I'm an amateur finger style Guitarist who started playing at 16 but didn't start writing my own material until 2011 or 46. Interesting year for me. I had vivid dreams and melodies were coming to me almost nightly. So, if I woke up shortly after, I could remember them and they were not lost to the abyss.
My songs tend to be shorter than average in length (around 2.5 minutes) as I am able to express myself musically in that time frame without repeating myself ad nauseam with the desired effect of my listener satisfied with what they heard and hopefully wanting a little more.
I haven't had much musical inspiration in the past couple of years but I am hopeful that I can have a repeat of 2012 when my song A Spiritual Journey received a 98% peer rating and was one of 2 songs under consideration for a licensing opportunity.
