Voice; I like to bang the tambourine but I never learned how to bang it; I play guitar privately because I never took lessons and I taught myself after being taught a few lessons from a nun in a convent at age 13; and I write songs and poems from my soul and heart, but I have to rewrite them to turn them into lyrics; and I put music to my songs using my 12-string acoustic guitar (I also have an electric 12-string guitar); I used to sing in the youth guitar group at my Roman Catholic Church when I was 14-16, then I went into nondenominational churches while in the U.S. Air Force and played and sang for Singles Sunday School and AWACS Christian Fellowship in 1987.

Hello. I'm new here. I just have to clarify one thing. I love to write songs and worship the Lord. But I haven't lead (or co-lead) praise and worship for over 20 years. I've got a lot of songs that I still need to put music to. You might be able to notice that from a few of my uploaded songs.
