Northern Ohio

I'm David Nicholson, a new memeber of JustPlainFolks. I live in Northern Ohio, Richfield to be exact. Half way between Cleveland and Akron off I-77. I've notice a Cleveland and Columbus chapter and figure since I'm WAY closer to Cleveland that by default, I'd be a member of the Cleveland Chapter. In addition to playing guitar I also diddle around a little on the mandolin and play 5 string banjo in the three finger Scruggs style. The banjo was actually my first instrument, but being a teenager in Cleveland, it was difficult to find many bluegrass pickers in my neighborhood, so that soon fell away to guitar.

I'm a member of the Summit County Songwriters Circle and have had great responce and constructive criticism from these folks but am always looking for more insight, not only in the writing and production catigory, but on aquiring gigs. I took a ten year hiatus in the late 80's, early 90's while raising children and when I got back into it, I found it hard to believe that to sing a song in a bar any more you needed a web site, pager, agent, press kit, mailing list, etc. to get a gig anymore. What has happened?

Anyway, here I am, that's my story. Feel free to click on over to my links below and let me know what you think. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. Especially on the subject of additional production of some of my existing songs. If you hear a great place for a break, or maybe even a 30 piece string arrangement in the back of one of them, please don't hesitate to let me know what you think. And again, any insight on what it takes to get a gig in the Cleveland/Akron area would be great.

Thanks again and hope to see some of you out there.

Are there any chapter events? And if so are they posted in this location?

I will definitely check out your stuff. Have you ever heard of One Way Rider? Family Bluegrass band from Kent. They are great but the kids now are both on the road touring, so the family doesn't play much anymore. check them out http://www.onewayrider.com Very nice to meet you!

A belated but very warm, "Welcome," David! Maybe we should plan a Cleveland Chapter post-holiday jam party...

Anyone interested?

Hello Everyone,
I'm a new member here as well, although not sure what took me so long to do so. My name is Marcus and I play with the Cleveland band Cuyuga as well as doing solo stuff around town.

Welcome David!

You can also post your intro message on the widely read "General Message Board", as there are many members with good advice in all things music, regardless of area living in.

You can post a song at a time on the MP3 Feedback Forum as well tp get thoughts on a particular song. If you do, let it be known what you want critiqued for possible rewrites, or if you just want to share your finished song.

Hey David! (Great name, BTW! wink ) Welcome! I will definitely listen to your music. I'm particularly fond of banjo and mandolin. Take care & blessings!
