Hello,
I’m a 50+ songwriter with like many others these days with a recording setup at home.
I’m not into the fame thing and never have been, I just wanted to write songs but oopz, that’s gone over the top with the recording stuff so I’m moving into recording.

I live in the boonies in MinneSnowda, Yaya you betya. an hour away from anyplace relevant to music and not interested in the internet collaboration but maybe someone here is close.

Welcome, Michael Andresen, to the campus of Songwriter101.

There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? http://www.garyeandrews.com

Welcome Michael. There are some awesome folks here on the Forum. If you don’t find anyone here in your area, perhaps you’ll reconsider internet collaborating. Take a look on Tune topics. A lot of those tunes are the result of internet collaborations. It’s an amazing experience. Through the internet, I’ve worked with folks all around the world (the US, Russia, France, the UK, Norway). Wonderful experiences. Yes, they’re not as easy as face to face encounters, but if you find the right musical partner, it can be a pretty seamless process.

Look forward to hearing some of your work. Welcome.

Thank you Jen :)

I’ll think on the internet collaborating and look around a bit. Moving slow…. :)


Peace.

Always advisable in these sorts of situations. Collaborating online can be a headache for sure, but if you watch how other folks work together you can get a feel for who is a pretty safe bet. When you find a good match, it’s amazing.  :)

I have to disagree with Jen. I collaborated with someone here on a song, and she turned out to be a complete nightmare. :)

So here I am wracking my brains thinking, “Has Gavin collaborated with another woman on this site (other than me) or is he just being his tongue in cheek self?” I choose the latter to which all I have to say is “Grrrrr Gavin. Grrrr!”

You could have spared yourself all that wracking. Who else would be daft enough to work with me on anything?

The answer to that question is absolutely yes. Michael, meet Gavin…our resident Doctor of fun-and-games and expert in sarcasm. Check out his song “Jeez Louise” or my personal favourite “How can I leave her behind” which is a song about bad tattoos in compromising places. It’ll put a smile on your face. Gavin’s specialty.

Michael,

Take all this with a grain of salt. Everyone uses Sarcasm and tries to have a good time. Enjoy and let us hear more from you. Any questions you might have, this is a good place to get some responses. Might not be brilliant, but always interesting.

“Bad Tattoos in Compromising Places” sounds like a rejected idea for a Garth Brooks song. :)

And with that…

I rest my case.
