SEEKINGBand to Join.
I've been playing for 25+ years on bass. Played all sorts of stuff from old school rock, southern rock, R&B, funk, modern rock. Probably been in 10 or so bands over the years that have played out and half a dozen other projects that weren't as serious or just didn't pan out.
I definitely still like gigging but the days of playing out 6+ times a month are over since I have other commitments so I'd prefer once a month or so..
I have a pretty straight ahead rock style and not one of those slap, pop, bippity-bop players. I mainly play with my fingers but use a pick now and then depending on the song.
I'm in a band called Rock Landing s://./pg/FansRock/videos/ [headphones help immensely to hear the bass] We don't gig a lot and everyone has a side project so I'm looking for another project as well to help fill in the musical gaps. I'm looking for no stress, easy going, good musicians, no chaos but a band that does have some gigs. I'm not a fan of perpetual practices but understand that they are needed for gigs.
Playing out is one of the only reason I do this since it's exciting and unpredictable. I can't do a "garage band only" thing. Nothing wrong with that at all, just not where my heads at currently.
I have a lot of respect for the blues and I can play it - but playing in a "blues" band isn't something I want to do.
That's pretty much it. I just want to make sure that everyone has fun.

A lot of 70's stuff since that decade had so many great and diverse songs. I still love the 90's music too since that was a new generation of music writing. Some new stuff is great too. I like different music based on my mood.
For specific bass players who come to mind as to I admire or think they're special in no specific order; John Paul Jones, Paul McCartney, James Jamerson, Ronnie Lane (The Faces) Geddy Lee, Tom Hamilton, John Entwistle, Robert De Leo (STP), Les Claypool, Flea, Sting, Geezer Butler, Phil Lesh - I'm sure there are others...
With the band I'm in we've lately been playing Allman Brothers Skynyrd, Thin Lizzy, Molley Hatchet, Skynyrd, Stones, SRV, Arc Angels, zztop, and other 70s greatness tunes.
I've played in bands fronted by women, blues bands, and my favorite of being in a rock band.
