Tell us about yourself and how you found our group?

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.

What instruments do you make music with (voice counts) and for how long?

Guitar, songwriting and singing (3 1/2 years).

What kind of music do you like?

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.

Have you even been a member of Songmakers, or do you know anyone who is a member?

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.

What Michael M. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love it.
