    Hobbies and Interests:
    Playing my bass, technology, the great outdoors
    I am mostly self-taught and learned the ropes from professional musicians at gigs and attending various jazz clinics. I worked through the Carole Kay method books and took lessons from Wrecking Crew bassist Joe Obsorn. I read music and can play from chord charts and lead sheets. I consider myself a commercial player with a rock background as I started playing in the late 60’s and through the classic rock era. I am also heavily influenced by 60’s R&B and Jazz. I enjoy playing all styles. Heck, I just enjoy playing music. My goal is to never stop learning and continue to be the best that I can be.
