Im hoping to soon
I'm not sure why you'd think your gender had any bearing on my view or on how I replied but anyway, re your last post don't worry about it. If forgiveness is needed you got it. We all sometimes say or write things and wish on reflection we could reel them back in again. In fact in a song I've recently finished the second verse is
" Now sometimes words should remain thoughts and not be spoken.
Sometimes they fly away before they're ready to
and like a bird that's fledged to soon and ended broken
I am alone again and broken without you......."
In your reply to my first post in this thread you seemed to be on a bit of a downer when you were wondering if anything would come of your songs.So what I said was a response to that and not a comment on your future plans as a writer or performer
All I was trying to say is that by enjoying the process of writing and sharing you music and having others enjoy it , something has 'come of it/ them' maybe not commercially but you've written them performed them and the audience has enjoyed them, but I suppose its question of definition.
So I wasn't saying wasn't suggesting you shouldnt make plans or have ambitions or that you should 'just have fun'
Millions of songs get written by both ameteurs and professionals that rarely if ever see the light of day/end up being recorded but they're none the less valid as artist expressions of the writer.
Keep on keeping on as they say!
For me its Angeline the Baker or Angelina Baker (see I can't even work out whats its called!!)
I just never seem able to get it bouncing along the way it should do - even on those rare occassions when I actually play the right notes in the right order!
But I am not defeated yet!!
I think I have DAD but its still in its early stages as I only have one but I know its a slippery slope. I'm constantly looking at others. Only my lack of finance and my wife (OK mainly my wife) are keeping this condition in check at the moment.
She said the other day, having caught me yet again coveting more Dulcimers 'You've got one.How many dulcimers does one man need?'
I thought I know just the people to ask!
So whats the answer?
