** I took the initiative in 2020 to challenge myself creatively while in captiviity - write a new song every month.

While I have been overwhelmingly disappointed in general with what I thought this website was supposed to be about - getting musicians and writers together, there has been little to no contact from anyone since I joined in 2009. Despite this I have not let that disappointment stop me from putting myself out there. It's me, it's certainly not perfect, but it's all from my heart.

It is highly possible that I suck and just don't realize it. However I'm still hopeful of meeting kindred spirits. Here's to hoping... **

Still seeking experienced, down to earth, no ego, musicians / singers / songwriters for collaboration on original music. Come on muse - where art thou?

Pet peeves.
If I reach out to you at least extend the courtesy of a reply - "sure" or "no thanks"?
Profile states "Expert" with no audio or video links. Let the community hear or see you.

Self-loathing musician of over 30 years writing and recording alone, well mostly alone. The best listening experience, if any exists, would be with headphones, (Be kind and don't subject others to this crap) Enjoy these or not - I really won't know.

The Creator, (the deity - not a band) Musically in no particular order, Abasi, Petrucci, Gilbert, Paganini, Morse, Bach, Methany, MacAlpine, Lane, Johnson, Lukather, John5, Vai, Vaughn..the list goes on. Thanks to Ace Frehley for making me want to play in the first place. Thanks to all the others for sharing their talents, tips, advice, and example.

I don't play or sound anything like them, however each has inspired me to pick up a guitar and play while at the same time depressing me enough with their ability that I want to quit, so thanks for that.
