Music... a huge part of my life since I was a child. Now featuring a touch of grey but looking forward to my 40s being a musical decade!
Started FAWM in 2016. Have never looked back. 36 in FAWM 2016, 80 in 50/90 2016, 78 in FAWM 2017...
If you don't want to call me 'metalfoot' I also will answer to Alex.
My plans in specific for 2017 are:
1) To write a lot of music
2) To collaborate with some of my musical friends I made through FAWM and 50/90
3) To win 50/90!
Of special note with regard to point 2: I might not star collabs as my favourites, because I don't presume to speak for those who are kind enough to collaborate with me, but generally, my collabs are among my favourite tracks.
Instruments which will be sorely misused by my feeble skills this time around:
-Seagull Merlin M4 Spruce (a dulcimer-like instrument)
-Lonestar Venice mandolin
-Simon & Patrick S&P Pro Mahogany 6-string acoustic steel-string guitar
-Silvertone electric guitar with or without Zoom G1XOn (more likely with, though)
-Rogue soprano ukulele
-Bach tenor trombone (Bb)
-pBone alto trombone (Eb)
-Casio Celviano digital piano
-little black tin whistle in D
-whatever other instruments I find around here...
Also, I'm not creating a separate 'metalfootlings' account for my kids here. But they *will* be here, occasionally doing tracks alone or with dad. Any such tracks will be tagged #metalfootlings. Possibly might even drag my long-suffering wife into singing with me here or there. We'll see.
NB: For 2017, my family is on vacation the first three weeks of July (and I have a sneaking suspicion my wife would not be happy if I 50/90ed during vacation) so I'll be a little late starting. I will be here though, and hopefully can get a few songs in.
Actually, who am I kidding? I probably will still get my 50 in, if FAWM 2017 is any indication...
Update 2017-07-07: I had no idea how much I would miss playing along with all of you right now. Will have to go cruise an instrument store or two and buy something while on vacation here. LOL
Update 2017-07-14: Still on vacation. Another week and then I'm back to my instruments and computer...
Update 2017-07-22: Home from vacation. The songs are starting to roll...
Update 2017-07-30: Best review of one of my songs ever: "It's like a beautiful mosaic created from the shards of a toilet hit with a sledgehammer."
Update 2017-08-13: I still have to use the trombones and tin whistle but otherwise everything's had a moment in the sun.
