About FatalGear41
Happy New Year 2014!!! Here's hoping that this year is a good one for you! The music business is in complete chaos, we have more good instruments to choose from than ever before, and we can create in our homes a studio-quality recording with a laptop and a software suite. Yes; we live in what the Chinese call "interesting times." Thank heaven for good whiskey! How else would we make it these days?

In spite of all of the craziness, uncertainty and information overload, people continue to create and perform great music. This is indeed encouraging. It proves that no matter how much things get screwed up; it always comes back to the music. Those of us here are the ones for whom listening to music just wasn't enough. Something in it spoke to us, and we had to play it as well as hear it. We had to create it. We had to make it a part of our lives. While this often entails frustration, disappointment, heartbreak and disillusionment; it also provides a richness and a quality that those who sit on the sidelines shall never know. And that is what makes it all worthwhile.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I have a lot of years and a lot of mistakes (plus a few good moves) under my belt. If I can help, I will. It would be my pleasure!

Rock on, brothers and sisters! May it all come together for you in 2014! And remember: anything done in pursuit of the love of music cannot possibly be wrong!
