Bio

I began seriously learning classical acoustic guitar at 60 but determined by 67 that I prefer improv to regurgitation and began jamming with what I like on Pandora--mostly jazz. I love to harmonize. I am interested in progressive jazz and pieces that don't have a predictable groove. Like Tomatito's flamenco. Sometimes two instruments setup interesting harmonics. About 4 months of trying to learn to use a DAW and put out some guitar works, I happened to listen to what kenzoK did with flute on www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/90267. "It could have been gold". I was hooked and bought a student flute and took 5 lessons (like which hole to blow into) and have been playing by ear to Tidal for about a few years now. To me it's a feast of constant learning and this is my retirement project. Try a different instrument occasionally ... it's good for the little grey cells. --Paul
