    What's your favourite note on the guitar, and in what position?

    England or New Zealand in the 1st Test???


    Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it's a plan!

    (picks up tele)...it's between A on the d string, 7th fret and C on the g string, 5th fret. Today, at least...

    um, New Zealand? -I'm not very expert on cricket these days, though I enjoyed watching and playing it as a kid. Haven't we got this new fat bloke who is quite a good opener? -brings to mind David Boone...

    I try and keep all sport watching to football, in an attempt to not turn into one of those dudes who will watch anything with a ball in it and perhaps get more stuff done. And there's enough football as it is...

    Have you ever gotten it on with an Aborigine woman?

    Have you ever gotten into surfing?

    Where is the most innapropriate place you've taken a leak?

    If you lived on the fringes of society and had to live as a career criminal, how would you make money?

    If, by 'aborigine' woman, you mean Maori, then yeah. I've slept with a Maori woman, and part Maori, part european (nice mix). My very small sampling in the area suggests they like things a bit more physical than other women.

    A tiny bit as a teen. Stood up on the board once.Can totally see why dudes get into it. Plus we have some great surf down here.

    Well, when I was about 18 I was arrested on my first NYE away with the lads for taking a leak on the front fence of a stranger's house. I was drunk and didn't see the cop coming.

    Well, I'd be a terrible drug dealer. Perhaps car conversion? (there's an in-joke for anyone who REALLY knows me)...

    Is it good stuff? -my tastes are more in the literary fiction area: Rushdie, Delillo, Kundera etc...
    I think Corporate Blue came out a few months ago. The Second Favorite Son is a historical fiction novel about the Confederate States had they won the American Civil War. The plantations have now given way to corporations. It's set in current times.

    Corporate Blue is about an air traffic controller working in a small town airfield, and the corporation attempting to take them over.

    I don't believe he has had much success at all really. As he still teaches air traffic control classes as his main gig.

    That first one sounds interesting. I remember reading a cool book as a kid about what would have happened if Goering had kept bombing the airfields during the Battle of Britain, and the Germans had eventually invaded Britain in 1941. I'd love to read that again, but I have no idea what the title is...

    How's the music scene over there? Is it possible to make a living solely from playing/performing and not have a day gig?

    It's tough. You can pretty much tour everywhere in two weeks. For example, our nationwide winter tour for July will probably be about 10 gigs, and that hits all the main centers and about half of the gig-viable towns. People do make a living at it, but a lot of big names still have day jobs or really have to hustle and be active and flexible. There are a couple of acts who literally play everywhere with a hall, which would be a very cool thing to do...

    But the scene is very good for the size of the country, and local government, radio and the general population are very supportive. There's a broad range of music, and lots of cool scenes. Some great singer-songwriters, a lot of good reggae and dub bands, plenty of cool indie bands, some decent extreme metal acts... A bit of everything, really.

    An excellent Well so far H_G, a very interesting read indeed. You have, to this point, managed to successfully conceal your thinly veiled love and deep respect for all things Australian. I was a little disappointed in your lack of support for the NZ national anthem, I always thought it was a catchy little number, especially that chorus section that goes "Her love shines over my horizon, she's a slice of heaven..." and that "Na, Na, Na" bit.

    Now, on to my question.

    You're on one of those rare deserted islands which happens to have a generator. (Actually, for a Kiwi, that won't require too much in the way of imagination!) You are allowed one amp, one guitar and one pedal. What would you choose to take, in each category?

    Hey Martin,

    What is your most embarrasing moment?

    What is your favourite dessert?

    Are you familar with New Zealand's Gale Chan?

    Who is your favourite Australian band of all time?

    What country would you love to visit?

    When I can afford it.

    I blew my wad getting the Victoria, and it'll be a long time before I buy another high-end amp. I'll be building a tweed princeton this year, so if that goes well, the next projects will be a JTM45 and an EL84 amp. I could feasibly make a London, but I can't buy the exact iron, so I don't know how close I could get...

    If you could have any superpower what would you want to have?

    What about a power that you would hate to have/find utterly useless?

    What's one movie that should be required viewing for all?

    favorite character? (question is vague on purpose...choose whoever/whatever)

    Probably my Vic Double Deluxe with 2 G12H30s and modded to add reverb and trem. If that's a bit big wattage-wise (maybe the natives are restless), I'd go with a Swart AST.

    Pedals? -I'd probably go for an all-in-one unit like the blue Boss thing. Is that cheating? -Multi units aren't my thing, and to a certain extent pedals aren't either, but it'd be nice to have some other sounds for variety.

    For a guitar, I'd probably take an alder bodied relic tele with a fat neck, jumbo frets and a flattish radius. A tapped bridge pickup would be nice for a couple of output options. But my tele or reverend would do just fine.

    Now I think about it, a boss loop station would be a cool thing to take...

    Wow, too many.

    I always cock up some important part of a song when my band is being filmed for TV. that's always fun.

    My big sister still tells people about me doing breakdance moves in my seat when she took me to see Breakdance 2: electric boogaloo.

    I was in a tutorial class at uni, and was given job of note taker in a group consisting of three girls and myself. I was absent-mindedly doodling while the group discussed stuff. There was an embarrassing silence when I realised everyone was staring at my doodles: what appeared to be a very large pair of breasts. That went down well.

    I can't tell you how many times I've started a solo in the wrong key or accidentally stomped on my tuner or left it on.

    I also did lead vocal duties at a gig. That was pretty horrid for all concerned.

    So many places. I plan to head to Britain to visit Anfield stadium in Liverpool before they pull it down. I'd love to get over to the states, meet some forum bros and try A LOT of amps.

    Top of the list would have to be Spain. I'd love to spend some time there.
