I am looking for a new project to get involved in. Although I am a freelance musician, primarily as an electric and acoustic bassist, I do play acoustic/electric guitars. Money is not a driving force in any new project as that is already covered. I have been a professional TV/radio/studio musician for 30 years and a teacher for around 20. Age or look(s) are unimportant . If your out there and interested get in touch we have nothing to loose!
