Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat

I used Fruity Loops to construct drum rhythms and lengthy songs with crazy changes.. you just never hear em.

I have a Roland Juno-D synth keyboard and a CB start 5 piece kit, which is never used for recording but i thot i'd throw it in there :)

Hmm, lemme see:

Drum software:
- Fruityloops

Recording software:
- Cakewalk Guitar Tracks (main program used)
- Goldwave

Recording Gear:
- Johnson J-station
- BC Rich Warlock


My setup isn't the most technical, but it gets the job done :) *thumbs up*

There are two big ones for sheet music: Finale and Sibelius.  Both are costly, but I'm sure you can find 'em online for free.

For software...  Fruity Loops is my guess.

this is maybe the 3rd or 4th time I've listed all my shit on this forum lol.

Basses:

Steinberger Spirit XT-5 (5 string, headless - sweet)

Fender acoustic bass (its model escapes me but they only make 2 types)

Guitars:

Ibanez Roadstar II 1984 (OOP) (great for lead but not chunky stuff)

Squire Stagemaster - 7 not actually mine but it lives in my house. Its not bad sound for a squire but its a beast of a weight.

Some sort of Columbus acoustic guitar. Recently fixed the bridge on it and its now nice to play. I do a lot of composing on this guitar.

Some sort of 12-string acoustic. I never touch this. It scares me. Also its missing about 4 strings.

I have a Remo 5 piece kit lying around with sabian cymbols. I cant drum so this is only used when I can kidnap drummers.

When recording (which I only ever do to get a rough idea of how a song sounds) I just use cakewalk pro audio 9 on the worst PC ever. Schnoogins.
