Q: How - given just how huge the range of things you can do with a keyboard instrument is - did you decide to focus on the guitar-like melodic stuff that you play with Nail? I love it :)
A: It kind of just happened... I was strongly influenced by early 70's synthesists like Pat Moraz, Keith Emerson and more; specifically Jan Hammer and his incredible pitch bending technique. His album "Black Sheep" featured extensive "guitar" trax, all done on a custom Minimoog. Couple that with my love of the guitar - John McLaughlin, Jeff Beck, Bill Frisell, Scofield - I found myself taking the synth further & further into "guitar land".
