I just love "GOOD MUSIC"
Three chord progressions bore me!!!!
I listen to all styles from Bach to Jarvis and still learning!!!
Will never stop-------I have been blessed with a fair amount of success playing music and speak the language (theory trained) fairly well!!!! Please be of just mind so we can communicate and not bang heads, cause I have met some real winners (if you know what I mean) since moving to Texas from New York. I am very strong willed but love the musical debate!
