Influences

Many Musicians and Song Writers from 1950 to modern day - now.

Play what I / we feel.

More info:

I want to learn together and apply what we learn and perhaps put into a local band with 2 to 7 musicians ... to be able to JAM, explore and learn other songs together, have fun and if you are into working out song lists together in i.e. BAND setting or with other interesting musician(s) ... GREAAATT. ....& with PATIENCE, preciseness and effort, practice = excellent result. Hey I'm an Artist so FREE FORM AND IMPROVE / JAM is WHAT I LOVE TOO :). BUT I WANT TO PRACTICE SOME COVERS with Some musicians creative people as well. I can read some standard music + most tablature + by ear, possibly write music if I want to.

My goal : Getting back into the groove action thing after a intermittent break. Work on set-lists as it appears while having fun with musician(s) or band. I am also getting settled permanent in the West Port Credit area from Hamilton and Toronto area.

Maybe we eventually play gigs, bars and outdoor summer events and county fairs too IF YOU ALL WANT TO?. Play in a studio too?.
