Eden (PM me for phone number)
Prog/Folk (my main thing), Jazz (at a pinch), Rock (sorta) I'll have a crack at anything
About 20 years of experience up my sleve playing in pub rock , jazz, folk and all sorts of bands (including eek..country). I can also play guitar well enough, I just prefer bass...
I mostly play 8 and 12 string octave basses, I can do the four or five string thing as well (sorta) Even an Ashbory
Amp is a Roland Super Cube 60 (silver 80s thing) + I have a Sansamp for the PA if neccessary
Effects as required
I can sing OK (great backing voice but not so good up front)

I tend to be a melodic player with chords for effect rather than just thumping out the roots (which is an artform to me)

Endorser of Cave Passive Pedals (just so you know)
BMR: Blorf My Rig!

Oh! And I woz the chap behind Polymack Basses....
