Long before I was able to buy my first synthesiser, I played guitar (not very well sadly). A couple of years ago, I treated myself to a wonderful Ibanez electric guitar but found that it hummed and buzzed like crazy… it went and was replaced a couple of months ago by this rather nice instrument. Best thing? It has humbuckers which makes it nice and quiet… it also sounds rather good. I guess I was inspired by my collaboration with Anne Chris Bakker but also because I was working on a piece of music (now part of the new ‘Soundings’ CD) and thought how nice it would sound with some guitar on it. I used a sample and… yes! love it… decided then to take the plunge and buy an actual guitar which in turn replaced my ‘sample’ line with real playing… I’ll definitely be using this more from now on.
