ABOUT

I reside near King of Prussia. I have a JamKazam hook-up to collaborate remotely if desired. I'm basically a advanced "string plucker" (guitar and bass) and evolving as a "key tickler". I'm looking for either a "string plucker" (guitar/bass) or a keyboardist. I program my workstation (Korg Triton Extreme) to bring whatever patches a piece of music requires (e.g.; piano, organ, strings, synth, guitar, bass, percussion) and also program the machine's arpeggiators to play through complex repeated patterns. I use external floor switches and the Korg's Expression Pedal to start/stop the different patterns as required to bring the song. For each song programmed, I produce an 8.5x11 "map" of the 88keys showing where the patches are programmed and also produce "keyboard tabs" alongside the song's lyrics. I have a complete studio and everything needed to play small and large venues. I am an accomplished Bass player, advanced guitarist, and intermediate keyboardist. I am comfortably retired and so I have time for this project. I also play bass with two other projects that are on hiatus due to COVID, one of which has a classic rock focus and is also looking for a keyboardist. The Korg samples that I have included below are rough recordings. I am an evolving keyboardist. I have some great bass lines to accompany and can also bring guitar. I just wanted to get something out there for examples of what I am programming. These recordings are circa 2020 and I will be updating soon.
