I wish I could nail it down, but I'm just too flakey for that. My music runs from Americana to Zydeco. I've written a Punk song that features Kiri Te Kanawa. That should be a hint.
I write children's songs, love songs, drinking songs, vulgar songs and spirituals.
I play the guitar okay and I know how to work a bass. I can find my way around a flute. I bang on the piano, and with varying degrees of competence (generally on the lower end of the spectrum) play the flute, saxophone, clarinet, trombone, trumpet, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, and didgeridoo.
I subscribe to Robert Heinlein's Perfect Man idea (http://izquotes.com/quote/390848) and I've done most of the things on that list. I haven't died gallantly yet, but it's on my bucket list.
2019 Goal: Some really good music that I can polish and shine. Really like to try to get at least one ska piece done, a formal "composition", and some collabs.

Awesome dude. I need the 14/28 challenge 😏
Yeah that fixed it, didn't need to include my own http >.< Thanks again 😁
Thanks for the note about the links - I've noticed similar issues on other profiles, so I probably should have checked me own 😀 Possibly a FAWM issue setting a default prefix
Yo! We doing the 14 lbs in 28 days challenge again?
Happy 2019 Brownium, you mutli-instrument-machine!
