    Teaching Credentials:
    I am a willing teacher for beginner bassists whether 4 string or extended-range. I have played and performed for better than 47 years to date.
    I've been playing bass since 1969. Started on guitar earlier & hacking on keys. Bands needed bassists. Once I discovered it, no turning back. Always had a yearning for creating music with an extended-range bass. Discovered it in the early 90's. I enjoy playing various styles of music with bands where more conventional bass content is applied with my 7-string. I also perform solo and always invite collaboration.
