Carl 's Musical Background

I have been playing keyboards extensively  since the age of eleven. He is now er... well...somewhat...older...at 56.

I am an experienced keyboard player, having played since the age of 11. 

I obtained an O', level, 'A' pass, in music and can therefore sight read with reasonable dexterity.

I have played in many, many bands over the last 40 years. Examples being, David Bowie tribute band, general MOR function bands, rock bands, classic rock bands and various duos/trios.

My general style is that of a keyboardist/synthesist, and although I am not a piano player, I play most piano parts competently.  My main strengths is in having a  very strong lead solo playing style. Additionally, I generally use contrasting sounds for each hand part, e.g. orchestral/organ, piano/strings etc, in order to fill out the overall sound, rather than clash with the bass player's/guitar player's parts. 

I am a dedicated professional in attitude and ability, however, I only play for pleasure, and subsequently do not partake in any rumination for any engagements, excepting direct fuel transportation costs to gigs.

My favorite Band/Artist is without exception, Rick Wakeman. Rick Wakmam, of course, was the keyboard player for the 70's progressive rock band Yes. Other music tastes include fusion and progressive rock such as Stanley Clarke, Pat Matheny, Al Di Meola, Santana, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Camel. On the lighter side, Blondie, Slade, Sweet, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Marley, ABBA, Spandau Ballet, David Bowie, Roxy Music, are all much appreciated.
