Yeah, I think composing is one of the things I'd like to do, but don't have the talent. Sort of like when I wanted to be QB of the Packers when I was a kid,

I'll get stuck, but want to finish something and I'll just repeat with some small changes and then that's all I have. Its fun, I like playing guitar and I like the challenge of recording and playing around with Reaper and plug-ins, but I don't think its really for me. There's really nothing there. I think I'm better off entertaining myself by doing covers of what I like.
