Dear Taxi Community,
I joined Taxi last summer and since then read contributions in the Forum. But now I want to start with my comments and questions, because I believe that the exchange in the Forum is very helpful.
I am a swedish-german hobby musician and live with my wife in Frankfurt/Germany, have a daughter and a son and a granddaughter. I play and compose music since many decades – I am not so young any more – in different styles (Classical, Rock, Jazz) and different groups. My main instrument is the piano, but I learned and practise guitar, organ, bass and trumpet as well. My favorate instrument is my hundred years old Steinway and my half as old Hammond.
I am not very good in recording and mixing, because I prefer to spend my free time playing music and practising instruments. That might be the weak spot of my submissions. Since I joinded Taxi I sent about 15 submissions and had one f owarding.
Another weak spot might be the lyrics as I am not an english native speaker (but this problem had Bjoern Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson as well – not that I want to compare with them). So I hope I get now and then some good hints and tips from somebody of you.
Anyway I am glad to be part oft he community.
All the best

Hello, Martin.
It's pretty much a globally-diverse community, here. Hopefully you will feel welcome and find a home for your musical creations through TAXI and its associations.

Welcome, Martin!

If you haven't already been perusing through, I'd recommend the FAQ listings. I've read through those multiple times now and seem to get something from them every time I read em.

Looking forward to hearing some of your music!

Hi Martin, I would suggest you watch some videos from "Mr. Taxi" himself. Here are examples:

Welcome to the group!

Thank you, Mike. Yes I watch most of the Taxi TV episodes. Usually not live, because they start at one o'clock in the morning in Central Europe.
