Recorded songs

I have been writing songs on and off all my life but got back into it in a big way a few years ago, which is when I put a lot of songs on YouTube. I just thought that it was a waste if nobody ever heard them. My songs tend to be melodic and, although I am a big rock music fan, my songs tend more towards Todd Rundgren and Hall & Oates than Def Leppard and Black Sabbath. I am an average guitar player so I often supplement my lack of musicianship with the additional use of Trio for drum and bass, and Band in a Box for full band arrangements.
