ABOUT

Long time guitar player looking to jam with experienced musicians, no requirements from me other than you like what you do, and are good at it. I play a melodic, harmonic, rhythmic style of Bass ; getting really good at it, I also have played lead and rhythm guitar and keyboards. If you have original music, it is welcome; classical music a plus; Jazz, Classic Rock and Blues a bonus and the fusion of all is golden. I have a list of many covers in mind for a project along with some original music; the ultimate future goal for me is recording contracts; entertaining live could work also for me in the right venue. I have played on and off for 45 years, willing to learn and try new tricks; learning some every day, in the right environment I believe I can compliment any other musician. I practice technique every day of the week and some times more times in a day than one; I am quite willing to put in the work required to produce a polished sound. All I am looking for are like minded musicians for a possible music project, everyone to have artistic input; no pressure and no great expectations, you take out what you put in; I would settle for some good jam sessions. Abraham Lincoln once said," whatever you are, be a good one".
