SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a nearing 60 retiree who began playing acoustic guitar about 2 years ago. Playing chords only at this time (no lead). Seeking other musicians for frequent (ideally weekly) jam sessions. Limited interest in gigs, beyond very low key situations (private parties, playing for friends, etc.) Would also like to play for seniors in nursing home setting. I am available most days of the week, and days or evenings fine with me.

Influences

Pretty varied, but favorite bands are Grateful Dead (and derivatives), Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash. Like acoustic music, as well as electric. Like blues, bluegrass, Irish traditional, folk, Americana. The list of what I don't like is much shorter: liked heavy metal up to Zep and Black Sabbath, but not much beyond that. Hip-hop/ rap not my thing.
