I started learning guitar at age 50. I really love writing songs, especially writing lyrics, which I seem to excel at. The first song I ever entered into a contest was printed in American Songwriter Magazine. What a rush! I wish I could find someone who writes great music so that I could hook up with and turn them on to my words. Be the Bernie Taupin to someone's Elton John. I found your meetup while looking for some like-minded people. I hope I did.
Guitar, songwriting and singing (3 1/2 years).
I'm a classic rock guy when it comes to listening, but I write in all genres and will try to sing darn near anything.
no and no
It was either do or die. Learn an instrument now, or I never would. So I started learning guitar a few years ago; then writing songs, which I absolutely love. Highlights are songwriting with Jim Messina and playing at Nashville's Bluebird Café.
I love it.
