Hey Sound Assassin,
Heck man, you aren’t crazy at all. Personally, my musical background started in 8 years of playing flute, and 2-3 years of military drumming, but like you I just love music. I’m in fact training to be in the health field, but I have tried dabbling in music engineering and I love it. I hope to collab with you some time; I’m sure we can make some awesome stuff.
