About
From RI and am in RI, USA. I'm retired, I get bored, I just like to enjoy the days, I believe in God, married but do not share the same musical interests, I prefer having fun creating, not uptight about getting criticized, I'm not a performer, limited experience and expertise at the trade and playing, I've got a digital keyboard, Les Paul Studio electric guitar, 12 string Alvarez acoustic but use it as a 6 string, I got an Ibanez with a jack that plugs in, I got an old Roland digital recorder, computer with Garageband, sometimes am musical, sometimes I'm not in the mood, got space enough for a few people to jam, collaborated with one song, nonsmoker, a draft beer once in a while, I like fresh air, green grass, trees, shrubs, fruit trees, the country, a little gardening. I'd rather sit around and play half ass music with people I enjoy being with than among great musicians who aren't friendly. I like to sit around and play bluesy rock type music on my deck or outside somewhere by myself on a yamaha acoustic guitar I have. I'm basically losing my ambition to produce my ideas now cause nobody is interested. So has become just for praying or just for personal pleasure to play it out and forget it. I've been taking an interest at learning how to play songs of other artists on guitar. There are only two other artists songs that I can play all the way through are House Of The Rising Sun, and Me And Bobby McGee

Songwriting Achievements:
Nothing that I ever got paid for. Five thumbs up on youtube. Not one thumbs down out of probably a total of 400 viewers. Most listen and view my music videos for less than half the time of the full duration. I've written about 60 songs with lyrics only, and have put about 15 to music. Only about 7 or 8 are totally complete all the other ones are 80% to 99% complete, none came out exactly how I'd like them to sound. Most 60%, ones that I have been produced on a whim that I like maybe 95%, completed ones I put lots of time into, less than 80%.
The genres: Christian, rock, alternative, one original rock parody. I've discovered others while messing around but not completed them from intro to end.
Personal Songwriting Goals:
