I'd love to know more folks who make music in addition to listening to it. I'm a singer (chorus mostly) and a pianist in the classical music world. Who else is out there?
I'm a self taught closet guitarist who just recently started doing open mics. I've done 4 so far. Getting some positive feedback even when I thought I sucked. I sing ok enough to accompany myself but would really love to do some harmony and duets. Some of the other musicians have friended me on facebook and invited me to other open mics in different towns so I guess I'm being accepted into the community. Kind of exciting for me.
My only internal clock works during partnered dancing. Own guitars, wind controllers, keyboards, bongos, congas, guiros, maracas, but I can do and produce music via software in computers, Acid, Band in a Box, Sonar and a few others. Write lyrics in 2 languages, Never had the inclination of being a musician like my daughters and son is the dancer now. Can't sing but do my own. I just posted a video. Welcome to our little niche of enlightenment with your talent. I can copy and receive International Morse Code, Military Trained, he, he, ha, he, he. No I am not a musician.
Lifelong musician here. Fumbled around with piano since the age of 4. Learned music theory playing trumpet at 8. Started learning guitar, bass guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele and drums at age 16. Been playing guitar and singing professionally since 18. Member of many successful performing bands over the years. Currently semi retired recording studio owner, engineer, producer, and recording artist. I'm always interested in collaborating with talented people. I have connections to major labels if I find a star quality talent.
Music producer myself, but a pianist at heart. Self taught and never learned to read music. I Had softwares that would emulate any instrument through my midi keyboard. Some with articulations that were so small that it came down to a variation in velocity, this allowed my to make some gorgeous music.
Listener only. Used to be a radio announcer/presenter/producer/supplier in all genres except pop or as I call it "three month shelf life pap". The religious housewives on the committee did not like my constructive criticism of their protection of inferior standards and of local commercial radio.
I am a music lover. I listen mostly to classical, but not to the exclusion of all other genres. I don't play any instruments, but I do write songs (lyrics with the tune in my head) for some bands around who want originals. There are a number of people here who play.
