I have been writing songs for more than 10 years now. I am always trying and progress by my writing skills with new influences, critique and constructive criticism from other songwriters and fans of music.
I have been playing guitar for the same amount of time now and almost since that time i was writing songs. I first saw the potential for "alone" when i still had my old spanish stlye guitar with only 4 of 6 strings actually tuned.
It was a overwhelming feeling when after tons of additions and "repairs" were done to the song. I felt it was finally finished back in the beginning of 2005 but i think with my new voice and my new outlook on life it will change.
