    Hi, I’m in a similar situation as you. After years of gigging, various bands, etc, I’ve decided to get into home recording. In May 09′ I sold a bunch of guitars, pedals, and various music equipment and bought a 15″ Macbook Pro and Logic Studio 9. After 8 months I have about a dozen half finished songs. It’s a long, slow, painful process, but I’m getting there…albiet slowly. Good luck with your projects. I hope we both find success with Logic.

      it’s fun though; used to wish I had paid attention to the whole process when I had recorded in studio’s (instead of sitting on the couch asking them to turn on “the big speakers”), but now I have something to do. it’s going to take forever to learn how to do this properly, so looks like I have a lifetime of fun ahead of me. good luck with your stuff as well. got any links to some music you’ve done?

    Hi, not yet. I don’t even have a decent website up yet. I like yours, how hard was it setting it up on WordPress. Are you happy with it? How difficult is it to maintain?

      wordpress was really easy and cheap too. the only thing I had to pay for was space to put the music (i think it’s like $20 a year). you basically get a template from them and then tweak it to your liking. let me know when you get something up.
