4 Strings Dave


Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Other.


30+ years of playing bass with a fairly solid level of music theory background. Always trying to learn new things and grow as a bassist and musician.

Currently seeking musicians or a band who would be into writing original music. I'll rehash some covers when the need is there, but vastly prefer uncharted territory. I really like just about anything but hardcore rap and the harsher metal stuff. Instead of picking a genre, why can't we explore a bunch of different ones? I'd love to do try a jam band sort of thing out.

I'm most free on the weekends for rehearsals. I can manage an occasional weeknight, but unless it's a gig, its tough for me to make work. As far as playing out goes, I'm equally fine playing with other musicians just for ourselves as I am playing out to a crowd. I've no delusions of grandeur or hitting it big. I just love listening to music, and love playing it even more.

Drug and drama free. Easy to get along with. Reliable.
