An experienced cover-band bassist and guitarist who plays about everything - rhythm, lead, slide, acoustic, 12-string, bass, and even a bit of mandolin and Irish whistle. My playing style for guitar seems to be a cross between Clapton and Santana. I also gigged playing bass for 20 years in the style of Led Zeppelin, Yes, and Rush.
I believe in hard work, doing musical homework at home, being ready at practice, practicing hard but keeping things light and communication open, and integrity at the gig. No drama, no drugs, no drunkenness. Team player.
The songs listed here are my originals. I performed all tracks (the drums were programmed), and recorded them in my home studio.
The videos listed were performed under the auspices of Rock Camp Experience (rockcampexperience), which is a fun organization that provides an opportunity for new players to come out of the bedroom/basement to perform in public, and older players to keep their hand in and play stuff they've always wanted to play, or perhaps try music styles they haven't tried before. A great group of folks.
If currently uncommitted to a band, I would be open to considering the right band opportunity. One practice a week and 2-4 giging nights a month would be ideal, usually within an hour's drive of the 494/694 loop, although I'm flexible for the right situations.
