Basically I would like to find a few musicians that would enjoy getting together to write our own music. If we have the opportunity to play out then we should take it. If not, life in a recording atmosphere is not so bad. I would not mind covering a few tunes, but I'm thinking high energy, big sound power trio type stuff. I'm in my late 50's & bring some experience to the table. I spent 15 years raising my 2 daughters & now that they're grown up & getting on with their lives I would like to get back into playing again. I picked up my Bass a few years ago & have had many days that I have played for 3-4 hours going over scales & riffs & creating loops. I purchased recording equipment. I was part of a 3 piece Fusion band that had a gigantic sound. It fizzled & I'm fine with that. What an experience. I like to write along the lines of Jeff Beck, Tool, Crimson etc. I have a few finished tunes & lots of stuff that needs finishing. I also have some loops that can be fitted to something. I have some stuff on a cloud that can be accessed with a link if you would like to hear a few things. I do not have rehearsal space so that will be a small hurdle. I am responsible, do my homework, commit, have transportation & love to play. I tend to work out details in the music I write rather than ad lib a tune. I leave that for the guitarist. If it's a fat bottom end you're looking for, I come in pretty handy for that.
The most influential musicians that have helped carve my style are; Stanley Clarke, Victor, Ralph Armstrong, Dave LaRue, John Patitucci, Geezer, Jaco, Jeff Berlin. You know there are actually several other Bass players and other musicians that have helped to form my style of playing, but when asked who they are we usually can only think of a fraction of them. There might be a song by a certain band with a catchy Bass line & you have no idea who the Bass player is, but you copy the line & you're influenced by Mr. Somebody. I also like to play some contemporary Christian music. Quite a bit of the newer stuff is very catchy & very well written.

Nothing too special about it except it looks really cool because of the aluminum neck. pups sound good for being passive & it has a center tap switch. Not too much tone shaping.
