We all know about how unreal things can get on the internet - how easy it is for some to pretend to be something they're not.
I was making all kinds of claims on zappa.com about the kinds of tunes I liked to play on the guitar and the kind of music I was able to compose and it occured to me I may not be being taken seriously. So, I whipped out a few tunes using a laptop camera and posted them on YouTube. These are not professional studio quality productions, but I think they speak for themselves.
The videos are grouped into six sections and a separate topic for my covers of Frank Zappa's music is in the FZ section of this site.
I've been playing guitar for most of my life.
I messed around with a piano for a few months when I was twenty one. I started playing it again for short periods of time here and there after 1993 and then got a bit more serious after 2010, but I've been playing it almost every day since April 2019.
I had an alto sax for a few months when I was twenty, but I had to sell it and didn't get another until I was fifty three, soon after I got it bad health got in the way. I started playing it again regularly in April 2019 and got myself a bari sax as well.
I started playing drums in April 2019.
As covered in my bio, writing songs was a very important step in my progress.
I've only got one "band" video on YouTube at the moment, a piece called Take It Or Leave It, and I've linked that in the Turbulator section. I'll activate this section when I'm ready to present more band material.
This jumps to the Covers topic in the Frank Zappa section, where there is a link that takes you straight back here.
