Default Waddling In...

Hello, all. I'm a self-taught music student from Colorado. You can call me Waddles or Rob. Whatever trips your trolley.

I started my music education about a year or so ago. I'd taken choir in high school, but still can't carry a tune in a bucket on a forklift. I can, however, now read sheet music, and I'm familiar enough with music terminology that I've started composing some stuff in MuseScore.

My main interest is in piano. Ask me to find middle C, and I can do it. From there I can work out where the rest of the keys are. Ask me to play you a C Major chord, and I can do that (along with A Maj, B Maj, etc.). I won't promise I'll play it particularly well, but I know which keys to press, so...yay?

Anywho, I'm looking forward to seeing what I can learn here, and diving into music a little deeper than I have before. My primary passion is in storytelling as an aspiring novelist, so music is largely an extension of that for me.

Edited to Add:

If someone could point me to where I can add a signature to my posts, I'd appreciate it. I don't know why, but I can't seem to find a place to modify my signature.

The best choir kids are usually ex-choir kids.

Especially if they're now sophomores smoking a joint behind the school talking about Velvet Underground.

Musically, I prefer Classical, Baroque, and some of the modern instrumental stuff. I can find something in any genre I'll appreciate, and I can recognize talent even if I don't care for a particular sound.

I do enjoy Blue October for their lyrical content and moodiness in their music, but I also grew up on church hymns and Oldies, so I like to go back to my roots with Henry Francis Lyte or Frankie Valli.

Thanks. There must be a minimum post requirement, because according to the pictures 66Sexy posted, I don't have a signature link where there should be one. Thanks for the guide, though, 66Sexy.

I'm far beyond being a sophomore, and only touched weed once. As for Velvet Underground, they're not my particular taste, though as I said before, I can recognize their talent.

I don't know that I was ever a "choir kid," despite being in choir. I passed high school by the skin of my teeth, and choir was an "easy credit" to basically make sure I got out of high school with the rest of my class.

I do remember an assembly when I was in third grade or so, where they highlighted the benefits of music and "recruited" people for band. I was interested in piano then, but because of my learning disability (an executive function disorder related to ADD or ADHD), the band teacher said, "You may just not be a musical person."

That was one of several moments in my life where a bad teacher influenced the course of my life, and I didn't fight against it because of my ignorance.

Your band teacher was probably a useless **** who liked reading sheet music but had no talent himself. Otherwise he wouldn't have been a high school band teacher. How the **** do you even become a band teacher? You must be a hella boring music fan to get into that racket.

I'm a fan of Baroque music as well. Particularly Vivaldi and Corelli. Do you like classical metal at all? Stuff like Yngwie Malmsteen:
