I am a one man band so to speak. I play all of the instruments in this music. There is a myriad of reasons for that. But, why go into all of that boring junk?
Mike Just Didn't Get it
Peak in sub-genre #15
I am really a solo player, more or less. I do not sing very well so I usually have to get someone else to do that. I like to play all of the instruments; however, that can be a bad thing because there is no fresh perspective to the various parts. I like to make music that makes you think. Of course sometimes it is good to make a song that gets stuck in your head. Or to make a song that moves you emotionally. I am not against making friends here that could possibly start up a collaboration or two. Who knows what could happen when the magic of creativity gets going.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I don't play live anymore. I am no longer in a band that plays out. I used to be in bands that did that. It was great while it lasted.
Your musical influences
Pink Floyd is my main influence. I like Rush, SRV, Hendrix, Pearl Jam, tool, A Perfect Circle, The Smashing Pumpkins, Robin Trower and a ton of others. Mostly older type music. However, I do like some of the newer stuff too. I am inspired by everything that I hear. Even the stuff that I do not like. I get inspired by things that I see and/or feel.
What equipment do you use?
I mostly use Fender Stratocaster guitars. I do own and use a couple of Les Pauls from time to time. And I own an Ibanez guitar as well. I have a Fender "The Twin" amp, plus a Hiwatt DR504 50 watt tube head and a Blackstar HT 5 that feed into a Marshall 2x12 cabinet. I prefer Boss Pedals; however, I do have a Tube Screamer and a few non Boss guitar items such as an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff and a B. K. Butler Tube Driver. I feed these through my Boss GT-10. I record into Sonar X3 on my PC through a Tascam DM3200 mixing board. I am using Focusrite and ART preamps. Plug-in wise, I have finally been able to get ahold of some nice reverbs and several VSTi instruments to help with the recording process. Nothing major really.
