Original compositions. I primarily play guitar, though now I also spend a lot more time on fretted and fretless bass, software synthsizers, etc.
Haven't in a long time, this is what I do now...
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"..
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
