I have been composing, recording and occasionally performing for 20 years. I am fanatical about music. It is the one thing that truly gives me a charge in life. I primarily record music libraries to sell for commercial purposes, but I record specifically written pieces for visual projects from time to time. A special thanks to JHWDESIGNS who do all my graphic designs for me.
Instruments I play
All manner of guitars, bass, keys (to a very limited degree, have to find more practice time on the ivorys)
Software I Use
There are three programs that I have been using lately. My main one is Logic Pro...which if you don't know is a SICK DAW! That is what I do most of my mixing, editing and mastering on. In terms of sequencing and getting creative I like to use Garage Band because it has such an intuitive and easy to use interface. Lastly, I use Ableton Live Lite from time to time to record live instrumentation and create loops from my own recorded audio.
Hardware I Use
I have a MacBook that is brand new and amazing...I use a Line6 PodXT for direct recording...I am in the market for a nice controller and mixing board and then I should have all the tools I need...Oh yeah I have an M-Box, but since I am on OS 10.5.2 the drivers are as of yet unavailable
Listening To Right Now
Ummm...yeah at this exact moment it's all music from this site! =)

My Influences / Fav Artists
Just copy a list of the all-time greats that every other person who plays guitar does and you will pretty much sum up mine. Not original but what's great is great right?
My Music Sounds Like
It came right out of 1975. All the classic guitarists are the guys I end up sounding like. Hopefully the mishmash ends up sounding distinctly like SixfingerMusic.
In My Other Life I ...
I manage at a restaurant called Louise's Trattoria. If you are ever in West L.A. look it up, it's a great place to grub. I am there at least 50 hours a week, yet there is always time for music. Find the time to do what you love, it is very important.
