    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14

    When/where/under what conditions do you feel you write/compose your best material?

    Do you tend to write in pieces, or do entire songs come to you at once?

    Would you consider your music a pass time, an outlet, and a true extension of yourself?

    I write my best material more or less out of the blue. A riff will come to me and when I go to record it, the rest of the whole song just sort of falls out of my brain and into place all on it's own. In that way, yeah - entire songs tend to come to me at once.

    That said, I have written stuff in pieces over time, but I'm usually not as happy with the result vs. the complete songs the muse gives to me.

    Oh... dang. I think she asked me out, and I was like "well, alright. That sounds cool."

    All three. Music is a huge part of my life. Not the only part, but it's definitely what I consider my "thing." It's what I do. Given that, plus the fact that I've been playing guitar now for about 13 years, I should be a lot better!

    I'd probably be a neck-thru strat-type guitar with a trem and HSS config.

    You mentioned working in software. What motivated you toward this?

    Ok, technically yesterday should have been the last day for my Well, but I left pretty early yesterday and I still owe Gr8Scott an answer to his very thought-provoking question.

    Otherwise, interest seems to be dying down so I'll take care of the unfinished business and ask a mod to close it.

    Not really. That's what I'm suffering from as well at the moment, and yesterday I left work around 10:30am, went home, and wrote a song. Today I feel considerably better.

    I tried Echinachia (sp?) and Goldenseal and that didn't do a **** thing for me, so I guess my recommendation is to write a song.

    Well, I haven't always worked in software. I'm a technical writer, which is a job that spans about every professional field in which a company develops or manufactures a product that is eventually sold to a consumer. I do everything from writing forms, procedures, standards, and specifications, to creating product documentation like user guides and training manuals.

    My responsibilities at my current job (the small software dev. company) have kind of expanded to include helping conduct training courses on our products, software testing, a few systems administration responsibilities, and I recently redesigned the company logo and created a basic website for corporate presence at the request of the owner.

    As for what got me into it - $$$ - plain and simple. I work to live, and with my English background, this field presented the best workload-to-pay ratio that still afforded me the lifestyle I prefer. I get lots of personal fulfillment from the other aspects of my life, so I'm totally OK with my job just being a job. That said, I really like where I'm working now and I get to do lots of different things, so I'm rarely bored and I don't dread coming to work.

    Yeah.

    When my band in Ohio fell apart (due to a crazy-assed singer who literally started to believe he was Jonathan Davis) and we started to try to put the pieces back together and get something else going, I did something I never do. I quit. I realized the whole thing was going nowhere and I cut it off - moved 300 miles away and basically started a new life.

    I've come a long, long way since then. When I started Istari, I send demo tapes to the drummer of my old band back in Ohio and he, feeling like I had a year earlier, decided it was his time to do something new and moved out here to Indy to be in that band.

    So... I guess that whole series of events is something I'm pretty satisfied with.




    ----

    That's it for my episode of The Well! I want to thank BungalowBill for asking me to do it and everyone who asked questions. It's been fun - I feel like in telling you guys about me, I learned a few things about myself along the way.

    I already have someone in mind for the next episode, but I'm not telling.......
