I'm working on it. Does "making stuff on a computer" count? Regardless, I'm learning piano, and I'd say I'm learning guitar but that would be an insult to the art. (I'm not very good at it.)
Recent alum of MAGIX Music Maker, moving onto FL Studio. Sometimes I use other programs, but those are mainly things like Audacity and Melodyne for additional editing. I also occasionally use BeepBox for its unique effects.
I have a Yamaha DGX-230 keyboard that I use as live input for my synths, as well as for its great presets. I have an additional Yamaha above it that, while in comparison is practically a toy, has some great lo-fi sounds I love to sample.
I've got two Blue Yetis, one hooked into a full Yeticaster setup and one I keep anchored to its original stand via LEGO that replaces the screw I lost. They share a windscreen that I swap between them depending on which one I'm using.
I have a nice Stratclone that I tend to use for purposes other than traditional guitar use. It also came with a nice low-tier amp that provides a great analog effect when I run sound through it. Its overdrive, as well, is killer. I can combine it with my DGX-230 and turn an organ preset into metal guitar.
I can more succinctly state who ISN'T an influence.
I don't understand how people can stick to just ONE genre. There's SO MUCH GOOD EVERYTHING. I can and will listen to and make almost any genre.
