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
-5-chord autoharp in F
-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.
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.
Update 2017-09-05: I've done my 90/50 (I started on July 20 and posted song 90 yesterday!) and everything except my Eb trombone has made an appearance now. Very happy with how 50/90's gone for me, but also at the point now where 'real life' starts to take over my schedule and I'll have to back off a little, from necessity. It's been a blast, though, and I'm not completely out -- just backing off a little.
