My journey as a songwriter

I started playing guitar in my teens, started writing songs as soon as I learned a few chords, I've been writing songs ever since. The last ten years I started getting into recording and built a small home recording studio. I also enjoy recording,I play guitar and some bass and usually rely on someone else to do drums or use programmed drums from addictive drums or loops, etc. I play out occasionally in local coffee shops , acoustic guitar/ vocal and play in Church every now and then. I really enjoy songwriting.
