The music, I loved. My Music!

I am person that started playing and learning music only for one reason. When I was quite young, I wondered how music was made only by “scratching” a guitar. Just like that I started music, but first I had to beg my parents to give me such an opportunity. You see dear reader, I have a sister and a brother both very old (I have 10 years difference with the youngest) which unfortunately for them, were a disaster by the time they step into the music room of the nearest Music School, next to our house. So, ‘why would be different’, my parents thought. Why would I have to show for one more time that our family is useless in music and rhythm? This is how it works in my small, abandoned country, Greece. People easily take for granted that they are useless just because ‘it is not in the family’!

For my fortune, my parents gave me a chance, and I will be grateful to them for the rest of my life. I started music, and after 3 years playing on the piano, Bach and Tchaikovsky, I unexpectedly found out the jazz player inside me… It was the first time I heard the pentatonic, when my teacher decided just to play something for me so that I can see different styles of music. I was amazed. This very feeling still conquers my hearing whenever I play a pentatonic scale; also known as a Blues-Scale!

After some years of experimenting with various bands and music styles, I bought my first personal computer and the first thing I did, was of course to record my ideas. Gradually, I composed my first song. This one! And right now I am working on a huge range of music styles that are able to be made with the help of a computer and my Midi-Keyboard. I hope you like it…personally, I stopped listening to this song, when I realized how childish and maybe oversimplified the tune and melody was. But of course it is my music and I am Da Creator! So, I have to judge and criticize hard, because otherwise someone else will do it for me and then it is not going to feel the same…

Enjoy/ I will post more of my songs, as the moon phases pass through our own eyes!
