Today is, may 1.

My favorite guitar ever is the 1959 burst... A new one would be a hollowbody of some sort, i love the thick tone. However strats and les pauls have their place.

I started playing at 14 or so... I went to a party and they were raffling off guitars and i won one. I let it sit by itself for a few months, then started picking it up. After a while i wanted to play it. And this and that happened and i learned. I wasnt like inspired by music or anything it was more i wanted to play and that inspired everything else, changed my musical taste and such.

Do you use any training schedule, or ever used? Do you believe in improvisation with (theoretical)knowledge or improvisation with feel? if both, then whichone is more leading role?

James Brown or George Clinton?

how you feel of Joss Stone?

My pedal board is a:

Real mccoy wah->barber tone pump->lovepedal eternity->skreddy pigmine-> maxon eq->ce chorus->dm-2 delay->volume pedal.

I love the classic marshall tone but if im not playing classic rock it tends to be too gritty for me.

Nope no training schedule i play when i play, which is a lot. I notice one thing about improv, when people dont know theory, and theyre GOOD, they play well, and when people know theory and are not as good, they play well, but if you have the feel without the knowlegde, gain the knowledge, and understand that you dont need to follow it, and to follow feel and theyre great.

James brown.

Never heard of him/her will look up

There was feed on the other side :)

Superpower... Ability to control time, go back, forward, stop pause, everything.

Id wingsuit base jump, travel around the world, go to loads of concerts, and enjoy the world while i can.

I dont think i have one all time influence/inspiration... If i did...Hmm Pink FLoyd.

Sax. I play it but id love to really learn it.I love the way sax players solo and the feel they grasp.

In one time? Ive biked 100 miles. My overall distance on my bike is 2235. Thats from 1 year of cycling.

Who inspired you to start playing music?

If you could take a 1 week vacation anywhere, where would you go?


And this is a question I got... 5 city tour anywhere in the world. Where would you perform?

When you pick up the guitar, what part of the fretboard do you gravitate towards? The nut end, the 5th or 7th fret area or the 12th and above?

What key do you tend to start in when fooling around?

Interesting that you say the San Juan Islands. I have a friend who has a dream to live there and from the pictures I can't imagine too many other places that I want to visit. This is my favorite song by Minus the Bear, which is about those islands.

Phip

You're such a likeable guy.........what's the meanest thing you've ever done?

Both, when i dont have my clip on tuner i just go by ear. Its usually pretty close, but when i have it i use it...

Hmm... Im not gonna lie im not a violent person, and ive tried to be mean once to someone, and it failed outright. I punched someone once who was really buggin me out. That was at least 6 years ago though.

Recently i totally cold shouldered someone. All i knew is i was absent one day, came back the next, and were all chillin in a practice room about 10 of us, were all close friends, and this new girl that i heard about walks in, and immediatly everyone starts bugging out, went from talking to silent and one of my friends starts saying how you dont do this and that and i dont like you do be trying to come in with me. And immediatly im like wow... So the girl is like 5' tall. im 6'. I knew she was talking *** behind peoples backs. So i got up in her face, and im like i dont care what you did, i dont care who did it, i dont care if you dont know what im talking about. You will not piss off any of these people ever. Got me? She says i didnt do anything, im like I DONT CARE. LISTEN. you and me got some real problems if i hear your talking stuff behind everyones back again.

Thats what i can remember. Ive never got in anyones face like that before.

Oh and one teach accused me of being a rapist. I got pissed. But wasnt mean. I just threw on the most pissed off look on my face, like a look that said "You disgust me, leave" and i walked away. She wont even look at me anymore.

Do people really tune to something other than 440hz? I guess they must since there are other settings on tuners.

Hmm, well i guess about 5 months ago hippie... Recently ive been outta that character completely. Ive asked people that and no one really categorizes me. I guess hippie in the sense i love everything and like that music. But ive been into funk and soul lately to be honest. Besides that im really not. Ive been told by some people i sound black and i act a little black. I disagree but ill take it haha... Im just a guy i guess, im straight out, if somethings on my mind ill say it no questions...

OK Mister, turn in your van and roach clip!
Funk and Soul though.........that's a good trade ;)
When was the last time you played for an audience? Do you enjoy being onstage or is it a necessary evil?
