Hi guys!

I compose and play music too. In fact, I have absolutely no formal training in music. My dream is to become a successful musician/songwriter someday.

I love all things DIY. With this spirit, a few good friends and I compose, record, produce and promote our own music all from our humble studio. 100% DIY!

We recently released some of our original songs online. Feel free to check out them out at:


Really hope you will like the songs :)

Im heavily into music, I write as much as I can, which is a bit funny because I don't have a single completed one. I have about 80 billion +1, halves, 3/4s, intros, and loose ideas but can't just get a single one done.

Find a guitar, look at a few chord charts and you can play, No need to read music for basic guitar, when it says "G" you play a G chord ;)
that's exactly why i like guitar.

I wrote the words to a song years (and YEARS) ago, that I had put to music (sounds terrible to me)....I still have the cassette somewhere....but now can't even play it unless I stuble across a cheap working player.

how interesting!

unfortunately for me i cannot read music and can't play any instruments, though i've tried a few!
Ooops, I realize how my last post could be misinterpreted....I had (someone else) put it to music (I can write poems, but can not read music either). I can play harmonica, IF there are the little numbers and arrows above the notes :-D

hahah, I'm going to do the same!

i could play a little recorder when i was in year five (age 11)
i've tried piano and guitar but struggle to understand the notes and can't use my left hand to play the notes, i have to reverse them to right

There "are" left handed guitars out there (or I thought I had heard of such a beast) but don't know where one could be found nor how expensive it'd be. That's the nice thing about the harmonica, although the notes are (somewhat) left to right, the left/riight handedness doesn't come into play really.

haha, i tried harmonica once upon a time but never took to it that much!
My first one was a Honer Marine Band in the key of C.  The enclosed instructions sheet had me playing When the Saints Come Marching In, after about a half hour or so.....but thankfully we are not all the same and all have different talents.....can you imaging a band made up of ONLY harmonicas?   LOL
