Apart from writing songs (see above), I also play guitar (which I write my songs on) and have played Bass in a couple of bands (a mixture of original material and covers).My current bass is a Rickenbacker 4001 which I mainly bought because Paul used to play one. Apart from that,they both sound and look cool!As for songwriting, I currently have 697 songs at the time of writing, all in various states of completion. The best ones though are among the last 100 I have written and they are the ones I pay most attention to. The rest before that are what I would call a songwriting apprenticeship, where I learned the craft of songwriting. While they may not be that good as songs go, it is possible that in some there may be snippets of lyric/ melody/ chords that could be used in other songs that I am working on. Almost like some kind of musical scrapyard.
