I've been thinking about doing a two piece with a guitarist who can also sing and/or harmonise. I haven't done a two piece before. It makes sense to me to automate the drums and bass, and maybe some other sounds, but would want to play as much as possible live otherwise you might as well just do karaoke hehe. Not looking at doing any big gigs, just casual sort of stuff. I haven't played in any bands for a while so I am not familiar with the demands these days. I am into writing originals, but I would rather play covers live and just record the originals. That would change if the originals attracted some serious attention of course.

Having said all this a full band is also a possibility. I don't want to get too serious about any of this; music is supposed to be fun, yeah?

I have a wide vocal range:

I can play lead guitar sounds on the keyboard and I am into creating guitar riffs:

I also like the Hammond sound as well as the electric guitar sound, hence the handle. I like writing music for both of these sounds. It is hard to record vocals at home so I haven't bothered trying. I sometimes go on the internet and contribute to other people's projects:

I'm not really a blues player but was invited to add something to this one :-)

Cheers.
