David Lamkins picked up his first guitar a long time ago. As best he can recall the year was 1967: the year of the Summer of Love. Four decades later David has conjured up an amalgam of folk, rock and jazz solo guitar music for the occasional intimate Portland audience.

2008 Musical Goals

As I've done for a number of years (the most recent of which I've documented in these pages), it's time for me to think about what I'd like to accomplish with my music in the year ahead.

My primary goal for 2008 is to start recording again. The last time I recorded anything of my own was in 2003. I'd like to document the progress I've made since then and create an objective record of my playing for future reference. Secondarily it'd be nice if some of my recorded output were to be suitable for public consumption. We'll see what happens...

I intend to continue my emphasis on producing music rather than acquiring gear. In fact, I have a bit more stuff that I'd like to sell because I don't use it enough.

Finally, I'll make an effort to continue performing in public. I'll attempt to shift the balance more toward solo gigs rather than open mics.
