Hi, my name’s Kavalier Calm. I write songs and poems inspired by the things I see and people I meet on the internet. Ask, and I’ll write something just for you. Really. Don’t be shy; we'll have fun, I swear.
aortaloveyou whispered : I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your musical contributions to the world, they're calming me in a time of stress and comforting me through the insidious obstacles of life. Thank you again.
I like this. I picked the pseudonym Kavalier Calm because I want to be original (cavalier) and patient (calm) with the process. That my surname also stands for writing calming music is rad to me. Keep your head up, kid, and I’ll keep writing.
Anonymous whispered : How did you teach yourself to play guitar?
It’s a slow process. It took ten years of playing almost every day to get where I am now. I recommend learning to read tablature, and after you learn a few songs, you’ll see almost all music is based upon easily memorized patterns. And if you want to write songs, take a music theory course. My high school’s theory class was enough to get me started; now here I am, 200+ songs later.
