I am David Guitard and I am a musician! I was on EI and had started playing my guitar! I had been a singer all my life. I remember singing on stage in front of the town of Jacquet River when I was only five years old. I had tried playing the guitar a couple of times and it did not stick. In BC though after picking it up again, I was hooked. I was playing it eight hours a day and did this for about a month and a half and started writing a couple of songs. I awoke in Victoria General Hospital after ten days in a coma. I had a traumatic head injury and was lucky to still be here! I was not the same person at all! I had to heal and let my brain remember, which took a long time to do. But I had my guitar, which my friend had gone to my home and gotten my guitar for me to have in the hospital!
After the injury, I began to play which is what I did, all day, every day and I had started writing music as well! My songs were about many different things, different than most because all I was doing was unique finger-picking. I had completed ten songs which I recorded myself on my computer and then made a CD.
I had started selling my CD’s and getting signatures from people. I started singing at local clubs, driving my musical producer around and singing wherever he had gigs. Recorded my CD in the professional studio he had in partnership with someone else!
I have written everything I have completed myself and continue to do so! I believe it would be quite a while before I won’t have something in me that want’s to come out! It has been quite an interesting life until now! I have been working extensively to be recognized as a professional musician that can sell music across Canada, the U.S., Europe, the UK. I Have produced a video for “Twin Towers” off my professional indie CD and continue to record the works that I finish! “Dream of Lightning” for instance, where I have, I believe eight different videos of the progression of how it became a completed song. I am currently working on a new song right now. I like to listen to Nick Flavel who I think is a great musician. CCR, The Eagles, Def Leppard, Guns and Roses, Metalica, U2, The Tragically Hip being my favorite band, Nickelback is a great band, Pearl Jam, Our Lady Peace, Matchbox Twenty, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Blue Rodeo, John Couger Mellancamp, Bob Dylan and there are so many more that I loved to listen.
