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!

    I'll try to track 'em down.
    I may have made a promise I can't keep.
    We'll see.....

    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!
