Future plans/projects

I'm in the process of putting it all together. So much to learn and play with. Actually, some of my inital set-ups came out sounding great! I was surprised (as were some of my more experienced friends). Influences range from PinkFloyd to AliceInChains to Brahms, Bach, Zappa, Genesis (old), Ian Moore, KingCrimson, and others! Doug Johnston - I owe you a lot of credit too!!

Try to see the forest from the trees, it's been hard to concentrate on writing, when so many other concerns are present.
