Total time in music, 40 years. I began playing music when I was 9 years old. My first instrument was the trumpet and I played several wind instruments over the next several years. I picked up the bass when I was 12 and continued in the high school concert band playing Baritone and Tuba. Bass is just a natural fit for me.
I have a wide musical taste and I am capable of playing many different styles with practice but my heart is with blues, Motown/R&B, most 70's, some 80's and various classic/southern rock and classic country and Acoustic based music.
Attached to my profile are several audio and video files that have me performing on them. This is a small sample of my capabilities and with practice can learn about anything.
I am NOT a premier member of Bandmix and I am unable to send messages to you but I can respond to messages you send to me. You can contact me at: mncmcncy a h 0 0 .c 0 m.
