Music On Your Own Terms Episode 26 - Mike Abdow - Fates Warning/Ray Alder

This episode I have pleasure of talking with Mike Abdow, touring guitarist for Fates Warning, songwriter/producer for Ray Alder solo, guitarist for Aquanett, and of course, Mike's own amazing solo material! We talk about what led to his love of music, how he got the Fates Warning gig, killer memorization strategies, touring tips, philosophy, and writing with Ray Alder. I also couldn't resist the urge to nerd out a little on Mike's guitar and amp set up, and find out what Mike did before making a living as a musician.
