Future plans/projects

The band I am a part of, 'Kissing Tree' are in the process of recording their first CD release. Instead of paying someone else big bucks to record us, I got it in my head to buy a VS880 and do it myself. Needless to say it is not as easy as it looks. I have a lot to learn about recording music. My main goal is to record bands that are not fortunate enough to have equipment.

Guitars: 
Maton (an australian make) small body accoustic Ibanez Roadstar 2
