Just adding some more info on this matter: At bigger gigs you are given a form to list the titles you are playing and in case other composers are covered they are duly compensated through their PRO (Performance Rights Organisation). I have personally only played my own composition at such bigger gig...

Just recorded these two. I love the alto. What a great addition to the Stick arsenal. I'm going to get medium gauge strings, and go a little easier, to avoid intonation problems, but, I hope you enjoy. Cheers! What a lovely sound, Japhlet! And you're playing that alto very well. I'm a big fan of th...

Logic 10.x.x. Because it allows me to work fast. Because it allows me to set up my own preferences and key commands to streamline my workflow into using the DAW almost as my instrument (can't go into details... would take hours). Other apps I use now and then are ProTools, Ableton Live, Cubase and B...

Throwback Thursday. The man, myth and legend: Mr Topaz Wow, I haven't seen that for a long time... I have to admit that video once scared me away from the instrument/company :-) Here's another old video where the good sides of the Megatar are al...

The Stick is an idea machine... So true! Today I had put my Stick for rest in an armchair during a short break from a recording. I hadn't bothered turning down the volume pots, so when my son came in and threw a towel into the same armchair a loud swarm of wonderful IDEAS manifested in the air. We ...

By the way if you have a chance checkout the tone I dialed in for my cover of "Teen Town" . That's a lovely bass sound, man! And you are right; "tone" is definitely subjective (took that for understood). I didn't mean to come across as saying "a...

The Megatar was one that I looked closely at six years ago, when I was going to pick up two handed fretboard tapping. But after having talked to a lot of players, watched many YouTube videos and read a lot of forum posts I decided to hang on and save up a little more so I could go for a Stick - just...

Great question B-A! I totally approach the Stick as one instrument, but one with an exceptionally wide tonal range. The reason I got into Stick playing five years ago was that I wanted to play more solo concerts in a manner that harpists and piano players can do so well. Thinking about balancing you...

I've never broken a string during my current three years of outdoors playing every day for four months a year - and now and then in studio recordings for the rest of the year. BUT... many times string #7, the lowest and fattest one, has broken up at the tuning peg. When that happens I use to tie it ...
