- Influences and Teachers:
i'm inspried by anybody who plays it like it f***ing means something.
mostly self-taught: i played guitar for 15 yrs before "crossing over", but didn't really dig deep into theory until i really needed to (i.e. when i started playing the bass)
but if there's anyone who thinks i'm a decent bass player i owe it all to chad "chadzilla" johnson. he's a drummer who i've had the good fortune to play several hundred gigs with in many different groups. i never knew what "pocket" meant until my first 30 seconds playing with him. now i live there.
