Getting Your Emotions OutIt is really therapeutic to write music. Sometimes I have a million thoughts in my head, and to play out a tune can really encapsulate those feelings and make something creative out of them.
I write music for the guitar and the viola. I use the guitar to create a basic melody with chords, and the viola creates a deeper tune over the guitar. I am influenced by flamenco and classical music -- my feeling is that no one could write music like the old masters.
I record the stuff I write onto my computer. I am too lazy to write it out on sheet music or anything that grand. Mostly, I write for myself.
