I spend a lot of time learning great songs that I hear and say, "I have to play that myself." In this regard, I would like to really master a set of songs to play at open mic nights and similar events. I have also written a couple of songs for previous bands I played with. I love the challenge and creativity of songwriting, and, while I do not have much time for it these days, I could see myself getting back into it.
Yes, I have played in two bands and participated in a couple of performances. It is a nerve racking experience for me, of course, but my confidence is always higher afterwards.
Yes, I believe in the power of community to push one's abilities far beyond what would be achieved in isolation.
I am looking to start a 'rehearsal' group of musicians who meet regularly to practice songs in front of each other in preparation for real live performance. You can count on me to bring my focus and resilience in helping others achieve their goals of mastering a song set for performance. I would like to meet dynamic musicians who can open my eyes to the wide world of music.
I have played guitar for over ten years, sometimes intensely and sometimes as a hobby. I have played a lot of death metal but have also picked up some solo acoustic pieces too.
