Answers to FAQ (frequently asked questions):

  • Yes, I am playing all the sounds you hear. Amazing, innit?
  • No, there are no backing tracks, or “MIDIs” or any recording or looping. It’s all done live.
  • Yes, my feet are playing the drums.
  • The bass and synth sounds are coming from the guitar (strangely enough, the guitar sounds too!).
    • My right thumb is playing the bass sounds on the lower strings.
    • My right hand fingers play the guitar synth sounds on the treble strings.
  • Vocal harmonies are from a clever device (I suspect more intelligent than me) that figures out what I’m playing on the guitar and twists my voice to follow in realtime.
  • No, it’s not “cheating”. I’m still singing as well as playing the bass, drum and guitar parts simultaneously. The tech is just a tool to make the sounds more appropriate to each song and fill in the sonic holes.
  • Yes, it takes a lot of patch editing: of every sound for each. and. every. single. song.
  • Yes, I know what all the knobs and buttons do.
  • Yes, it took a long time to learn. In my case, three years full-time study, followed by 35+ years of experience.
  • Yes, This all means I’m very busy and can’t really chat about this stuff during performance. However I’m always up for tech talk during breaks and tear-down.
