Todd Ferguson: I wanted to make a heavier rock/fusion sounding CD. That was the mood I was in when I picked up the guitar and started writing the first song.
Todd Ferguson: I try to make a positive note (or notes) on what I am playing. It is much more difficult to get that message out through a note on a guitar than it would be to sing a word. I am a Christian, and since I'm not singing, I try and bring out a positive approach through the guitar and my song titles.
Todd Ferguson: To me personally it would have to be the feeling. After listening to so many great guitarists over the years, I don't think I'm qualified to answer that question yet.
Todd Ferguson: Sometimes... but to me the greatest compliment I've received by someone listening to this CD (other than the cover) has been, "Who's playing drums? Who's playing bass?" I wanted this CD to sound like four musicians jamming live in a studio, and if that's what it sounds like to someone, then that makes it better.
Todd Ferguson: This interview is by far the best thing. I really appreciate what Guitar9 does. There are so many great musicians on your web site that... well - this is an honor. I have mailed out a lot of copies to alternative radio staions and have had it played on one station. Also, it sells through cdbaby.com. I don't expect much, but everyone I have given a copy to so far (that I know) has liked it.
Todd Ferguson: I don't have a website any more, so the best way would be to email me at email@example.com.
Todd Ferguson: I don't have anything lined up right now, but I did get a phone call from one of my old band mates who plays guitar in a band and they were mentioning about maybe playing some of my songs - so we'll see.
Todd Ferguson:Not really for me so much. Fifteen ago there is no way that I could have done what I can do now. I knew from the get go that I wanted to make another "physical CD", even if it was just to give a few copies to friends. I still like looking at someone's CD cover while I'm listening to it if I want to. But on the other hand, If I hear an mp3 by someone I don't know, it may inspire me to buy the whole CD!
Todd Ferguson: "Smoke and Mirrors", "On The Same Page", and "The MoneyChangers".
Todd Ferguson: I am playing a few new things. I hope to at some point - working full time and family makes it more interesting.
