As a guitarist for 50 years, I took to the synth about a year ago. Just playing around, following the sounds my knob fiddling created, without more knowledge than what the Volume knob does. At least i knew how to wire the stuff. And how to record with open source tools. Some of the tracks were on the cassettes I released by dropping them at bus stations and the like. Editions between 2 and 4...

Now it's starting to get serious, I have a setup together with old, collected over the years, and new machines and a great Rickenbacker bass amp. Time to let this stuff out. It might not be very controlled, of course, these are all first takes that i refuse to edit or overdub or treat in any other manner.

Tracks are more or less in, descending, chronological order.This is just for me, my ego, my fun. You can do, you can don't.

PS got a lot of guitars for sale, all vintage, all very much used on tour, which will add to the price, beware. And a dozen acoustics for less. For much less. And very vintage Rolling Stones guitar amps! Heavy stuff. The best!
