ABOUT

I'm looking for some good folks who love and play the Blues, to enjoy the Blues with me. (For further info on my background in music read my experience page). I have some good original material. I want to have some input on this project also, and expect folks to relax, have fun, discover, explore and share those hidden corners of the Blues. I want to guest some joints soon, even if we snap up a set of Hendrix covers and work them while we build our own tunes.
I just see a void of ol' Blues out there and thats a drag. Sharin is carin. I feel people will pick up on this thing.

We need for this four piece thing:

Guitarist: any pick hand/slide style,
Accoustic and electric. Single coil or humbuck. Things will fit if we work to make them fit.
Not looking for a pro or anything. Just a guitar player who got feel, and a good ear.

Bass:
4/4, 3/4 scale upright, accoustic or electric.

Skins:
Small, basic and simple set is just fine. Bass drum, snare, three tom, ride, a crash or two, and hi hat. Thats it! We want to keep a small footprint.

Read my influences page to get a vibe of where we are at.
