ABOUT

TOP INTERESTS:
Collaborate with other guitarists, bassists, drummers, vocalists, and/or producers. Work with songwriter to help develop and produce some original music. I am also open to casual jamming. I am equally happy playing guitar, bass, drums, and/or producing a project. I am not stuck on one idea or goal. I'm looking for musicians for collaboration.

MY SET UP:
I have a recording/rehearsal studio with a drum set in a drum booth mic'd for recording, headphone monitoring for volume controlled rehearsal/jams, as well as guitar and bass amps ready to go. So, you can show up with your guitar/bass and fingers and that would be enough in most cases.

ABOUT ME
I have been in a lot of bands, recording projects, and jams. I have a lot of experience with project management and production. I'm a very collaborative person with a positive attitude: accepting, open-minded, humanistic, multicultural, positive, engaging, communicative. Not interested in connecting with haters. complainers, or people with substance abuse problems.

SAMPLES
Check my stuff out and reach me, if you are a googlizer of camps and clouds and books, while keeping in mind that much of what I have recorded does not represent my ability to play more straight-forward styles:

NOT INTERESTED / NO THANKS
Though I listen to most of the following when the mood strikes, I'm not looking to form a death metal, country, screamo, or hip hop band. Sacramento has plenty of options for that already. Jam-wise and project-wise I want to do something more roots based or in another genre.
