I'm a songwriter/ composer in all sorts of genres with a back catalogue, most of which has never been played. Have played guitar since 1963, been in many bands and written a musical play called The Black Preacher set in the ACW. I stopped gigging due to illness but miss it too much. In need of inspiration and material which allows improvisation, not 3 chords.
