Authentic, old-school, blues bassist: country blues, jump-blues, swing-blues, old anything blues. My unusual, one-of-a-kind bass has that fat, bottom-line, belly-tone found in old blues recordings from the 1930's and 40's. It won't interfere with vocals or guitars; it is highly intuitive in that it can catch almost any musical fast-ball you can throw at it! It's also ideal for bluegrass. Been playing for over 40 years with a great variety of musicians and styles of music, but it always ends up with me gravitating to the blues. "There’s lots of music, I listen to, rock, jazz and pop, much to choose. There’s folk, and hip-hop,...but only one will do. When I’ve heard it all,...I go back to the blues!" (From one of my original blues tunes) I want to be in a working roots-blues band, or to start one. The musicians have to be experienced and fantastic. I'm looking to re-create that old, authentic blues sound, you know, like Little Walter, or early Muddy Waters, old Buddy Guy, or John Lee Hooker and Son House etc. The drummer I have in mind would have it easy as the smaller the drum-kit, the better----even just a snare, hi-hat and one ride-symbol would be ideal. Drums and bass should and will stay in the background where they belong, just like they are in those early blues recordings.
