Guitar News Weekly
Edition #45 - June 21, 1999
Marty interviewed on "Cryptic Writings":
We just wanted to make a record that was for the fans as well as for us. We have songs for our long term fans like "The Disintergrators", "FFF", "Vortex" and that type of stuff. We also have songs like "Trust" and "A Secret Place" for people who are just discovering us now. It seems like "Trust" and "A Secret Place" are favorites with people who are not familiar with the past Megadeth stuff. Then we've got song like "Have Cool will Travel" and "Sin" which sound like they could fit into any of our records that we've ever done...

After joining Megadeth, Marty recorded Scenes, released in 1992. This richly textured album, recorded and produced in part by Kitaro at his own 32-track digital recording studio, revealed that Marty's musical abilities extend way beyond that of classically influenced speed metal. Scenes was influenced in part by the works of Kitaro, and explores the same melodic realm, but in a calmer, softer context.
A Marty Misconception: "The misconception about me is that I know technical stuff about scales and modes ... I [can't] read or even write music. To this day people like Max Norman say, "You've got a scale for everything!" But I don't know scales! I've always been an ear player."
