    I'd have to say for me, it was Gentle Giant's "Free Hand". I got it when it first came out and didn't "get it" at all. Now, it seems mainstream, but back then, was a bridge over the prog Rubicon!

    ^^ I would be interested in the components you decided upon in building your DAW. I haven't upgraded my setup in years as I fear the limiting factor is my composing and playing more than the gear.

    It's interesting to watch him play "School's Out" in his tuning. Totally different fingering. A lot of barreing with the pinky! He seems to be a pretty funny guy when he wants to be!
