I am a guitarist, synthesist, bassist, multi-track recording artist, online recording artist utilizing cubase vst32 digital audio workstation via v-band.de located in the gmbh "germany. i live in seattle wa 'of coarse". I have been playing and recording now for over 30 years. My styles are progressive, jazz fusion, grunge, metal etc. i have produced and or played guitar on 4 CD's to date. I am in the process of getting my songs on you-tube and soundclick again. i have sold songs on i-tunes and rhapsody in the past but money is an issue now, it is not cheap to put songs up for sale initially, but the sales more than make up for it in the end, you have to have alot of patience and diligence to be a musician. casting pearls without getting a pork chop in return keeps my ego in check constantly. it is the same with my type 1 diabetes, it is a real ego deflator.
