Ever since high school in the early 80’s I wanted to learn to play guitar and always had dreams of playing in a band. For years I noodled around with my guitar but was always frustrated that I didn’t sound like whomever I was trying to emulate. I couldn’t play cover songs and at some point I decided to give up on playing other people’s music and thought I might try putting something of my own together.
In the very late part of 1999, I began writing music and crudely composing using my guitars and computer. Needless to say, the first few songs were pretty rough, but it was certainly rewarding to be a creator rather than just a consumer.
Over the next few years I experimented with various software packages and real instruments. I upped my instrument arsenal to include a Taylor acoustic guitar and a Peavy electric bass. I recorded a handful of songs that were mostly fingerpicked acoustic guitar. With that I felt a small sense of accomplishment, but always felt I might have more to offer.
At some point in the early 2000’s I wanted to dabble in electronic music and purchased a Producer license of FL Studio. Even though I’m quite computer literate, I felt a bit overwhelmed with this software package and it was quickly ignored.
At this point I went from a music creator to once again a music consumer. I didn’t play my guitars or try to compose any kind of music for almost 20 years.
Over the past 3 years I’ve enjoyed composing, mixing & mastering instrumental electronic music. I’ve become fairly proficient with FL Studio, however I haven’t seriously played guitar in quite some time. The one thing I am not able to add to my music right now are vocals. I’d really love to add a female vocalist to my mixes, so if you’re interested, please contact me through my contact form. Keep in mind this isn’t a job offer and is really nothing more than a collaboration on a hobby. I’d be more than happy to share any resultant income, but at this time, there isn’t any. I still have my “day job”, lol.
