Just thought I'd see if there's people out there interested in playing, maybe recording a few tracks if we strike the right chord (pardon the pun), or just a fun jam at an open mic somewhere

.I have a bit of amateur recording equipment, and I play the occasional acoustic night (less at the moment while I write a thesis) I work full time so don't have time to be ultra-committed, but do enjoy music and am passionate. I write songs, also do select covers. The main type of stuff I play is acoustic folk / alt. country / celtic range of influences, although I also love a bit of electric blues, and can play a bit of blues lead, just never got into a band to be able to follow that up properly. My own writing tends to steer towards country, although I always used to say I hated country. I used to say the same about geology aswel though, and now I'm a country singing geochemist. There's probably an Alanis Morisette song about that somewhere...
