ABOUT

If you have a band/group missing a bassist/rhythm, your rhythm has a hollow sound or is nonexistent, or the drummer really wants to sing for a couple songs, then I'm your guy. I listen to and play all kinds of contemporary music and have extensive experience performing funk/gospel. That said, I am used to learning songs in an hour or so and am looking for a (semi)committed rock/alt/funk group to jam and/or gig with.

About me: 25y/o he/him. Not Single. Vaxed. Learned on guitar (8 years), switched mainly to bass (6 years), and then fell in love with drums (3 years). Ex-Pentecostal bass player; three years every Sunday and often Wednesday, and if you know that kind of church music, you know it's busy licks. I have enough OG songs to write an album. Sadly, I no longer have drums, nor the space to host practice. I can't slap, but I'm learning. I normally play with a pick- if you think this is a cardinal sin, go outside. I have other experience in alt/indie, southern rock/country, and rock bands around the Athens/Atlanta area. Reach me via my "screenname at g(oogle) mail dot com" ;)

EQUIPMENT

My twin-amp setup allows a full guitar and bass sound simultaneously (or either separately), but the bass signal sounds better shifted up an octave rather than a guitar shifted down- that is the nature of my setup.
Bass Signal: Dry signal goes to tuner (also a mute)-> Distortion->Amp
Guitar Signal: Tuner Bypass-> Noise Suppressor (mute)-> EQ-> Octave^+LP filter-> Harmonizer-> Distortion-> Delay/Loop-> Amp

G-Amp: 10" Fender mustang I (nothing impressive, but can get access to a Fender pro if I really need it)
B-Amp: Fender Rumble 150W
