What instrument(s) do you use to write your music?

Guitar, mostly. When I had a keyboard I used that too, to figure out the chord structure of what I was writing. But fortunately I've learned more guitar chords in the past couple years!

What comes easier for you - words or music?

I can do both about equally, but my lyrics have a little bit of depth to them, whereas my melodies are still very shallow. I can come up with great chord progressions - the 5 of 5 is my friend!

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

Myself mostly - I'm not comfortable putting words into other peoples' mouths.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

YES and YES!! Someone in Kitsap would be great, or who is available in Seattle mid- to late-afternoon.

What areas of your music experience are you wanting to improve? e.g. songwriting, marketing, networking, recording, airplay, gigs, etc.

Songwriting first; then guitar skills. After that comes the airplay; I'm building my network as I go and that seems to be coming along well. Slowly, but well.
