ABOUT

I practice on my own but I want to practice with others. I learn simple riffs and tunes from TAB music which I feel I have a chance to learn. Songsterr is my main source. I've contributed TABS to Songsterr, for the love of the music, under my profile name BlackToppStrato. Drop me a message. I'd enjoy practicing a simple tune with you.

I work on electrics doing set ups. Copper sheet shielding of internal routed cavities. Aluminum sheet shielding of pickguards. Changing out pick ups and pots etc. adding Treble Bleed-Bypass Circuits with Parallel Resistors to volume controls and new oil filled Tone Capacitors.

I can sing but I have great difficulty playing and singing at the same time. I've played solo at Just Moore bar in Gautier (I got stage fright some and the owner said I needed to play with the Bikers). It was for fun and free. I want to play guitar with others in practice and public.

My email's otimothy 11 at yah oo dot com My cell is 228 209 8047 Please, let me know who you are and that you're from BandMix and what you might be intersested in (I prefer whats app text, regular text or leave voice-mail message).

I got back to MS last year on Jan 9th, 2017 (Confederate Independence Day), from 2 years in MT. 1 in IA. My home was robbed before arriving. A guitar and a couple amps and much more were taken. It may have been a Squier Strat but I had completely gutted it with new Texas Strat Special Pups, new pots wiring, conversion to a 3 way switch . . . new pearloid pickguard . . .

Times were once again hard here because I came back home and had no job. Things are back to being better again.

I'd be available to practice with you or to help you with upgrades on your electric guitars on my days and nights off of work which varies from up to 2-3 days/nights a week. Week days and alternate weekends.

EQUIPMENT

Fender MIM Strats with upgraded electronics and Squier Vintage Modified Short Scale bass with upgraded electronics.

JEEZ this Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Short Scale Bass feels so much better and balanced than my Made in Mexico Precision Bass. Say what you will. I LOVE THIS SQUIER BASS.

I've upgraded my Strats by copper sheeting the routed cavities, replacing the electronics and PUPS including the Squier Bass. Fender 150w bass amp, 100w guitar amp & 25w pignose practice amp, Roland Cubes guitar and bass practice amps.

I respect other peoples equipment. You can count on it. I know how hard it is to make a dollar.

For the love of the music.
