What instrument do you play and how long have you been playing, are you a singer?

I started playing guitar decades ago, played in a band in the late 60's. All this really means is that I've owned a guitar for a long time. Switched to bass about 10 years ago because we needed one for the band at church. Been playing almost every week since then. I'm willing to give singing a shot.

Do you view yourself as a mentor or one who will benefit more from practicing with others?

I suspect I would benefit more from playing with the group, but willing to help in any way I can.

How can this Meetup group best benefit you personally? What most would you like to see occur at Meetups to ensure this is a great experience?

I view any chance to play as a benefit. Having a weekly practice would give me an opportunity to improve my skills. And being around others who play for the joy of it without alot of egos is what I like.

How long have you been listening to blues music? What Blues songs would you most like to play?

Been listening all my life, but didn't recognize some of it as blues until later in life. I like all kinds of music, with the possible exception of opera and rap. I get to Memphis a couple times a year and really enjoy spending time on Beale Street listening and talking to the musicians.

Do you get along well with others? What will you do to ensure that this is the best Meetup Group?

I play well with others. At this point in my life I'm not really interested in doing anything that isn't fun and interesting to me. I don't enjoy being around people who constantly criticize, condem, and complain about everything. I try to be an encourager, to lift people up when ever I can.


Born to play the blues, forced to work!
