There's not too much to say about me. I'm 24 years old, and have been playing for about ten years now.

Some of my past projects include:
-Pat N' Andi
-The Shadow People
-Dripping Wet
-Mistaken Prophecy

Most of my songs are more acoustic-based, although I do enjoy a fine electric-guitar driven song every now and then. I'm hoping to start writing some nice jazz tunes soon, and maybe break into the trip-hop scene.
Uploaded!: Really quick, I uploaded that bluesy song into my music
. Of course, I use the word "song" loosely, since it's kinda far from being a full song.

Enjoy, and leave me comments!
A realization: I think I'm approaching songwriting from a wrong perspective.

I was in high school when I first picked up the guitar. The only people I knew back then who also played were really really good, or so I thought. You see, they were the kind of people who have this compulsive urge to solo over everything. To them, you were nothing unless you played riffs and soloed all day long.

I was never like that. I've never been great at soloing. I enjoy playing chords. Back then, I enjoyed playing simple, open chord songs, and I was made to feel like dirt for it.

I guess that's stuck with me all these years. I've been trying to write riff-based songs because, as I learned in high school, it's the o...
Blues-based song number one: So last night I started the framework for the first new song of my album. It's nothing more than a simple G, D, E chord progression and a bluesy riff, but it's a really good start considering the drought that I've been experiencing as of late.

I think I'm having some problems with my Tascam recorder, though. The USB latentcy is making it almost impossible to record three minutes without it harming the waveforms. I'll have to do some more research on that, because both my computer and the Tascam are basically new.

I'm going to work on this song more in the next week, and hopefully I'll have some sort of demo I can upload on here. Until then, wish me luck... I'll need it!...
