Original – Doesn’t Matter

Here is an original song that I wrote in 1995. ¬†Having been influenced by Dream Theater for 3 years at this point, my own music started to take on a more¬†progressive feel… more complicated chord progressions, more intricate drum¬†tracks, and I was breaking away from the old “verse, chorus, verse chorus, solo, chorus, fade out” paradigm of songs I grew up with.

While the guitars and vocals were performed by myself, my friend Mike Fermer played the keyboards and programmed the drum tracks.  Yes, that is a drum machine.  Mike is amazing at programming drum tracks!

Another thing to note:¬†I was much more of a guitarist at this time of¬†my life than a vocalist, so… ¬†ūüėõ

Vocals recorded with my Shure SM-58 mic. I was playing my 1986 Charvel Model 3 strat guitar through a portable Zoom effects processor.  The keyboard is an Ensoniq SQ-1.
