I didn't know what I wanted to do next as far as records. I felt I had a writing block, and I wanted to do something new and fresh.

I'll play stuff all the way from the beginning to now. I really enjoy that because for me, the show has more variety when we do that.

It has always been my greatest joy to explore and create my own unique thing.

Whatever piece I write and record, I feel a certain way about it, and it's really nice to run into people who say they like it too. That's the whole reason I do this for a living. I want to try to communicate these feelings and have people feel the same way as I do.

The electric guitar is not my instrument. Really, the nylon strings is where I have my voice. It's like asking the piano player why he doesn't play the organ.
