunlop Cry-Baby Wah, Ibanez WD-7 Wah, Digitech Whammy, BOSS OD-2, Monkey FX Valve-Sporker, Blackstar HT-DISTX, Danelectro 7 band eq, Behringer stereo Chorus, Boss DD-6 Digital Delay. Bass toys: EBS MultiComp and MicroBass II, DOD FX25B Envelope filter for teh Funkehz Amps: Laney LC15R, Marshall Popular 10 (2x12), Fender Champ 110 and an Ashdown After 8. I record mostly digitally, so I only need little amps. Other stuff: Elixir strings, as I'm unfortunately allergic to nickel (but that's a blog in itself) Dunlop 1mm Stubbies and Jazz III's, my fingers/ nails or an E-Bow Plus Recording equipment: Shure SM57 Behringer C-1 Behringer Xenyx 802/ Studiomaster 2000 18:2 mixing desks Line6 GuitarPort - GearBox and Amplitube 3 Really early version of Sonar LE DAW, works just right for me. BFD2, GPO4, numerous freeby VSTi's and a M-Audio Keystation 61es MIDI keyboard handles the stuff I can't play ;) 4Gb Intel i5 PC w/ M-Audio Audiophile 192 soundcard Cambridge Audio A1 amp with Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 monitors or Sony MDR-V500 headphones if it's late. Still searching for some talent to go with all that!
Anything else?
If you'd told me 25 years ago all this would be available, in my home, I'd have thought you were mad! So glad I would have been wrong :)
