Im SpiderMonkey!! the guy youve never heard about and never read about in books. lol. I make music...its decent...i play off and on with people on stage but im not in a band. i believe just cuz you jam with someone or play a few shows with them doesnt mean youre a band. thats like saying cuz you put your arm around someone then theyre your significant other all of the sudden...WRONG WRONG WRONG!! lol.
but yeah i enjoy all kinds of music, im friends with all kinds of people, and im extremeley hard to make mad.
My first official CD release is a sampler compiled of 6 random new songs ive made demos of, and 6 tracks towards my "Faceless Angel" CD. Only $6, hit me up for one anytime!! =)
Nothin special to the band history, just a Monkey recordin his music. :)
I play all over Ohio, THE UNDERGROUND THEATRE, Annabelles, Orange Street, Screwey Louis, Scott's Folkatorium, Arabica Coffee House, Clays Park, stuff like that. :)
"I had a funny moment once jammin on a Dead song, we were a good 5 minutes [maybe more...] into just a random jam in the middle of the song, and i forgot what song we were playing, so when my brother signaled me to go back into the change, i was aware that he wanted me to do something....i just didnt know what, so i kinda noodled around until i knew what i was doing again. lol."

Well my bass rig is a Squier MB-4 bass with grover tuners, EMG Select passive pickups, and about 3 1/2 pounds in stickers. I run either a Rogue 15" 120 watt amp, or a Behringer Ultrabass 15" Aluminum cone 300 watt amp, it depends.
I use 3 guitars off and on. One is a Arion2 acoustic electric. My first electric is an SX Les Paul with p90s, and the other electric a Douglas sunburst flying-v. [both electrics purchased from www.rondomusic.net]
And my main pedals are a DOD Classic Tube Overdrive, DigiTech Effect Processor, and a Danelectro EQ.
