Me and My Music

My name is Kirsten, I'm 18 years old and I live in New England. There isn't much to do around here so I like to sit in my room and play the "git-fiddle". I'm not very good but hey, I try. In addition to playing the guitar I also like to play the piano and I'm really bad at that. Partially because I rarely get access to a piano. Below I've listed some of my favorite artists and albums. So if you share any interests (or even if you don't) e-mail me, I'd love to chat.

My Favorite Links

This page has every Ani DiFranco song all tabbed out, even by tuning. I visit this page often because I like to increasingly frustrate myself by trying to play like Ani DiFranco. Not that the songs are particularly hard or anything, just that I suck. Since I'm a huge Tori Amos fan I visit The Dent all the time for all things Tori. If your a Tori Amos fan you probably already knew about The Dent, but just in case.

I also like to read and I purchase most of my books through Amazon. If your lookin' for something good to read I recommend anything by Neil Gaiman, especially the Sandman comic book series.
