Raine Carosin's Soundcloud Profile
Music is my second love, my first being art (painting, etc.) I have a few paintings on the net at SouthAfricanArtists.com http://southafricanartists.com/.
You're welcome to browse my name, Raine Carosin, for all my goodies on the net. Otherwise, with regards to music, I had guitar lessons for a year (12 years old), and then I just learned from other musicians throughout my meanderings. Of course, I didn't apply myself 100%, and now that I am middle-aged, I have procured as much material for learning as possible, but find that with the beginnings of arthiritis and a taste of senility, (and that my youthful stamina is abating) I can only learn slowly. However, there are backtracks and karaoke nowadays that do the trick when I am unable to accompany myself with the guitar. I have a keyboard (Korg is50) and a few computer programmes, which I am also learning to use, but slowly. I wanted to be famous but failed miserably due to unforseen circumstances. (I suffered a head injury in 1981/2 and was diagnosed as schizophrenic in 1985).
Now, with the internet and sites like these - although I must say, I haven't come across another wonderful site like this ever! - my dreams have come true to a degree that I am more than satisfied with. I'm too wheezy to cavort on a stage, so working from home suits me down to the ground. It's just me and the machines and the guitars and the trees, and the cat. (UPDATE: The cat has moved to her new home.) Hubby watches with one ear. This, for me, is like the Woodstock for the net. I hope that my old songs will become modernised so that all those hours I spent writing and remembering them won't be lost forever. You're welcome to contact me if you wish to collaborate. I have tons of poetry just waiting for melodies, and I can spin a poetic yarn within a day on a chosen subject, as long as I am able to ask questions.
Enough about me. And you...? You don't know how happy I get everytime I check my statistics and realise that I have played for another person somewhere in the world, and receive your welcome comments. Even though the stage is all in my head, it's still a great feeling. Thank You. (I haven't given up my day job...) And, also remember, that my music is written for every cell of creation, so boogie, woogie and play on... it is after all, the food of Love... use it, blues it, muse it...
PS If you get "muted" by me, I can assure you that it is just because I don't know how to control my mouse when it is dirty, or, I've become intimidated by the machines, again...!!!!! Remember, I'm still new to all this... and, because there are so many different languages and we don't see each other's gestures and faces, there may be misunderstandings, but - no fear - i sometimes put my foot in it, but i mean well... just emotional and moody at times... (4th Dec 2010: Dear Jacques Buvat has uploaded my first collaboration of "I Wanna Take You Forgranted" - I'm so excited I can't find the Earth beneath my feet!!!!)
