SEEKINGVocalist, Lead Guitar.
Enjoy writing, recording, producing music and a few of live performances per year. A lifetime of playing keys. I have done over 100 professional gigs playing in working bands. Classically trained on piano and organ, but rock is my primary style.
Can handle some bass and electric guitar, but no vocals. Can read sheets.
Interested in a new project: online or local collaboration writing and recording for Internet publication. May also consider being an extra for occasional gigs and sessions if you are looking to add keys to an existing ensemble, but not looking to join a band.

Won't Get Better Than This
Won't Get Better Than ThisGuitar is Schecter C-1+ w/mod - Seymour Duncan '59 humbucker in neck; JB in bridge. Don't matter what you do or how you do it. Don't matter who you're with or where you are. It won't get better than this. It just won't get better than this.
Drive@1:54 - Musically stopped at a traffic light with signal on, then accelerate and drive Walk away, walk away to the street. Find the keys, unlock the door empty car, empty seat. Sat alone, sat awhile before I drive, before I cry. Engine idles, depress the brake, signal clicks. ...and then I drive. The fog and beach remind me empty feeling, empty seat. Gonna say, I'm sorry gonna head back soon gonna buy the stone gonna rent the room gonna play with fate gonna be there soon. after I drive, after the drive.
Bad KarmaHere's my stab at some lyrics. Intro: until bar 12 Verse 1 starts with do’s Another day another dollar, and no change. Been here before don’t like the question or no anticipation of a different answer. Instrumental Bridge: 8 bars from 21-28 next verse starts with piano Solving problems so what, its what you want and I think its better now but it goes on you watch it happen and don't even look away Then I think you just don’t get it how many more times will it take. Chorus: starts at bar 40 It goes on it goes on and on it's me, it's you when it comes around don’t let it come back on and on again -- at bar 48 Bad karma... bad, bad karma again and again and again bad karma... bad bad karma it's in you, it's in me -- at bar 56 What goes around comes around our fate, future, history before and again -- at bar 60 It comes around don’t want it to come around going to get back to you -- ending Bad karma... bad, bad karma what goes around, comes around (repeat for the rest of the song)
Brain PoliceOriginal by Jeff Bechter (guitar & vocals) and Norm Vilmer (keys, bass & percussion) recorded in 1986 inspired by the brain police prank phone call recorded around the same time on a JVC cassette deck, overdub achieved by desoldering the erase head. Guitar is '70's Fender Strat played thru Fender amp of the same era. Keyboard is an '80's Akai AX-80 and a small Casio was used for bass and rhythm. Mic was a Realistic (Radio Shack) Super Cardioid Dynamic.
Spocks BrainInspired by the Star Trek Episode with the same name. The voice in the intro is from the TV show. Rhythm is Nord Lead 2x "dancing filters"; EP starts at 0:28, original jazz melody; variation on old Star Trek Theme on organ starts at 1:15; squishy synth at 1:39.
