ABOUT

I figured I'd try this bandmix thing out. This is a free acount so I can't communicate with you direct. Contact me at Gerard.black at mac dot comm

I've only moved to playing bass for a few years, I love bass and I'm not too shabby at it.
I'd llike to meet more people in my area to jam, collaborate and gig.
I've been playing music since I was a teenager. Mostly guitar. I played in a few garage bands, jam bands and with friends. I got away from playing for several years while having a career. Guitar was out of site and out of mind. I decided a few years back to leave the guitar out within reach and started playing all the time. I play with with friends every chance I get but they aren't always able to play as much as I would like so I'm looking for more opportunities to play. I moved to bass because I like the low end and I like the counter melody.

'm a quick study I do pretty well improvising and can jump right in and play even if I don't know the song. I like a challenge. I'm mellow easy going. No baggage. My main goal is to get better and have fun playing music.

I'm not a pro musician and I'm not looking for a job playing music in a cover band however if something clicks who knows. I like experimenting playing with new music and love originals.

I just enjoy making music. Especially with other people.
