Hi! Thanks for spreading my humble name in the subject line of a great number of messages.
I don't deny any of comments of Mr. Talan.
But I think there's something I must make clear. I'm not a professional guitarist and I have no intention to be a pro. I have a job and currently I am devoting myself to Japanese space programmes. Playing guitar (and hosting a Michael fansite) is my hobby using my spare time.
I have never ever insisted that I sound like Schenker. It is true that I am trying to play like Schenker, though. Actually I don't like Marshall very much so I don't use Marshall. In addition, I play totally different kind of music in another band but I don't change my guitar sound. This is my style and I know it's impossible to sound like Schenker.
I have no intention to STOP TRYING TO PLAY NOTE FOR NOTE because it's a fun for me and that's why I play guitar. I sometimes play on the stage, however I do so not for audience like Mr. Talan but for those who like to see myself playing note for note just as the Queensryche fans who want the band to completely reproduce whole set of Operation: Mindcrime album on the stage.
Of course, I don't think I CAN CAPTURE SCHENKER SPIRIT. If I could, I am not sitting on my office chair for the development of Japanese space projects, and I would go into music business.
In short, I am a mere amateur guitar player who loves Schenker just like many of those amateur guitarists on this list. I think I do nothing wrong and there's nothing to be blamed.
