I've been doing this, making music, ever since I can remember. The first musical instruments picked up were autoharp, accordion, recorders (soprano, alto, tenor and bass), clarinet, kalimba, and one of those cheap cheesy Magnus chord organs. It wasn't until the acquisition of my first synthesiser that I began to compose, record and perform in earnest. I would say that the real music making process began around 1960, or sometime thereabout.
Well, I'm still at it. This is what I do. I am probably going to be doing it for a long time to come. I figure, as long as you got a pasion for something, do it cos it's better than doing nothing at all. I also figure that the best way to go about it is every which way, any which way. Let nothing hold you back from trying out new ideas and let no one tell you it can't be done. If they do, ust ask "why the heck not"? Then, go right ahead and do it anyway and, while you're at it, just be yourself. If no one can like you for being that, then to hang with it.
In the end, it's all about the music. In the end, it's all about whether you will like what you have done. If others like it too, then that's a bonus.
