I was the vocalist in a band when I lived in Phoenix, we played a few gigs in the desert with a generator keg parties with friends mostly. I played guitar but the other guys were both way better then me so I was forced to play bass because we could never find one.
I have a little studio in my garage with cubase and I do drums with a midi keyboard and a program called ez drummer. I have a thing for buying cheap guitars that play well and replacing the pickups. I have about 5 that play the most expensive or well known of them is a red acrylic BC Rich Warlock that I put EMG's in it. I have 3 Bass guitars but only one works which is a mongrel with active EMG's
I have a couple of old tube combos, a musicman and a vox from the 70's and a kick ass old Sunn bass head and cab.
I have a bucket full of old stomp boxes and mainly just play around with odd tunings blended thru a billion different effects. I can't read a note of music or know an E from a C from an A. I can tell when its in tune but to what key I have no idea
my ears tell me when its right.
Proper musicians don't like me much, I can bring them a tape and they listen and think wow thats really cool, lets work on that and then get mad when I can't do it again or duplicate the sound
So yeah its mostly just me in my garage, at the moment just working on writing music based on photos I have taken or poetry my friend writes.
