I just saw your 'Atlas' music video. WOW you have awesome technique! :) How'd you learn that left hand upside-down playing? Does it serve a purpose or is it just showmanship?
thank you! sometimes using your thumb to hold a bass note is useful but the over the top playing is purely aesthetic haha, i was inspired by seeing john petrucci do it on a lot of those one note/open string riffs
A 'thank you' to the person sharing the imgur links! :)
yeah that shit rules!
Hey Plini:) I'd like you to listen to the ending, 7:40 and after, of my song, and tell me if it's way too muddy, because i can't tell any more haha. This is inspired by you and Sithu and David. So it made sense to share it with you. <3
hey dude! the guitar is really clear but i find the drums a little muddy, although for that adventure documentary raw indie band vibe it works well haha. sounds super nice :)
Are you vegetarian?
nope, although i disagree with the practice of eating meat the way most of the world is doing it currently
What kind of questions do you, I guess to put it bluntly, 'ignore' answering? If someone asked you to check out their Plini tab would you not bother?
nopee i try to answer everything, especially when its a geniune enquiry about something. i just sometimes ignore the non-questions when i cant think of anything worth saying in return or i dont like the content (dumb links etc) haha
some of this stuff is off the HOOK. thank you!
have you smoked weed man
the posts i like the most are the ones that arent architecture haha. nice mix of good taste and people who just have too much money
i used to follow most of these, good stuff all though most high end design gets a bit samey to me after a whilehttp://drawingarchitecture.tumblr.com/
- really diggin this stuff lately so if you come across any of the more conceptual blogs send them my way :D
Reme is from Greece because Atlas is a Greek God that holds the planets and Reme is the one that holds your heart <3. i tried
greece is geographically very close and theres a much simpler reason for the name :)
(also you share the same name as some Greek philosophers...but you probably hear that all too often...)
Still looking for a vocalist like Kimbra?
i noticed you don't swear as much as you used to haha
i do in real life as much as ever, but i dont think it contributes to conveying messages to a wider audience
to clarify though, i love "rude" language (when it isn't abusive) especially in the presence of people who find it uncomfortable, cos i really don't like censorship or conservatism
FUCK REME MEANS FRIENDSHIP BUT ITS ORIGIN IS NOT AMERICA? UK NEW ZEALAND AUSTRALIA AUSTRIA
nope is your caps lock broken?
Which forums did you originally join to promote your music?
mike portnoy/john petrucci and then later sevenstring and fractal audio. i feel like things have changed and forums arent as active as they used to be though
Can I send your music to some famous people like John Petrucci?
come to Japan
would love to!
Heyy I finally understand your display picture on Sevenstring. Do you still go on such forums?
not so much, i get my fix of interacting with internet people via facebook and ask.fm now haha. although that forum is an excellent community for developing musicians
Ever listen to An Endless Sporadic? I've been a huge fan of them since their song was on a Tony Hawk game haha. And also I get their kinda feel from Atlas so I was a little curious
i listened to one of their albums aaaaaaages ago, haven't in a long time. ill have to revisit them!
Heeey congratlations! you're a best guitar.. aamm in Atlas, what scale used?
depends on the atlas, although i would say at least 1:10000 if you want to cover any significant geographical area
\o/ looks like a drowning guy with his arms up please don't drown
drowning in AWESOMENESS
REME MEANS FRIENDSHIP AND ITS FROM AMERICA YOU HAVE CATS IN AMERICA BOOM CRACKED
