    Self taught since age of 16. Played bass on Rock N Roll bands in the 70's and 80's. Just local music for fun.

    In 1990 joined a gospel choir played bass with a full band ensemble til 2000.

    After a 5 years break, re-joined smaller scale band in 2005 and still playing Gospel music for this band in a french community church.
    I like to improve my skills by listening to different styles of bass riffs from different bass players.

    Its an Art. The art of discovering, experimenting but above all develop a unique way to improve songs by giving it a special "touch" of flavor.
