    I am an experienced bassist and have been playing for over 30 years. I have played a wide variety of styles and haev played everything from metal to wedding music. I have been actively playing at local churches for the last 6 years.

    I am currently self employed and have quite a bit of flexibility. I am looking at going into music full time so travel and gigs are not an issue. Also considering doing session / studio work. My main bass is a Yamaha 5 string (TRB-10050 and with an Ampeg B2RE head and Ampeg HLF-410 cabinet. I tend to like a nice punchy sound but went with the Ampeg B2RE rig for size and flexability in getting awied variety of sounds (less punch for blues, etc).

    I could upgrade the amp if more power is needed (Ampeg SVT Pro with and Ampeg 8×8 cabinet – possibly bi-amped and doubel that). I also have a collection of basses (Fender, Brian Moore, Ibanez, etc) for backup and studio work. My primary style is finger style but I can play with a pick or play slap bass (my weakest style) if the song requires it.

    Unfortunately all my current playing has been live and I am not sure if any of it was recorded so I do not have any MP3’s for you to review.

    Not sure what else you may want to know. If yo uhave any questions, feel free to contact me via email or call me directly on my cell at 517-896-2079.

    Thank you for your time and considertation. A response would be greatly apprecaited.
