- Bass Guitar Instruction
I started in punk and metal, but mostly play funk fusion now. I'm currently trying to learn to play trad jazz. I play a little guitar too. I play for artistic rather than commercial reasons. I take it far more seriously than a mere hobby, but I don't do it for a living.
- Teaching Credentials:
- Playing since 1989, gigging since 1994. Not actively seeking students, but willing to share what I've learned if someone is really interested.
