In my late teens/early twenties music was the main 'thing' in life, being in a North East club circuit band professionally and semi-professionally, but I foolishly let it all slip away - what with marriage, mortgage and divorce and booze, - red wine mostly.
Developed high blood pressure 'cos of the booze and had to knock it on the head. Soon as I'd cut the booze down, a passion for making music came back, bought an acoustic this time - Martin-OMC15E - and started getting back into it. Discovered DADGAD, started writing tunes again and collaborated for a while with 2 Great vocalists - Laura Anya and Michelle Gunton.
Then through choice and circumstance, managed to rustle up enough dosh to subsist on for a couple of years so I could compose music full time. In 2009 I started work on my first album 'Renaissance' - 12 self-penned electro-acoustic guitar instrumentals, and released it December 2011.
There's track previews on my Bandmix profile and some full versions on website http://www.chrismooreacoustic.com and download links to Amazon/iTunes.
Working on a piano album at the moment, and when it's finished, around July hopefully, I'll probably start playing the geetar tracks at open acoustic nights. Got to get it out there
So, after all these years - I'm in my late 50's now - I'm back on geetar, with a passion.
Never too flippin late - that's what I say ...and don't give up
