Future plans/projects

Now that my debut CD is out, I'll take a well deserved break from writing and recording. I'm hoping to contribute to a compilation CD featuring Ibanez JEM and Universe players in a couple of months. Aside from that, no future plans at this time.

Additional notes

I couldn't imagine not having my own studio, even when I had just a four track. The ability to record when I want is a freedom that I could not live without. Having a studio, however humble, is good for guitarists as well because it teaches them that there are other instruments in the spectrum and gives them insight into the processes (and pains) of audio recording.
