    Gender:
    Male
    Location:
    Atlanta
    Occupation:
    Writer
    Current Setup:
    Rickenbacker 4003/GK RB400II-Ampeg115.
    Practice bass is a fretless Breedlove.
    Also have a little Ampeg BA8.
    Favorite Genres:
    Rock, blues, jazz, punk.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I'm in a band called the Emory Village People with a couple guys I went to high school with. We got together to play "Chronic Town" by REM beginning to end as a party trick. Now we cover all sorts of stuff, from 60s rock (Beatles, Who, Kinks, Pink Floyd) to random 70s (Modern Lovers, Elvis Costello, Talking Heads) to random 80s (Minutemen, REM). We throw in some originals nowadays, too. Based in Atlanta/Decatur, GA.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    I've only ever had one bass, the Rick 4003. A few guitars over the years. My fave was a strat copy played through an old Kustom.
    G.A.S. List:
    A fretless Rickenbacker.
    Influences and Teachers:
    My grandfather's jazz collection. Therefore, Paul Chambers is everything. Plus the entire world of music. My favorite band is the Minutemen.
    I haven't had any teachers. Unless you count the people who taught me piano and saxophone lessons way back when,
    and my elementary school band director.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    I'm an avid road cyclist and regularly brutalize myself on hard training rides around Atlanta.
    I'm a guy who loves to practice and play the bass. I played piano and saxophone in grade school. I've been messing with guitars since I was about 13, but didn't pick up the bass until a couple years ago, basically to play in the REM thing mentioned above. These days my ambition is to play jazz bass. I started with material from Cliff Engel's Institute of Bass, which was great. Now I'm working from the Rufus Reid book. It's a great way to pass the time. I see it as my "keep the mind healthy into old age" pursuit. Will I ever be any good at playing jazz? Time will tell. I actually just love to play so it doesn't really matter.
