A quasi bassist is available

Post by garyk » 18 Jun 2011, 20:07

Being very old, I mainly play the older stuff :crazy: blues and rock.

My main skill is 6 string, but I've also played bass for 25 years ...
Good gear: various basses, (incl fretless), reasonable amp.

Very good groove, and enjoy tight rhythm section.

I tend not to play "note for note", and enjoy some improv.
Available for .... um ... :shrug:

Prefer easy going and personable bands.
Can do duo, etc.
