Newbie (1/14)



  1. 1. Do you sing, play an instrument or instruments? What instruments? When did you start playing? Did you teach yourself? I play acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar and harmonica. Started playing acooustic about 14 years ago, when I was 11. "Upgraded" to electric a year later and it has since then been my main instrument. Started playing bass when I was 16, out of necessity: the church I used to go to didn't have anyone to play that, so I stepped up. I only do it when absolutely necessary really. I do find the sound it makes pleasant to the ears, but to me, the playing itself is just not fun enough. Started learning harmonica from a friend when I was 17 and well, I'm still on the basics there. I don't believe anyone is really autodidact... you always learn from somebody, be it a friend, a relative, or a music teacher. As for myself, my mother taught me the first chords I ever learned. Then I took lessons in church (it was a social work, free of charge and stuff) for a month, and quit. Took private lessons for 3 months and quit again, classes were just TOO boring. Then started learning by myself. A couple of years ago noticed learning some theory couldn't do any harm, so I actually watched a BUNCH of youtube videos from various teachers and got to a point where I don't consider myself completely illiterate anymore haha. 2. Are you in a band or bands? Kind of. I play with some friends, but just as a hobby. None of us ever took it more seriously 3. Do you write songs? Yes, both the lyrics and the music 4. Do you record your music? Not yet. But I'm very interested in having a small home studio to record at least some basic things . 5. What other roles do you perform in the music business? N/A 6. Are you a tech head? Well, I know more than just the basics, but I would hardly call myself a tech head. 7. What country do you live in? Brazil 8. What are your ambitions? I'll assume this question pertains to musical ambitions. Well, I intend to be part of a rock band that is not just "more of the same". It may be just me, but I feel rock and roll is very weak these days for the lack of originality/creativity in most bands. 9. Do you draw/paint/write stories/computer art/dance or other creative pursuit? I rather enjoy writing some theories I have, mainly philosophical/extistential things, some analyses of human nature and society... but nothing too deep. 10. What would you like to get out of Songstuff? I expect Songstuff will help me develop my ability to write more meaningful lyrics, ones that after finished, I may actually read through them and think "well... that's pretty good"
