@larry-whitler There's a story about the composer John Cage, that early in his career he was studying under the famous composer Schoenberg, he was late to a meeting and his mentor berated him saying he had no sense of time or melody for that matter." Fine " he said then my music will not be about time or melody. He went on of course to change music forever. I think there's a lesson there for all artist , find what you do well, usually that will be what you love to do,in the beginning copying other styles is a great way to learn but at some point you have to give up looking around trying to do what's in style , what's selling, and find your own voice. Each of use are unique, Chris
