ABOUT

Learned to play in my teen years into my early twenties with my first bass, a Fender Jazz that I bought a pawn shop for $100! Typical scenario, had kids so sold my gear. Around 2008 when the kids had grown I picked up the bass again.
I've played a lot of Surf and R&B instrumentals most of the last 10 years. An instrumental band would be great to play the local Racetracks, events and clubs here in the North Georgia mountains and surrounding areas.
Would like to make some money doing it too. Imagine that! Occasional charity is fine for a good cause.
Blues, Blues/Rock and Classic Rock. Not really into playing the usual top 40 stuff that everybody and his brother & sister plays. But still, I'm open minded. I like a lot of older top 40.
50s R&R band with some Old School Country & Western(there is a difference) would be very cool and popular here.

Influences

When I was a teenager in the 70s I was very much into Progressive Rock. I learned to play by studying Greg Lake, Chris Squire. Still love my musical hero James Dewar the original bassist for Robin Trower(though I can't sing like him).
I'm not into Progressive Rock now-a-days. Today I'm more into and listen to Blues bassists of all sorts. Big fan of John McVie when he was with Peter Green's Original Fleetwood Mac. Paul Butterfield Blues Band, love it!
AND DON'T FORGET JACK BRUCE AND CREAM!!

EQUIPMENT

I play a JazzMaster Bass that I built. Warmoth body, Fender Original 62' Jazz pickups. Precision neck, Hipshot tuners & bridge.
I play through a Fender Rumble 500 amp with two 15 inch Celestion speakers, 300 watts each which gives me the full 500 watts out of the amplifier. I built the cabinets directly from Celestion workshop specifications.
