I am pretty embroiled in moving on and moving forward with music.
I don't like playing standards. I like to do my own cutting edge work.
If I'm playing a violin thing, for instance, I tend to respond to that sound with the way I finger.
I've got four or five records in my head at a time that I try to work on and I would like to do a guitar trio record next - since The Police I've mostly made records with keyboards.
If you're a guitarist, you should not be intimidated by using your instrument as a synthesizer, but you shouldn't feel that you have to own one, either.
