    you've been spotted with some pretty sweet guitars in a recording context earlier this year; care to illuminate?

      what would you say is your biggest musical road block, be it with songwriting, gear, or playing ability?

          What inspires you? Do you have a particular routine for writing/making music, or do ideas just hit you at random every now and again?

            Oh, is that so?

            Let's see, as far as guitars, between mine and the guys from the band, we had a pretty nice selection going

            I've got a Telecaster w/ a Highway 1 body, MIM neck, all SD pickups that I got from Butch Snyder off the forums a few years ago as a father's day present for my dad, but he shares with me. It had a Gibson minihum in the neck that I switched out for a Seymourized Mini Humbucker.





            I've got an Agile LP-shaped 12-string that I also bought here on the forums from Brent aka gt5litre. I flipped the string arrangement so that the octave string is on the top side, like a rickenbacker, and put in GFS "Memphis Retrotron"s, Alnico II:




            I've got a 1993 CIJ Fender Jaguar that I bought from a friend of mine, Brendan Scholz, who happens to be the nephew of Tom Scholz from Boston/Rocktron fame. He works at Cowtown guitars here in town and has always been one of the greatest players/performers/all around star quality dudes in Vegas, in my opinion. You can hear his latest band here: http://www.myspace.com/lydiavance

            It had a buzzstop and dimarzio humbuckers in it when I got it, took me a long time to get it where I wanted it. Now it's got a set of nice american jag pickups w/ new pickguard, flatwound .12 strings.




            My dad's got a really nice 1993 Guild that's sort of a semi-jumbo, seems like? I like this guitar a lot. Nice and full sounding.





            Also have a ~1967 Gretsch Viking. Amazing guitar, it was the top of the line second to the White Falcon, not a very popular model, but I love it. This guitar was given to my family by a friend, Mayf Nutter.



            guitars owned by others include a Rickenbacker 360 in Mapleglo, a 1994 limited edition CIJ Fender Jazzmaster (great playing/sounding guitar), a G&L custom ASAT w/bigsby, a Gibson ES-335, and an American standard Strat in Daphne Blue.

            You can see more pictures from the session right here

              Hmm, maybe the sort of minimalism I've been writing with recently.

              I'm always thinking what sounds best out of stuff that's coming from me is just one instrument usually playing just a few chords, a small drum beat and a vocal, doing some small loop or pattern that's hypnotic for me for a long period of time.

              Playing ability, I just need to play along with some different styles of music and really get my chops up. I know I'd get better/get inspired by doing that. No block to me there except getting around to it, basically.

              I definitely am conscious to not let gear roadblock me in any way at all. I purposefully use cheap/broken/toy gear and feel my way around it until something legitimate comes from it. I could get into a groove on any setup, I feel.

              Inspirations are the thing that hits me at random, they're not clear song ideas or anything, but I'll watch a movie or see something in the street and carry around these images or concepts or whatever it may be with me. These inevitably flow into creative processes when I do them.

              When I come up with something, it's because I worked on it. I sit down and decide to write a song. Actually, more like I sit down and decide to play and I know I will make a song from it.
              Actual processes change, but what I'm doing right now is that I'll play something on any instrument available to me, get some kind of riff or chords going that either inspire me for a melody or something or they just have a good mojo or sound to it, then I'll record that and loop it, and then just sing over it for a few hours and try to mine that idea for hooks. Then I end up listening and reviewing my hours of work...
              I'll usually get an idea for performance of the piece when I'm recording it, I try to imagine myself in that performance. Hard to explain, maybe?

              Here's a random list of things/themes that I think a lot about:
              Technicolor
              Etymology
              Ethics
              Ecstasy
              Electricity
              Witches
              Candy
              Reflection
              Life Cycles
              Vanity
              Machines/mechanics
              Exponents
              Mortality
              Crystal formations/natural-emerging mathematical patterns
              Prosthetic knowledge
              Space travel
              Space missions in general, most specifically and presently Dawn mission; retrospectively on Voyager and Cassini-Huygens.
              Fear
              Optics
              Biology
              Sexual power/consent
              Manta Rays
              Fragrance
              Psychology
              Darkness
              Determinism
              Certainty
              Glamour
              Absurdity
              Humanism
              Interior design
              The gothic and grotesque
              Japanese graphic design, movie posters in particular.
              Self-expression
              Self-awareness
              Perception of time
              Theoretical ecology
              Future of technology
              Sisyphus
              Mythology

                What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

                Is Boise State overrated in the AP rankings for college football?

                          It's not Idaho, it's Boise State!
