  1. Erik Mongrain is an amazing guitarist and "Air Tap" is one of his most well-known songs. Very good.
  2. 1. Do you sing, play an instrument or instruments? Yes, I do What instruments? Electric guitar and I dabble in bass occasionally When did you start playing? In early August of 2008 Did you teach yourself? Yeah, pretty much. Just online resources and self-study 2. Are you in a band or bands? Not yet What is the name of the band? n/a What do you play? I'd like to start an instrumental / post-rock band What other instruments are in the band? n/a Do you have a band website? n/a 3. Do you write songs? In my head- not on paper ( I can't read or write sheet music) Do you write lyrics, music or both? Just music. I'm an instrumentalist Do you have a writing partner? Nope 4. Do you record your music? Some of it Do you use a home studio? If so what gear do you use? No studio. I use my video camera and sometimes Audacity hehe Do you use a recording studio? No Do you have music available on the web? if so where? Yes, on Youtube. www.youtube.com/wayneguitar84 5. What other roles do you perform in the music business? None Management? Label owner? Publishing? Promotion? Other? None 6. Are you a tech head? Not really 7. What country do you live in? United States 8. What are your ambitions? Hmm.. there's no short way to answer this. Even though I know most people consider instrumental music "unmarketable" and unsuitable for mainstream radio play I find it very enjoyable. Ever since the late 70s-early 80s pretty much ALL instrumental music has been forced underground and you're not going to find it unless you dig (which I've been doing for past few years). I know it would be unrealistic and damn-near impossible for one person to bring it up to the surface. So all I can strive for is to just do my part to help keep it from disappearing completely. There is most definitely an audience for it because people all over the world attend concerts to see instrumental artists all the time. I don't care about having my music on the radio or being in a band that becomes a household name- I just want to play what I like. This probably seems like a pretty cliche thing to say but it's the truth. 9. Do you draw/paint/write stories/computer art/dance or other creative pursuit? I used to draw What are your pastimes? Like I said, I used to draw but that was a long time ago and I probably wouldn't be any good at it anymore. Other than that, I taught myself how to swing around nunchakus without hitting myself and I've been doing that for about 6-7 years now. Playing video games, watching movies, bike riding, hacky sack. 10. What would you like to get out of Songstuff? Hopefully to find some other people in my area to jam / start a band. If not, just having my music heard by a wider audience would be satisfying enough.
