SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
I'm Ben, I've played bass for 6 years in total (had a break through college) so I know my way around the strings with confidence despite lacking any major knowledge of the theory.
I have a full time job so I'm restricted to weekends and evenings but I am a quick learner and can commit to practising.
I've been in a cover band for the past 3 years with only a handful of live shows, organised by myself, and despite the show going well, the rest of the band don't seem that interested in more performances so I thought I'd see if anyone else could use my eagerness!
I've not ventured into the world of writing original songs, but am creative enough to come up with little riffs and fills so I feel it is through lack of opportunity, not ability.
I am fairly dynamic and adaptable so could work nicely with established bands or in a fresh start up.
So yeah, sorry for the information overload, but hopefully it has acted as a good background for myself and my ability. Feel free to message me and have a chat, I look forward to hearing from you!
