Hi; new guy here. My username here is kind of an alter ego. I bought a guitar and started making up songs a few years ago when I was near a half century old. I aim for the humorous and offbeat or novelty type songs, just because that's the stuff I liked best when I was growing up. Sometimes my lyrics spill over into the more serious or traditional areas, too. Mostly they're poems, and I'll add a little musicality tagged on afterward. I like to trot them out at the open mics. I'm also a music theory hobbyist; I enjoy discussing the structures and science behind what makes music work.
