Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

For the best effect, please be sure and watch, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this automated series of my homemade amateur video recordings that I created of ME (!), performing my original compositions, both words and music, while accompanying myself by strumming simple chords on my guitar.

As you listen to my songs that I composed, please ignore the lyrics and pay closer attention to the melodies.

Now, just imagine, if you will, those melodies as "elevator music", being performed by a professional symphony orchestra.

Man, oh man, but wouldn't that be sooooo super nifty cool, to be shopping for goodies at my local Wal-Mart store, and hear one of MY songs, that I wrote, being played as background music over the store's intercom?

That is a goal that I'd like to aim for, but of course, I don't have a clue about how to do it, for I'm only an unknown amateur, with no formal music education, and have no contacts in the music industry.

Furthermore, I am currently somewhat restricted by failing health, and reside in the Armed Forces Retirement Home, where I seldom leave my room.

Before a symphony orchestra could play my music, someone would have to transcribe a score onto manuscript paper, for the music is only in my mind, as I perform from memory and "by ear", being unable to read or write music, nor even knowing the names of the chords that I'm strumming on my guitar.

Maybe somebody reading this could possibly suggest something, or maybe steer me in the right direction, so that eventually, this secret ambition could actually come to fruition.

Thank you.

1800 Beach Drive, Unit 311
