    Still getting to know the Sterling Cutlass I bought last month... I really like this thing!
    Although I still can't find a use for position four yet! (neck+middle)
    - this is mostly on the middle pickup.

    Thanks for listening (or just looking, haha)

    Excellent original music on your Soundcloud page, I must say.

    Thank you for that! My gigging days were over many years ago, but as they say 'you can take the boy out of Rock & Roll, but you can't take Rock & Roll out of the boy'
    - that would be 'old guy' in my case, haha! Nowadays modern technology let's me fool around with musical ideas (and it also makes allowances for my scrappy playing too...)

    I'm glad you like it!
    i have a tiny m-audio Keystation keyboard to input bass lines and synth parts... all the tones of the synths, bass and guitar are created with GarageBand's built-in audio effects, as well as most of the drum sounds. I use a cheap Behringer 202 audio interface... it's a very simple setup!

    I agree, you dont need too much to make tunes sound great!

    I have a Korg - Minilogue XD and I find I use my Akai MPK Mini more often then not when its time for synth parts.

    I had to look that Korg up - that's a very impressive piece of kit - there is some amazing electronic gear around these days! I still have an Akai LPK 25 that I used for a while, but even though I'm not a real keyboard player, I prefer the 32 keys of the M-Audio to the 25 keys of the Akai - it's a nicer feel too

    Thank you, Chris, I have spent a long time working in GarageBand. It is not the perfect DAW by any means, and I have been disappointed in the stock sounds for many instruments.
    But, it is a very easy application to get to grips with and start putting down musical ideas - frankly I think Logic (an obvious upgrade) would be too complex for me!
    Also (like with my other hobby, photography) it's all too easy to get obsessed with buying more gear, 'better' gear, in the belief it must make you a better artist. That is not true for me...

    Yes, it's a great place to be any time of year. Out of interest, which part do you go to?

    In the past I have visited Barcelona and Madrid just really for a couple of days. Recently we have been to Javea and Valencia for 'real' holidays.
    But for the past 5 years we have spent Christmas on the south coast; Nerja, Marbella, Alicante, Malaga and 2019 down to Nerja again...
    I loved every single place we went!

    Yes, love Barcelona and Nerja in particular. We live up in the mountains about 25 minutes from Alicante.
    Let's hope that it's possible for you and your family later this year.
