I've played violin for over 25 years. I have been trained classically (Bachelors in Music Education), but I prefer to play jazz/rock/blues. I have an acoustic 4 string with a pickup and an electric 6 string built by Dave Burham (dbcv [dot] com).

I'm a beginner on electric bass and am interested in joining a band. I currently play a Dingwall NG-2. I like to play Paramore and classic rock, but am open to learning other styles.

If you'd like to jam or something, let me know: Bluegillmaster at hot m ail dot com.
