I'm a 22 year old student at Southampton University looking to form a band to have fun in, do some covers, create new stuff and do some gigs around the City. I've been playing for around 5 yrs and am self taught, my theoretical knowledge is not great but I am willing to learn and I find being in a band makes me learn much faster. Had a band last yr but as 3rd yr ended so did that you can check out my skills on some home recordings we made at http://www.myspace/mustardtigermusic

Was brought up on classic rock and hippie stuff so anything from Deep Purple to the Mamas and the Papas so that stuff will always be an influence but I'm more in to heavy metal myself ranging from Classic stuff like Sabbath to more modern stuff and having been about 12 or 13 when Nu metal came round have always had a few favourites from that area. Blues is not my biggest love but I do appreciate it and have the odd fav like Robert Johnson plus it is always fun to play.
Down with me I have a 4 string Jazz Bass that I put together Myself wont bore you with the details but it has a nice tone.
At home I have a number of other basses including a 5-string and electro acoustic if needed.
I have 180w Ashdown electric blue combo amp so plenty of power for moderate venues.
I also have an esp DJ600 electric guitar can't play it all that well but would be willing to let others use it if needed.
A few Fx pedals but not many as I don't really see the need for them on bass do love a little bit of Wah action though.
I also have a Line 6 Ux2 which creates pretty good sounding home recordings as can be heard on the myspace page.
