Synchronicity for me too! I'm part of the worship team at my church as a back up singer but recently I've been keen on learning how to play the drums. Once exams are over & when my friend isn't busy I'll start learning yay!
It's weird I used to be like you in the way that I wanted to do compositions on the computer but I've been more drawn to physical instruments at the moment. I think because for me I really like the traditional coming together as a group when creating music. It's like a social thing for me hehe.
Cool post Steve! Good luck on your musical endeavour
