All round Musician

Luis del Valle "Luis"
The list author says: "I have always believed that becoming a multi-instrumentalist was key to becoming a well rounded Musician. When I researched the modern/contemporary era of musicians/songwriters I found that this hypothesis was correct; John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Frank Zappa, Prince, Mike Oldfield, Brian Jones, Stevie Wonder, John Paul Jones, and many more. The more I researched, the more I became fascinated, and finally threw myself into learning other instruments. Being a guitar player my first task was to learn the piano; this then continued onto the bass, drums, synth programming, and learning composition and eventually how to use computers to compose music. It's been an interesting journey of about 2 years, but well worth it; apart from being my own band, I am able to collaborate and function better within a band evironment; in my current band I am the singer, and also play guitar/keyboards, however I have at my disposal a whole new world of music opportunities."
