Influences: John Denver to Aphex Twin. Latest expansion has been into jazz with Kamasi Washington blowing my mind.
Guitar and synth noodler and former High School poet. Trying to find a little more focus in my 45th a year on the planet. FAWM rookie.
More gear than talent, including this living room setup:
And some Eurorack:
Also, not pictured, Korg Karma, Moog Sub37, Arturia MiniBrute, Korg SQ-1, Arturia BeatstepPro, Martin D1 and Yamaha 12-string acoustics, and a few other guitars, fiddle, and mandolin.
I record primarily on a MacBook Pro into Reaper via Scarlett 18i8 + Behringer ADA-8200 direct and with MXL mics. Guitars are usually recorded through an Avid ElevenRack, but sometimes mic'ed.

So appreciate the pics of your gear! The suitcase synth must be so much fun! The black tele is my go to for every song this now. I don't even pretend to use the strat or les Paul anymore.
Thanks for your nice comment. That german is flawless.. (it's "die Basslinie").. I'm the same age as you, btw. Have a great second FAWM half!
Thank you I am so happy you liked it
Ahhhhh.... a baritone guitar is on 'my list'. I love the sound of those. I have a Tacoma DM912 acoustic 12 string I got about 18 years ago that I absolutely love. 12 strings in general are just one of my favorite sounds. I drool over Rics, but will never actually have one, which is ok. Same with the Ric bass of my dreams, lol.
Thanks for your note. There is no "failing at FAWM." Write what you write and do what you do. Being here at all is a HUGE success.
Cheering for you!!!
I do like me a bit of Satch, so I guess his influence are bound to show when I crank the amps. 😉
Many thanks for taking the time to inflict my tune on your ears.
Thanks for the nice comments on Springtime.
You should look into those TMBG lyrics if you think they weren't cynical to begin with. Thanks for the comment.
