ABOUT

Longtime bassist, but never found a band or other musicians to play with consistently - wanting to connect with bands/drummers/guitarists/pianists/etc. to play/enjoy, would be fun to gig some when C-19 is not crazy. Happy to lay down a good solid bass line and hold the bottom. I can play to chord charts/progressions and know keys, scales, general theory,12-bar blues, etc. to converse. Newer to guitar (2+ years) but can lay down solid rhythm and simple riffs no problem. Keyboards I dabble for MIDI primarily. Happy to back up gigging musicians who need some bass support. Song lists in my pictures of things I can come ready-to-play. My name is pretty unique - you can probably find me on LinkedIn alongside my day job resume there - also add an underscore between my first_last and add and you found me there.
