Paper Guitar
As stated in my bio and journal, my earliest poetic influences were the lyrics of various Folk and Rock musicians. When I began to write poetry as a teenager, it was only natural then that I would emulate those who had inspired me. As I continued to write, I soon realized that some ideas were better expressed by employing repetition, rhyme and rhythm. I would sing these poems in my mind or aloud as I wrote them down, in some cases even working out background vocals and instruments. At 17, I also began to play guitar, and continued to play off and on over the years, working out note and chord arrangements for several of my lyrics. I had and still have a habit however of getting sidetracked with other projects and relationships, and so never seemed to muster the energy and passion to practice every day as a good musician should. I haven't given up the dream, however as the saying goes, "So much to do and so little time." It's my hope at least that maybe some musician or rock group will someday take an interest in my lyrics, and with my guidance, record them. This has in fact happened already with one of my songs, Reign Of The Chrome People. In 2001, local Ottawa musicians, Marc Boucher and John Hummel put it to Pink Floyd style music and recorded it onto CD. Ironically, the lyrics were inspired by a painting Marc did back in 1987. There may be more of these collaborations in the future, God willing.
