ABOUT

my primary instrument is BASS guitar, I also play acoustic & electric guitar well enough to play rhythm parts and can cover vocal harmonies from bass/baritone thru tenor;
I prefer ORIGINAL MUSIC and do my fair share of writing, would enjoy meeting co-conspirators here as well!
I am beginning to embrace the idea of playing covers, and would probably jump at the chance to play some good, groove-heavy classic rock (Zep, Jimi, Bad Co, Aerosmith, etc)
