I have played music my whole life, from a toddler on up.
I played in bands as a drummer many years, I wrote my first song, and became a front man, singer- songwriter.
I am a disabled musician. Most people do not notice it, because it can not be seen, 100% loss of feeling in my left hand since 4th grade. When I do a song, esp. playing a vsti, I must do right hand, left hand, separate. I made many samples, loops, 1,000's from my home studio Outside Seattle until the crash of 08-09 and to this day, the real collapse continues.
I also must use a lot of loops in my music, many recorded live by a musician, MIDI files
My favorite role in music is hands down as a Producer first, my love, and have helped many for free, wrote them songs, recorded them, my Producing days,
I Produce all my music as a solo artist.
I have been told I am more of a composer, I agree, but I do not read a note of music.
If it is not broke do not fix it LOL.
I turned 60, I took several years off music, as I was in education at the time as a Professor, and another school as a Master Herbalist founder, Mentor.
My other page under D'Abaldo was doing great. I see changes in SC, not the same interaction, I hope to do my small part to change that.
40 years playing, after all these years still learning.
