I've been noodling on the guitar since I was 15 years old and it never ceases to amaze me how much more there is to learn about music. I try to create music when the inspiration hits, and I don't worry to much about the technical details till later on. Many songs I have recorded I would be hard pressed to recreate because of the nuances or accidentals. And then there is the time factor...unless you write down every setting used and what equipment, sometimes it's hard to get back to where you had been when you recorded the original. That's why I never look back. I just keep recording new stuff. I'm having a baby daughter in about 5 weeks as of sept 10th 2010. Still looking for work also...Thanks for all your kind comments.
