I love to write music (sometimes compulsively) with piano my main keyboard. Second strong point is strings, followed by organ. I can use a midi-based system for arrangement (like many of us can). Since I can't sing, I use horns, clarinet, etc. sounds for leads.

I may be 63, but I don't look or act it (at least not so far). I still have all of my hair and teeth, and barely any grey. Not much in the way of fat either. I hope I can keep this up. See the photo at the left.

Tracks included are some that were recorded during the pandemic. Not bad for an old man if I say so myself.

Best time for rehearsal is weekends for me during a normal society; rehearsal time is more negotiable during a pandemic with social protests going on.

1970s Elton John (even though I try not to sound like him I still do), KXLU, KCRW, etc. I like far more music (especially obscure that no one ever has heard of) than is my style to write/play.

Instrument experience:



Mostly junk that still works. Barely enough but I make it do. My wife is tight on the purse strings, but I'm not broke. If I can show her something worthwhile she might let me spend some of my own money.
