Default Changes...

I took a 30 year break from guitar after I got married, and now I'm back at it with vigor. I lament wasting those 30 years, but it is what it is.

I'm almost back where I was in skill level, and working at actually getting better than I was 30 years ago. But there is one big difference from my younger self: I have an interest in coming up with original songs vs. just imitating artists I admire.

I've been soaking up music theory this time and song writing is no longer a mystery to me. Over 30 years ago I remember a guy I studied from twice a week asked me if I was interested in learning how to come up with my own material, and I declined as I wasn't confident I could do it. Maybe I'm more secure in myself than I was 30 years ago?

My goal is to come up with something a recording artist can use. Just one song would do it. I have no interest in formally performing again. (Used to be a lead singer for a garage band).Unrealistic?
