ABOUT

Bassist since 1971 while in college. Played piano and trumpet through Middle and High School.
Currently bass is main instrument, but keep up the acoustic guitar and some keyboard.
Confident playing following styles: Rock, R&B, Soul, Funk, Smooth Jazz, Blues and Pop.
Mostly interested in playing Contemporary Christian and Praise & Worship. Have been actively playing in Christian venues since 1988.
I can play by ear, read chord charts and lead sheets, can read music as well, (but not sight read). I am familiar with music theory at an intermediate level.
