A few days ago, I shared three of my original demos with my guitarist neighbor, mainly because I have had almost no interest from the ads I've been placing for musicians, to help me get my new band off the ground. I thought to myself, "This guy (my neighbor) has experience writing and playing originals and I've done as much as I can with what I have and he's always asking about starting something with me, maybe I should pass my songs on to him, he could put his 'spin' on them and perhaps we could record them as my 'solo' project." Well, as I said, I gave him copies of three of my songs and I found out today that he loved them! He said they were "catchy" and that, "They really kept my interest. I think you could have something here." We are now going to collaborate on some lyrics and see what we can come up with! Wooooo! I am so excited -- this is just what I needed to hear after hearing nothing but criticism and put-downs from my past bandmates for all these years! In your face, Ass Munkey (oops, of course I meant Brass Munkey)! "Yes! In the face!"
