Took piano lessons for 10 years from my mother. Started college, and dropped the music for mechanical engineering. I'm getting back into it, and am going to start putting a hobby recording studio together in efforts to do some composing via guitar, bass, piano, and vocals. Very little vocal talent, but I can hold a pitch.
I have an obsession with building computers... I could do it/research parts all day and not get bored with it.
Right now its just a computer, M-audio Firewire 18/14, Casio Privia PX-300, a partscaster (fender japan rosewood slim-c-neck, mexican alder body, minibucker neck, single coil bridge), peavy cirrus 4 electric bass, bugera v5, a boss distortion pedal, sm-58, NADY dynamic mic of some sort, a few cables, and my grandfather's old 3/4 size acoustic guitar (had some work done on it to get it playable again).
Desktop: AMD 955BE, 2gb crucial pc6400 ram (2x1gb), 500 gb samsung sata II hd, XP Pro, 500 gb external USB HD, PCI Express XFX 5770, ASUS MB, add-on 1394 and USB PCI cards.
Sibelius 4, ableton live lite 8. Nothing else yet. Planning to get Cakewalk Project/Maybe Reaper.
