I recently did an Open Mic at Derby's Horse and Groom with a few friendly people to dip my toe in the water, so to speak. I'd now like to take a little swim.

I am offering to learn tunes for people based in or very close to Spondon or Derby city who need a bassist for minor events such as Open Mic with a view to gaining experience. You might have a specific date to aim for or perhaps you just want to jam and see where it goes from there.

I am willing to share costs for rehearsal room fees. I am available during week days too.

Ultimately I would like to find myself in a modest little band that can practice within range of my wallet since I have to use taxis when I can't get my mate to drive me. The aim would be to play local venues and eventually break even on costs.

Good! From little acorns... never too late... erm... nowt as queer as folk... um... never wipe your arse with a broken bottle.

Seriously though, good luck. Playing with other people is good for the soul. So to speak.
