Looking for an interesting project, maybe a cover band, tribute band, or originals.
I regularly play keyboards and bass at various open mics as part of the backing band, and also singing covers and originals. I have played a few paying gigs, but I do this for fun, not a hired gun right now.

You know those people that say they are just about into anything, then you find out they don't like a certain genre you like. I don't want to be like that. I don't like all kinds of music, but I like a wide variety of musical textures and landscapes. I mainly am interested in conventional music as in western traditional chords, melody, drums, so that excludes non-melodic music and anything where the emphasis is not on music composition. So that means I'm not much into Punk or Rap but some Punk and Rap is melodic I suppose but I probably will not be into that. I also am getting bored with three chords, I'm not into today's Country but I do love some of the classic country.
What I particularly like is just about anything called 'Rock'n'Roll' from the 50's to the 80's and all the Post-Psychedelic sub genres especially Prog Rock, and Americana, Motown, 60's and 70's R&B (I don't play slap bass). I'm not into Funk that much because there are not much chord changes in some of that.

When it is
When it isiPad recording done strictly with the iPad Mini touch interface no external keyboards. That trend is fading out as I get into using an external keyboard which gives better control. It is nice to slide up and down like that on the iPad touch interface.
Lulliby in F (Sinking)
Lulliby in F (Sinking)Original idea of doing something simple, and easy to play but something out of this world.
Chillfare (GyroCool)I'm trying to open a song with just a two note melody then develop it with a simple three chord progression. I want to suggest something far more sophisticated in the process using improvisation and technology. This is just a hint at it.
Beam Scotty Up 2
Beam Scotty Up 2iPad Garage Band project that I'm still not done with but I wanted to hear it on SoundCloud. This time I'm using an external keybaord with good results, but I miss those crazy solos on my earlier tracks.
Three SyllablesUsing the keyboard instead of the iPad. Trying to improve on the original Three Syllables idea.
Aye TamborAnother iPad only experience. Sounds very easy listening at first, but takes some twists and turns while still keeping it easy.
