SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
Bass Guitarist for a few years, I tend to practice for a couple of hours, two-three times per week, and I'm getting fairly adept at many different styles. I can often drop-in on many songs that I hear, plus I can "imaginaire" my own parts, if required.
Currently learning Acoustic/Electric Guitar and Keyboards, which is coming on ok.
Previous bands include:
40 Years On and Stereolithic (UK).
Stinky Fingers: a beatsy mix of Alternative, Indie, Art College, Goth/Dark Wave, Synth-Rock and other left-of-centre stuff.
The Crapolas: similar to above but heading towards more of a Metal heavier groove.
Neither bands are up & running properly yet, but if/when it happens, then it happens . .
