My talents include:
- Composing (er, Kompozing!)
- Guitar, Classical
- Guitar, Lead
- Guitar, Rhythm
Most of my competence is with playing guitar but occassionally I'll convince myself that I can do other things.
Cheesy heavy metal is what first inspired me to start playing guitar way back in the 80's. At the time chops were the emphasis over songwriting so that's what I spent most of my time working on. When I finally did get around to trying to make my own "serious" music I'd suffer from writer's block. With that being said, I could churn out original "non-serious" material pretty much non-stop.
With real life taking a priority I took a hiatus from music for about 10 years. When I finally returned to guitar a few years ago my new focus was to become a better musician and not just a better guitarist so that I could finally create some real "serious"music. However, even with my renewed focus on becoming a better musician I've found that the non-serious material still flows naturally...it's just musically better than before.
So, I've lurked around Kompoz for awhile looking for the "right" projects to join but I haven't found enough opportunities where I feel like I can just step in and contribute. So I figure I'll just unleash some of my own material and see where that goes.
Music should never take itself too seriously.
