|| CANSO, Nova Scotia canada
Traveled all over north america, from key west to northern labrodor newfoundland, from new orleans to chicago and as far west as oklohoma (didnt make it over the rockys) but I got to see lots of performers and always loved the guitar, its the soul of the americas, and will remain even if tecnology stops we will be able to continue on our axes entertaining the masses, started playing in a post punk/ hard core band in the late 80`s early 90`s,always writing and playing our own songs, (we couldent mess up our tunes) then moved on to old and classic rock, and continued writing tunes.
Started recording with 2 gettoblasters around 87 and have actually learned alot from that, studied at the canadian conservatory of music (stage managment and sound design) used cakewalk acid pro, sound forge and cubase up until now. With my iMac I`m learning again (all ove to be exact) and hope as my son gets older he will have the want to write as I do .
I have great respect for BOB rock who keeps it simple and knows what we want to hear , the human ear doesnt need to be bombarded with too much input , listen to metalicas ,' Justice" then listen to bob rocks production of the black album, simplicity and raw minimalism alloud us to actually hear a 4 peice band without all the glam and niose ,
Now I merge my guitar with Mac Garage Band and though it is new , it also gives me full controll of what I want to produce , I dont have to wait on my drummer to sober up , or the bass player to get a day away from family, though my family can be enough to keep me away for a few days...on the other hand being, the only contributer ,also means less input to the creative process, thats where you all come in, any critisim, good or bad, is an education in itself! I dont lash out at negitive input I will take good with bad, and in between I will find my truth , like a garden, weeds must be pulled and nourshment must be givin, and then, in time the plant wiill bear fruit...........,
