Cheers from Winnipeg, Canada! Go, Jets, go!!!
Update January 2020: I haven't written a new song since December 2017. OVER TWO YEARS AGO! Quite a dry spell. But I'm starting to feel the itch again and hopefully I can find some free time to write/record something new this month. Even if it's single-take, lo-fi stuff. Something is always better than nothing! 😀
My modus operandi: I noodle around on the guitar and come up with ideas and riffs that catch my ear, and then I cobble those ideas and riffs together into something (hopefully) slightly catchy and coherent. I can't read music and don't know anything about music theory, so I've been wingin' it and playing by ear since I was a teenager. Sometimes I even feel compelled to add poorly written lyrics. Haha!! I don't take this whole music thing very seriously. It's a nice outlet and I have fun - that's what really matters. 😀
Thanx for your tunes, and for your amazing work on our collab; I figured you could knock that one out of the park, and I was right!
Your tracks are always a highlight of my FAWM!!
Excellent, excellent work, my man.
And on Paramount, too!
Makes me want to break out my 78s and have a listening party!
Sent them off.
Check your inbox!
I'll try to track 'em down.
I may have made a promise I can't keep.
Of course I remember you; no one plays guitar like you do.
I think I have some light-hearted blues lyrics around here somewhere. Maybe I'll send them to you and you can use them, or not, depending. (Yes, I'm trying to force you in to a Collab. 🙂).
Happy tenth FAWM!
Have a great one!
There are so few of us Manitobans involved I try to remember us all! 😁
Oh, DeafSteever - do you have something for us in 2020? I do hope so!
Hoping you'll be back to play with us this year!
have the best FAWM this year!
Are you there, bud?!?!?
