Finally pulled the plug on a project that never took off the ground. Just couldn't find a guitarist that was versatile enough to complete the band. :(
I'm anxious to join or start up another project though!
I have no interest in playing covers. ( Already in a coverband for sh!ts 'n giggles with some great guys...) And I don't want to be in a "copy-cat" original band either. Sounding like an already established band isn't something I'd be satisfied with.
I would really like to collaborate with fellow musicians that know their theory and are interested in doing something innovative that doesn't sound like a bunch of noise. That's definitely something easier said than done! But that's my goal as a musician.
I have a very nice synth/effects/midi setup and I'd really love to get into something that blends traditional sounds with heavy electronic sounds.
The songs posted on this page are from three different past projects. They do not represent a direction I'd like to go in. Simply just songs under my belt... Not my "fanciest" playing either.
I do have more tracks with more elaborate bass lines. And I'll be happy to send you some if requested. I just didn't want to project myself as too busy of a bass player.
If anyone is out there with the same aspirations, please feel free to contact me!
