About Me

Music has always been a part of my life. My first tape was Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet and my first CD was Weezer Blue Album.   Over the years I have used many different mediums to play music, but it all began with a guitar.  I took some lessons from an unconventional guitar teacher that emphasized improvisation and ear training rather than technical training (neither is more important than the other.

About four years ago I reconnected with an old friend and began to learn some new genres.  I took an interest in flamenco guitars and learned more about Afro-Caribbean Rhythms (Guanguanco, Bomba, and Plena).  This was an inspired time for me followed by a hand injury that brought everything to halt.

I began to realize that I could not play like before so I needed a new medium.  I began to learn about Digital Audio Workstations, or DAW’s.  The DAW that I am most familiar with is Logic Pro (Here is a tutorial if you are interested).  There are unlimited options with DAW.  It can be a great tool, but sometimes it can be difficult to focus your efforts.  I began my shift to hardware synthesizers and sound design.

As you can see music has always had a snowball effect on me; the more I learn the more I want to learn.  This blog will touch on a number of topics music related.  I’m open to any ideas and feedback that you may have.  Feel free to contact me at drobot198@gmail.com.  Take care and keep playing.
