ABOUT

***ABOUT ME (SCOTT SHAMBLIN)***
(I just moved to Granbury, Texas)

F I R S T ----> Don't judge me by the genre(s) of music you hear on my profile. That just examples good dynamics and musicianship. I will post some New Texas Outlaw Country eventually.

I like and want to play Texas Outlaw Country. I do not care for POP COUNTRY, but some traditional never hurt anyone. My favorite musicians to play with is acoustic guitars with emphasis on vocal delivery and harmonies.

I play all genre's, however, my favorite is NEW Texas Outlaw Country, especially original. Yeah, I like Willie, Waylon, Ray Wylie, Jerry Jeff and all those cats, but that's old Texas Outlaw Country.

If you're actively writing songs and need good ideas, collaboration, harmonies, nice chords, please consider me.

I *prefer* original music, but will play covers in most genres. I love the blues, love Americana and am crazy about New Texas Outlaw Country-Rock or Red-Dirt Americana type songs.

I'm soulful, have played by ear since age 5 and entertained my first live audience in Plainview, Texas when I was 12 years old. I am now 60 years old and music is a hobby for me, HOWEVER, I consider myself professional, been around the block, been on big or small stages many times and I can do 2nd or 3rd part harmonies. I prefer playing with someone who considers harmonies important. At least sometimes or often.

I'm not looking for a full-time gig (been there dun that) and I have a pretty committed daytime job. Nope, I just want good times with good players, meet new friends, and play with a skilled and seasoned musician(s). I was born and raised in Texas and just returned home after being gone for 31 years.

Peace, love and good music!

Thank you,

Scott Shamblin
