What style of music do you prefer to play? (eg. modern rock, jazz, country, etc.)

I like whatever is melodically, harmonically, and lyrically interesting. I think feeling and lack of pretension is more important than technicality.

Who are some of your favourite musical influences?

Whatever I like, what's not too stupid. Too many to list. Maybe try later. I seem to prefer blues-flavored music; however, just 12-bar blues gets boring.

Do you sing?

Yes. Lead or harmony. Enjoy singing harmony.

What instruments do you play?

guitar, bass guitar

How long have you been making music?

On and off for a few decades. Played in a modest church band and sang with the madrigal group at the Portland Community Music Center. Not doing either now.
