ABOUT

Play acoustic/electric improvisational music. Most genres. Excellent rhythm player most genres. Adequate on some lead vocals but shine on interesting vocal harmony, and clean (hear every note) solos. I like to re-work tunes and add great harmony and a long improv section. Lean toward jazzy stuff but am not a hardcore jazz guy. 4-5 long tunes per set kind of musician. Maybe find some grooves that pretty girls could dance to. More of a musicians musician than a pop player.
First would like to start jamming with a compatible well seasoned bassist, to see what we could put together.
Other scenarios:
guitar or bass as a part of a good jazz rhythm section
Duet: back-up female guitar or piano/vocalist acoustic style Guitar, mandolin, or bass( I did this for many years. small venues)
Progressive bluegrass guitar or bass
