my advice to you
Don't under-estimate the magic inherent in everyday ordinary life.
I've been playing guitar and writing songs since I was fourteen. I'm now forty. It's something I do, a bit like breathing. I have no urge to perform in front of large crowds. And I don't want to be the next Justin Timberlake or Johnny Cash. But I like the idea of being able to share my songs with people. And websites like this have made that possible. Up until this year, I used to just record them on my four-track and send CDs out to friends and family. This is much more fun. Occasionally I talk my wife Tui into doing background vocals for me and that seems to lift the songs. I also jam with my younger brother songwriter extraordinaire Duncan Gillies, calling ourselves The Apocalyptic Folk Club.
