Who am I?
Hi! My name is David Dodsworth and I'm a "Music Maker".I use the name Dave Willaims for my music. I am based in Auckland North. I Play finger style Bluesy, Electric guitar, reflective, therapeutic, chill out Insrumental Music.
Genre: Instrumental-Blues-Guitar-Bluesy-Rock Guitar-British Blues-Jazz &Swing
Finger Picking Style-Guitar-Therapy.
I'm 65+ years old and have had careers in Electronic Design, Computer Aided Design & Consullting, and more recently as an active community member and owner(13 years) of a famouse Cafe, "The Puhoi Cottage TeaRooms", in the little historical village of Puhoi.
I have played Guitar since I was about 10 and notably it was in Puhoi that I composed my first Tune, "The Puhoi River Blues" which has its own story.
Since then and my retirement I have recorded some 40+ tunes
Okay, cool, but what's this all about?
Just over a year ago I started creating some music video's and posting them to my social media channels. I was pleasantly surprised by the feedback that I got.(2.7k Facebook Likes). It showed that people enjoyed watching and listening to my music and posed the question, being raised by the response I was getting. "How should I preserve my music for the future?" The more I thought about this, the more I thought about taking my music more seriously and publishing professionally 3 E.P's and an Album as a legacy, ensuring that My Music could be shared globally and is never lost. So that is now my life GOAL.
Awesome! How can I help?
Thank you for asking! Basically, I really want to see this succeed, and the quickest and easiest way to do that is to self-publish. By pledging to my project, not only will you help me realise this dream, you'll also get to be the first group of people to get MyMusic product; get a life time connection to my Udemy Guitar courses; and when funded, be a part of my special Private Facebook Fan page were you can follow the development of the this project and chat to others that have pledged me.
Post project Fan Page members will be the first to get all of my product offers.
So what is in it for me?
My undying thanks? A warm fuzzy feeling? The knowledge that you've made my dream come true?
Oh! You can listen to my first E.P now on spotify, and you can also get a first edition copy of my NEW album Chill and Relax! as one of my Rewards. If you want me to I'll even write a dedication of your choice and sign the inside cover (or leave it completely unblemished if you would prefer)!
