ABOUT

61 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). No more work as an engineer to pay the bills and raise a family. Basement Player for many many many years. Only played with one person (drummer), excellent drummer just not dependable. Rhythm guitar player here. I sing to many songs but I like and need to have the words in front of me. LOOKING TO MEET OTHERS, then go from there. Go for it. Semi-retired and very fun, smart and peaceful. Just have been waiting and strumming til the right moment, which hopefully is when this pandemic is over. Never gigged. So its gonna be exciting for me. Todays date 6/1/21.
