ABOUT

58 year old male. Happily married for 30 years with one son who is now on his own in Cleveland as a mechanical engineer (I am a Carnegie Mellon graduate mechanical engineer). Basement Player for many many many years. Only played with one person (drummer) for a few years (JRR) and it seems were playing again. Rhythm guitar player here. I sing to some of my songs but I like to have the words in front of me (I would call myself Ray and the musicstands ,lol), but I really don't want to sing that much, just play the guitar. Looking to meet a singer and others, then go from there. Semi-retired and fun. Just have been waiting and strumming til the right moment, which hopefully is now. Never gigged. So its gonna be exciting for me. Todays date 9/24/19.
