Nice To Be Here!
on: December 03, 2018, 20:28:13
Well I attempted to introduce myself a few times . The first time I was logged off because I waited too long. NOt sure what happened the second time. This is my last effort to do this.

Thanks to all who are responsible for this site. Really cool! I'm new here.

I don't want this post to time out again, so I'll just say I'm a long time musician and multi instrumentalist. It's a hobby for me.

I play lots of different music but online my music is all similar. I'm a weekly pianist. No not a weak pianist. They pay me to play.
I play lots of stuff and enjoy attempting to compose. Notice I said "attempt".

Really nice to meet ya's here!

Here's  some of my music-  www.soundcloud.com/starise

Hey Tim.......I'm listening to your Celtic  Sunrise tracks here in my office. These pieces are very nicely done......very cohesive arrangements and well produced.

Welcome to The Kitchen. Take a look around at some of the other threads.....you are bound to find something that resonates with you.

@ Dutchbeat, Thank you for such a warm welcome! Nice to have met you! ::thumb::

@Bill , Nice to meet you. Thank you for the welcome and info.

@Leonard Scaper , Comments much appreciated. You look like a real straight shooter and the kind of person who is probably the glue that  helps hold this place together.  It takes a lot of time to listen and comment on others works which often goes unappreciated. I have seen you do some of that already here. Hats off  to you!  ::thumb::

I don't use smilies. I don't speak smiley, ie I never know which one to choose.
Maybe it's because I'way past the best before date. Or past sixth grade age.

If you're a friend of  MrBouzouki's, you're more than welcome.
That thought alone makes me very curious of/about the music you write.

I hope you post something real soon.
Welcome!!!
Kind regards, Gus

Thanks Gus. NIce to meet you. I met Mr. Bouzouki on Soundcloud. He's a great guy.

As for the smileys. I guess I never grew up. :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :)

My music is varied but you mostly only see one kind of it on the web, though I have been working on some classical of late. I'm odd so my music is often well......odd. Not odd in an overly odd kind of way  :D

@Timothy Smith  - welcome to the club. Good to see you persevered and tried 3 times. Mighty fine looking piano in your avatar. Do you have recordings of just that one instrument?
Enjoy the forum

Thanks Guys!  I usually don't fit in. Maybe this is a first!

That piano was along the curb in a city close to me. My wife took a pic of me playing it and the rest is history. I have a bunch of piano recordings though. Mostly keyboard pianos  ;)
I play a Shimmel at church and REALLY like that piano. The main problem is recording it well.
