ABOUT

Bass guitar:
I'm searching for a band to join. I am primarily a bass player, but I am also comfortable as a lead vocalist.
I have been part of 2 other bands before, playing bass guitar and also rhythm guitar
My style of playing is fingering rather than using a plectrum.
I am able to play bass guitar and sing lead vocal at the same time, but I would prefer to focus on the bass and provide backing vocals when needed.

Vocals:
I have vocal experience of singing choral and close harmony music.
I would describe my playing style as a mix of Sting, Geddy Lee from Rush, and John Deacon from Queen.
My vocal range (full voice) is from approximately from an E2 to a G above middle C (G4), which is typical for a Baritone.
My head voice can reach up to a G5.

Other instruments:
I can play acoustic guitar and electric (rhythm) guitar, as well as drums, all to an intermediate level.
