I don't write it for them, I write it for me.
I used to say exactly that. I've written and recorded hundreds of songs since I was about 14. I'm now 48. I'm to the point where I'd like to write music that everyone can enjoy. May I hear something you've done? I'd be happy to lay down some guitar. I get the job done quickly. I'm playing the guitar on that track. I'm also playing the organ and bass on the keyboard. I also played the beat. I like to take people's ideas and run with them if they let me.

I get that. You're certainly not the first to come around to that way of thinking. I suspect Herbie Hancock could write a book on it for instance. But I'm not you and I ain't Herbie Hancock. I write what I write because I truly enjoy the process of writing and recording. And while I enjoy and admire tons of stuff that attracts and audience and sells well, that simply isn't the music I want to make nor could make even if I wanted to.

This is the most recent album. It was really just a collections of songs that I had done so its a little more all over the map style wise than I would like. But it gives you an idea of what I do I suppose.

I might be open to that. I'm putting together ideas now for an album that's a bit more ambient than most of what I've done in the past. I'll keep you in mind as that progresses.

That's very listenable. I listened to the likes of Jarre and Larry Fast when they were big. I've composed a lot of stuff in that vein. Most of it is unfinished. I've recently had the urge to make some New Age, so the music will get appropriated. I can fall asleep to it, but my GF calls it "soulless". I'm going bigger.

Here's some minimalist stuff.

A mutual friend of ours said the old version of the song reminds him of Plush and Alive, so it's not original. Yes, I heard that the 1st time I heard it, but I tried to change it. What was played for me and what I composed are different. It's hard to disguise influence. It's weird when someone doesn't recognize it...like my new jamming buddy. Is it original enough?
