My name is Damo.
I followed over from RR. This site looks pretty cool with some nice features. I usually just read posts but I think I need to get a bit more involved if I want to improve.
I really like how everyone gets along on here. Very rare on the forums I have been on. Especially for a topic like music.
Ok so my background…
I grew up in Australia but live o/s now. I’m 40 years old and have been playing music since I was 16.
I had a few different bands with some friends and we played a couple of parties that’s it. The bands I was in were punk and pop rock. I used to do a bit of recording on an 8 track and one of my bands went to a studio for a weekend to record a few songs.
Then I lost my passion for music at about 26 until a few years ago I started playing with GarageBand on my ipad and that was the it for me.

That’s it. You wouldn’t believe how tight my budget is.
My singing is not terrible but average at best.
I can’t play lead on guitar but I think I’m not bad at rhythm.
Mixing I am terrible. That’s why I’m here.
Originally Crowded House made me want to write songs. Then I got into punk music. These days I like acoustic guitar based stuff and pop music.
That’s about it.
Thanks for all the tips I’ve gotten so far.
