Yes Mike, I get where you're at in your life. I turned down my chance of performing music as anything other than semi-profession way back in 1967 although had another chance with a group in 1969 but. I decided to keep the day job in engineering. 20 years ago my wife's uncle who played sax in various London ensembles from Joe Loss to performing harmonics for rock bands in recording sessions told me not to get too deeply involved in theory and sight reading. He reckoned it would kill whatever inspired my tunes. I'm just having fun in my music room (den) and enjoy collaborating with others in producing their music. I have to admit, sometimes folks read my posts as being angry but nothing could be further from the truth. I'd just like them to push themselves a little harder.

Mike, I listen to your clarinet, percussion and string work where I then wonder what all the noise is about elsewhere on the board here. You really must have spare time on your hands to bother posting here amongst so many never will be wannabes.

Kind regards
