I usually do, and I love to (I play Gmod with random fans sometimes) but my friends list is currently full. :(

Anonymous said: Would you mind sharing what plugin you use for your strings?

I use Kontakt 5 with a plethora of string sample libraries. Symphobia and Session Strings make up most of my “filler” strings, background chords and such, but my favorite are the Embertone Libraries. Not many people use those, but they’re the best I’ve found as far as realism goes.

Those weren’t mine actually, I grabbed them off a guy that I met earlier. xD

Anonymous said: A sheet music book? That's awesome! Can you try that with 'Someone Like Me', 'Something To Give' and 'Where I Belong' maybe? I'd really appreciate it!

Something to Give is wicked simple, as it’s just literally five chords through the song, but the other two are definitely going in there!

Nope, but Linkin Park definitely was!

Anonymous said: Have you ever considered releasing the sheet music for 'Find Me'? It is quite possibly the most beautiful piece I've ever heard on a piano and would very much like to replicate it.

I’m thinking about making an actual book of sheet music, because people seem to really want certain songs, especially Find Me. That’ll probably be my next merch project. xD

Also, this is an open invitation for people to suggest music they want in a sheet music book.

Anonymous said: I happened to notice that the drums in a lot of the songs in GITC are very similar. For example, the chorus drums for Set Me Free, Slice of Life and Restless sound like the same kind of drums. Is that you rocking out on a drum set or just a plugin?

It’s just a VST, but I do use the samples on multiple occasions to bring some continuity to the album. I WISH I could play drums. xD

That’s 50 that sold out. There’s another 50 that are going to EFNW, and any that don’t sell will come back here.
