I have a channel on Youtube, where I go by the name Ian Trevor. I chose the name because it sounded so much like a guitarist's name. I was shocked to discover no matches for that name on Google. I have not searched for some years now, so I suppose there may be other Ian Trevors out there.
Bear in mind, my music was all recorded from 1999-2000, on a Yamaha MT4X cassette recorder. I had a toy drum machine that was not programmable, so all the drum tracks are monotonous. Nonetheless, I had a good guitar and an excellent effects processor - all explained in the vids - and I think by and large I did a fair job with what I had.
Note: This music is, save for one song, instrumental. Mostly I just laid down some simple riffage and provided myself an excellent excuse to solo to my heart's and fingers' content. If you don't care for electric guitar solos, don't even bother checking the tracks out.
The music ranges from very soft ambient music, to jazzy, to bluesy, to out and out heavy metal. There are vox on one song, "Child Again". The lyrics are available. I was doing my best Roger Waters impression.
The songs are mercifully short and the volume is LOW, since the tracks are converted to hard-disk from cassette. Some of the tracks have glitches and blank spaces due to pressing the wrong buttons during transfer.
Listen or don't, at your own peril.
I will, however, love you all the more if you take a listen! lol!
