Music addict, love playing guitar ! Electric or acoustic. I enjoy having friends that turn me on to new music. Retired and would like to jam with people now and then. I would enjoy helping someone create an album. I hope to create an album comprised of rock, progressive rock, classical, blues , folk, blue grass. Not interested in joining a band due to health issues, hopefully that will change !

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

The reality is that a happy musician plays because it makes them happy. Earning money as a musician is difficult because most people will spend 2 dollars for a cup of their favorite coffee on a daily basis and never buy a cd or download a 90 cent music track. Buying a track or an album should me much easier than it is at all the major sites. As it is now you have all the passwords, codes , pc platforms download errors, cd burning errors etc. I miss the vinyl days and the simplicity of recording cassettes and playing them in the car. I don't miss the scratches on the discs LOL-cd's get messed up too ! My I phone with blue tooth on has been my most often used listening tool.

The short attention span of todays listeners. People seem to have too many distractions or lack of focus these days to notice great music.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

They should play music people love and engage their fans.
