About Me

Also known as gibson or RatRidge.

Music comes from the soul as an expression of ones self. To use it is to release the feelings more effectively than talking about it or acting on them; to sequester it is harmful to your emotional well being. It is the curse of the artist but there are so many rewards and so many roads.

"If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music." ~~~Gustav Mahler
