SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

56 yro male with goal of participating in a band that gigs 1 - 6x month (in central Ohio). My ideal band would have a strong vocalist and would use music (lead sheets or notes) to keep track of entrances, dynamics, etc. I'm open to multiple styles (classic rock, folk, blues, American, bluegrass, some country, some jazz), covers or originals. Strengths and weaknesses. Acknowledging that a good bassist could play circles around me with one hand tied behind their back, I think my relative strengths are a moderate knowledge of music theory, and being an organized, reliable, and personable band member. I think my weaknesses include an inability to reproduce bass lines like their cover version (even if I can play the line, I may not remember it exactly right), and I float on my rhythm at times. I am also not good at funk, R&B, or walking bass lines over uptempo jazz tunes.
