Q: LIKE how you guys are setting things up with the guitar in the early going...developing phrases ..you are moving into new spaces..i can hear that over, what a 3/4 period i've followed you...cool
A: I guess to answer your question I'd like to ask a question first. Are you asking about the guitar tone or parts/phrases that are being played. I'll attempt to answer both. The easier of the two would be tone so I will start with that. Basically, i've been adding pedal after pedal into my rig (ocatves, phasers, delays, boosts, wahs, compressors, ec) and with this level of complexity changing the signal I've become more aware of EQing! haha This not only shaped the tone immensely but helped shaped my playing by opening to avenues of sounds and clarity. Now in terms of setting things up with the guitar we have two main approaches. 1st) Phil comes up with some sort of progression and riff with a specific style or sound in mind. For Taxidermy he was going for that spastic dance sound almost but with Ghosts, for instance, he aimed to emulate that early thrash sound. Songs are also written with each members strenths in mind, and since you've followed us for 3/4 of our time, you know we've went through some player changes, Naturally, the sound would evolve too. 2) Roy will provide the back of the sing, typically a heavy bass riff driven song and the guitar parts are written to blend in and let Roy take the reigns. I hope that gives ya some insight! Thanks again for the question and the support!
