About Me

Hello there. I’ve been playing guitar and writing songs, VERY avocationally, for 25 years. I’m not terribly prolific but just from sheer passage of time I have 40 or 50 finished songs….

Or so I think! I’ve decided to work toward the guitar and songwriting master and try to get an idea of how to make my finished stuff better, but also to develop strategies for being a little more prolific—I can see the possibilities already just from Chapter 1 of “Writing Better Lyrics”…

Not thinking of quitting the day job (self employed attorney) but just looking to spend more time w this process and hopefully learn a lot…
