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 :)

Cheers,
Alberta

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 ;)

I'd love to see some of your songs. :) If you'll share. I don't write many songs myself, but I do play other peoples songs. It might be cool if we collab-ed :)

sorry, i'm not familiar wit the term "collab-ed"? what does it mean?

unfortunatly i've tried many times to start a band but its hard to get long-distance musicians to stick around!

Like collaborate. You write words I put it to music. Of course I'm not always the greatest at making catchy tunes. But I could try.

Hello Shadowfeet, I would like to talk with you about this stuff.

I have a very decent poetical sense. And english for me is a second language, but I nail it with no problem at all. And would love to try and write something with the support of your musical sense.

I would like to know if we can have a chat some day.

Thanks

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.
