My name is Rob Ash. I'm a retired former professional illustrator/designer who's been a musician for more than 30 years. I did an almost 4 year run in the mid to late 80's making a living in a circuit metal band. I mostly consider myself a serious amateur musician. Everything I know is self taught. so keep it light on the theory if we chat...:)
I'm here to hopefully form new collaborations and to get my stuff critiqued. I'm a member of several other sites where you can get your music critiqued, and I always comment on other people's songs on about a 5 or 6 to 1 ratio when I post on of mine. I don;t have an ego problem, and take criticism very well. Praise is nice, but serious, thoughtful comments on my songs means much more to me. I try to offer the same when I comment on the work of others.
Glad to be here, and I hope my experiences here are as positive and helpful as they have been on similar sites.
"Parents are notorious for telling you not to do something, but not telling you WHAT to do instead. So here are my thoughts. Don't bite the hand that feeds you, give it a manicure. Don't burn your bridges, go out and build more! And of course, Don't run with Scissors, use them to cut out your press clippings!" -Brian Austin Whitney
