I have been playing for 25+ years. I started working with the computer 7 years ago, as a new form of expression and because I didn't have anyone to collaborate with.
I guess my goal is to find like-minded people to collaborate with, or at least to have long conversations about our musical interests. Ideally, I would like to license my music for backing tracks, commercial and soundtrack work, or whatever someone finds it useful for. Right now, most of my pieces are somewhat unadorned, as I am not a singer and not much of a lyric writer.
I'm a music junkie! My tastes range anywhere from John Scofield to Nina Hagen to Buck Owens and everywhere in between. The music I compose and record on the computer is produced entirely with open-source and free software. I'm also a junkie about surfing and finding all of that freeware.
Happy happy joy joy tech soul's Joe Buck!!!! We have started working on Country Slide... it's gonna be a poignant collage of funny/serious. I can't believe we weren't friends yet, but we are now and that's all that matters. Great day/goodluck and congrats on your stage of the day. May it bring hordes your way :-)Josh Nielson
