File sharing, and the fact that the industry DIDN'T embrace it! It should have been handled differently, because none of us mind paying for stuff we love.

I'm really not trying to be a smart ass, but try something new!

This is an awesome question. What I did was I practiced 32nd notes on the open notes one string at a time, and tried to cleanly move from string to string. After a while I started to learn how to mute them with my right palm to control the sympathetic notes. After months of this I emerged as the dude you hear playing now. It also works with 16th and 8th notes depending on the tempo of your metronome.

There's too many great DP songs to make one superlative, but I'm awed by "One More Time" because I love watching people on the dance floor when the tempo goes away. It was great to work with them!

Study folks you like and your own style will evolve.

It's really weird to be in the spotlight so much, but Daft Punk, like CHIC, are semi-anonymous and they asked me to do most of the press. Of course I love the guys and wanted the record to be heard, so I took one for the team.

Writing my memoir Le Freak. It took four years. I guess cancer would be a close second.

YES! When I toil it may be good but it's never a hit!!!!!!

I also write on jazz and classical guitars, but most pop stuff is done on my Fender strat affectionately called The Hitmaker, for obvious reasons. Thanks, the Warehouse Project was bananas!
