What do you like best about creating music?

playing harmony and rhythm

Do you play guitar? If so, what kind of music do you like to play? OR, if not, what instrument do you play?

On mandolin, I mostly just read music, want to try to improvise more. I play with the Houston Balalaika Society, tenor domra, same four strings as a mandolin, but with a rounded back. On guitar, I know about a dozen chords, need to practice jamming.

Do you sing? If so, what kind of songs do you like to sing? I

Folk songs in general -- often in Spanish; used go to sing Eastern European songs with a group that meets about once a month--a branch off from the houston international folk dance group.

What do you wish to get out of being part of this group?

I want to use more than 3 chords on the mandolin so I can jam better. I have a chord chart. I want to find people who want to form a mandolin/guitar orchestra. I have friends in some fun orchestras in Pittsburgh Pa. + Sarasota Fl. Mostly casual m's.

How did you become interested in music (whether it be listening to it or creating it)?

Started piano lessons early and went for a few years. High school band. Have usually been in one kind of group or another. Always kind of back-up, never solo or lead stuff.


I am a very casual musician, mandolin and guitar.
