I'm an intermediate Bass Player, with gigging & stage experience! I read bass tab and I know my notes. I play finger style bass. I'm not a slapper and popper, or a pick player. I play in the pocket and hold down the bottom end. I've been in some really good bands in in California and some really crappy bands also. I live in Crossett, Arkansas now. I'm working on meeting other musicians, so thatI can put another good band together and start giving again.

- Bass Guitar:
I mainly play my white Gibson Thunderbird bass, my 1962, along with my 1975 Fender Jazz basses, my active real ESP E II bass that's made in Japan and my Hofner 500/1 bass. As for heads and cabs that I use? I use an Ampeg BA 500 combo amp, along with a Peavy Black Widow 210 cab that gives me five hundred watts of power. I also use a 400 watt SWR Headlite head, with two 210 GK cabs. All of my heads, have tube pre-amps, so that I get that nice fat, rich warm tone, along with XLR outs.

The Stake : as done by Snakesfield
The Stake : as done by Snakesfield Year: 2011 Genre: Rock
These songs were done a while back, with a great band that I put together. But, there was too much drama being going on, caused by the singers little brother. Trying to take over my position, as the bass player, in a band that I created. Well, after I left. The band fell apart. Due to the fact, that they could not book any Giggs. I was doing all the foot work. The singer was very talented, but a nightmare to work with, lazy and would created problems, while on stage, with the management of the venue and we were getting paid a flat rate. Also his little brother was a major, pain in the butt. So, I left the drama behind and I moved away, to take care of my elderly parents. Plus, to work on improving my own skills, at becoming a better bass player.

This was done by the band Snakesfield, also. I rearranged The Beatles version of Come Together and added a harder edge to it. The song came out really good, I thought.
