Sung in my first band at the age of 16 (1995) Obviously pre-digital takeover. We cut a four track demo. Had 1 master CD and copied cassettes from the master. We received national radio airplay on FM- 104.7, 106.3, 2xx, and Triple J. Often at karaoke lol. As a 16 year old; Discovering I had a voice, I chose to learn the guitar so I could have some accompaniment. I was more interested in my vocal, so I say I'm a "lazy" guitarist- meaning I never put to much into learning my scales or reading traditional sheet music. The reason is two-fold. Firstly, I was only learning strumming and chord patterns- just so I had something to sing along too. Secondly I learnt guitar tabliture, which just enhanced by ability and gave me another avenue to learn correctly, rather than my usual method of learning a song by ear.
