Future plans/projects

I hope to find other musicians to join me in making another guitar instrumental CD. I have one on Somewhen Records called The Whyrendogs. I would like to have more freedom to lay my guitar tracks down as the process was costly and I felt rushed and did not achieve what I wanted in the final product. Good experience though.

Comments

I have a unique sound, some like, some like but think I need some help in mixing (I agree). My final product is a fusion guitar instrumental in the styles (but not limited to) of Shawn Lane, Ritchie Kotzen, Paul Gilbert, Nuno Bettencourt. I cross genres from Michael Hedges acoustic tracks, fusion, hard rock, speed metal, prog rock, experimental. So I don't have one specific sound but the playing is recognizable.
