My name is Dennis. I'm from California. I am self taught in Piano and guitar (I tried with classes but I was too far into my bad musical habits and gave up trying to learn the correct way). I don't read sheet music but I still love playing. I enjoy banging on a real piano but now with Garageband and some headphones I can play at any hour.

I remember my first keyboard I got when I was around 12. My parents gave it to me for Christmas. It was a Casio. They said I was always playing on pianos of friends when we would visit so they thought I would like one. I would plug my headphones in and bang away for hours playing the same irregular, made-up, simple tunes. It had 3 drum beats and 4 instruments. None of them sounded like what they were labeled though. When I was 21 a girlfriend gave me her much nicer keyboard that she knew she would never use. It was such a step up from my original keyboard, that I was still using, that I couldn't believe I had it. This one had a recording feature and I was at last able to try a harmony with some of the made-up tunes I kept playing.

I was involved as a leader with a high school group at my church. We had lost our guitar players and I decided to buy a cheap guitar(still use it) hoping to learn to use it. Patrick knew how to do it and he got me started.(Can't thank you enough) Some of the songs I post(and now archived) I learned in this group.

Then came Garageband in 2005 and a Keyboard for it.(Thank you Maria!) Holy Cow! I love Garageband and what I am now able to do. I've never had a drum machine or played anything with complex drums so Garageband is absolutely great. I keep learning slowly and I am very greatful for all the input everyone gives me.

I wish I could make everyone laugh. A laugh is more rewarding than a compliment on a song. I don't know how to write funny songs though.

BTW: "Nuuute" comes from the name Manute Bol (7' 7" NBA player). I picked up the moniker in high school on the playground. People shouted "NUUUTE" when I had the basketball hoping to see me dunk. I did many many times.
