SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

My music interests: rock, blues, jazz, and just about anything else except rap/hip-hop. I am a classically trained musician. Currently, and for the past 15 years I have collaborated and studied electric bass theory with Chicagoland bassist, EADG4 author, and Mel Bay columnist, John Falstrom. In high school, I spent time jamming with blues legends Sleep John Estes and Hammie Nixon. I can be contacted through Bandmix or at deg9995 at gee male dot kom.

Excluding drums, all tracks for If I Fell, Pluk It, and Bassed Out are played on bass guitars.

If I Fell is recorded on 5 tracks. Melody and chords played on a Danelectro Longhorn, bass line played on a Fender Jazz Bass, and percussion played on an Alesis SR-16.

"Pluk It" is recorded on 3 tracks. Track 1 percussion. Track 2 is the main bass line played on a Fender Jazz bass through an MXR phase 90. Track 3 is the solo played on a Danelectro Longhorn through a Sansamp Bass Driver with the drive maxed out.

"Bassed Out" is recorded on 5 tracks which include the bass line, the same bass line doubled up an octave, strummed I, IV, & V7 chords, and the solo. All played on a Fender American Precision Bass.

All Southbound 61 tracks were recorded directly off of the board at Real Time Sports in Geneva, IL.
