I have been thinking about my “sound system” each time.

I have one band and one name while many musicians have many projects and many bands now a days.

I am making pots for others.

Yes, I do. It is sometimes bitter, though.

Yes, there are many similar forms.

No, hardly ever I have played them through again.

Very few. I can not listen to music while doing other things.
