SEEKINGBand to Join.
Special interest in instrumentals (like The Ventures). I won First Prize in Dallas Songwriters Assn Contest 2016 (for instrumentals). I enjoy accompanying vocals, play melody and lead guitar, accompaniment and rhythm guitar, acoustic-electric guitar, bass guitar (but not just bass) and occasional keyboard. I can read music. Hear my recordings on my website Insanitizers dot com. I'm experienced in recording, mixing, and mastering. My"Guitar Fun" CD won a national "Best Instrumental Rock Album" award. I am older but athletic with good stamina. In December 2017 the editor of NGD instrumental review magazine wrote that I am "today's Nokie Edwards." If you know what that means and it is of value to you, I look forward to hearing from you. No drugs. Email: conrad.swartz at y a h oo dot com
