Feeling a bit camera shy


Starting in music as a boy was natural, my father being a musician playing country and old time R&R, for me it was school choir and piano lessons until 12 or so, then high school rock bands (sorry about the big hair band thing, it was bad for us all..)
After that came music school, 2 years, Graduated ( somehow), guitar\vocal major.
Then a strange thing happened, some friends of mine had a band and their Bass player broke his arm and they had a show, " Would I cover him?" sure I would. Funny thing is, I fell in love with the Bass. I spent 10 years playing Heavy Funk Metal in bands like Trip Fly, Pretzle and Eugene's Garage, much in the style s of Primus, Rage Against the Machine, Faith No More, Mr Bungle, and things of that nature.
Sadly, bands are tough and so is life and things and times change. After many a crazy gig it was time to move to something new, and yet something very farmiliar, the campfire and the acoustic.
As a solo aritist, I felt a strong need to discover what it is to truly create something complete with as little as possible. No bands, no influences, no other input to conflict or distract.
"Can i hold a crowd. Just me, my guitar and a song I wrote, ?" If you can do this, you are truly a songwriter and an entertainer.
For the past few years I have been exploring this thought, and I think I'm starting to get it. Enough to start a trio again at least.
