I consider myself an instrumentalist who is primarily a guitarist and can fake my way around a keyboard/piano. I play a handful of other instruments - not well enough to brag or boast about - and with the exception of drums and percussion perform all instruments you hear on my recordings. For drums and percussion i do my own programming. I do this music thing strictly for fun and an escape - nothing more. I have been doing what i do since i was 10 and hope that i can keep doing it for many more years.
Music is just something I do for fun. I enjoy it.
Just to write and record music that I enjoy - while it is still fun and I am able to.
Peace, tolerance and respect. We all bleed the same colour.
I love music - and have from a very young age so there are too many songs to list.
BB King, Angus Young/Malcolm Young, John Fogerty, Tony Iommi, Manny Charlton, Randy Rhoads, Robert Johnson and too many other bluesmen to list here.
I don't really know. Most of my music comes from experimenting or improvising an idea and then building on it.
No message - i write instrumentals mainly and they are just improvised ideas captured in a recording and then i move on.
It has been 20+ years since i have performed in front of an "audience" - i prefer the creative side of music - i am a studio type - just like to create and run with ideas.
Thanks to technology, Music and the ability to create, produce and release it yourself is so much more accessible to everyone now. I think there are pros and cons to that. I also think it has diluted the musical landscape in a way while over-populating it at the same time - it is really difficult to stand out anymore, simply because there are just so many options now.
I have been here for about 1 year now and I love it.
Not having the time to do it as much as i would like.
I have a very busy personal life with my wife and 4 kids - i really don't get to go out and see live acts anymore, but if i could, that would be my thing.
I do this for fun and have no idea how one "makes it big". I just have fun with it.
There is a local guy to the Hamilton, Ontario, Canada area, Steve Strongman, who is fantastic. Blues guitarist / vocalist with an encyclopedic arsenal of blues chops. He his really really great.
