a little more about me.

Hey folks,
What I want to talk about today is building my fan base. I know a lot of you out there like my music even though it is at this point very unprofessionally produced. I think it is mostly because of the songs and music I choose to play. I love to hear myself play the guitar and sing and I want to bring that happiness to more and more people and make a living at it in the meantime. Right now I am working at trying to write my own songs which has been very difficult for me for some reason. Writing the music and creating a riff or playing a melody off the top of my head is very easy for me. I can write instrumentals but I want to write a song with beautiful words that has an intelligent play on words something like John Lennon or Roger Waters used to do. This is where my problem lies. I can't seem to put together the right lyrics to my music. I have never been much of a poet but I am trying. I do have a couple of songs that are finished but not professionally produced. I need your help building my fan base. I NEED FANS so I am asking all of you folks that read my blog or listen to my music to become a fan and listen to the music I have posted on this site and also on my YouTube channel which is:  http://www.youtube.com/user/rdwill7849 . There is a lot of music on the YouTube site so please listen. One of these days I hope to get up enough nerve to perform live and try to play some clubs or bars by myself but that is going to be way down the road. I have to buy equipment and stuff before any of that stuff comes to fruition so please be patent because I am. Eventually I want to record my music and sell it to you folks who like it. To start out I will sell songs until I can make an album and then so on and so on and scooby doobie doo. Right now I just need acknowledgement fro you, the fans so please just so I can get an idea of whether this is working or not just leave a quick comment in the comment section and your email so I can get back to you and in the future I can send you my newsletter whenever I create it. Well that's all I can think of right now. Just don't forget to leave a comment and leave your email.

Thanks,
DW

Hey folks,
This is a tune that I like to play every now and then. It is "if" by Pink Floyd. I think this song was written for Syd Barrett because it has a line in it that say's: "If I go insane will you still let me join in with the game?" which is kinda the way Syd was kicked out of the band. He went insane and they didn't let him join in with the game. They replaced him with David Gilmore. Well I hope you all enjoy this version of me with my long hair and beard singing "If"

hand in my pocket

Hey fans,
This is a video of me playing the acoustic version of Alanis Morrisett's (may have spelled that wrong) "Hand in my Pocket". Hope you like it. No vocal because its a little hard for me to play this tune and sing at the same time and get it right.

Enjoy crazy folks.
