Started singing at age 6 and picked up guitar at age 16. Hit the street at age 17 and learned survival is hard work. While music took a back seat to real life you never really get it out of your blood, do you? I'm writing music in my head all day long. Used to be just words, but since I got serious again , the tunes, arrangements and voicing just comes to me like a flood that won't stop even if I wanted it too. I like to meet people who share my passion for music and see where it goes.
Music samples are coming, a little patience please.

Patty Smyth, Pink, Joan Jet, Elvis, Cougar, Steve Perry, Janice Joplin, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Mars, Toto, ROD STEWART, and of course my name sake - Dave Mason. Pretty much anything that is not foul or ugly. I can whip out a pretty mean version of Jeremy (Pearl Jam), but that's about the worst I want to do. I'm working on getting the voicing right for vintage Van Halen right now. I never knew Dave was so hard to do, but I don't quit and I don't give up when a thing is worth doing. I'd love to meet people who feel the same passion for music as I do. I know your out there. It's time to bring your ship into shore.
Members Of Band
Dave plays drums until someone comes along that is better at it.
I don't mind falling into manager/producer spot if we find the right people and someone can sing better than me.
All pieces are open.
I have a lot of business experience and a business plan if anyone is interested.
My personal motto: It's a lot more fun when you get a paycheck to do what you love.
I make it a thing to go out at least once a week to a karaoke bar, and I've learned that's the best place to meet for the first time if you are serious. Equipment: I've got amps and speakers. Fretless bass (4 string), Yamaha acoustic (6 string), Keyboard (Cassio student model), reel to reel, digital 8 track, and an old board, but I don't like it (no phantom power) maybe good as a drum mixer. Just bought a vocal mixer (T.C. Helicon VoiceLive Touch) that should take me anywhere I need to go (Queen anybody?), but I'd really like to meet someone smart enough (studio wise) to help figure out how to rock this thing right. I bought a 1978 Black Beauty (Nashville Factory) off the street (hope that guy didn't steal it). Good action. Straight neck, like new. Sounds great with a Marshall CODE 100. And now I have that full drum set I've dreamed of for years so I can get to work'n on my stage chops.
I think music is a lesson we are constantly learning so long as we have the will to produce the best sound possible and the desire to share what we have learned with others.
