Hi all

Wow I never knew this site existed....nice simple layout which I like and everyone seems civil which is great too!

My name is Mark, play mainly covers but getting into a bit of session work here and there too. Been playing since begining of High School, and 26 now. Play occasionally in a covers band called Thran, which used to have a residency at Murpheys on Wellesly St in the Auckland CBD, but now its just the odd gig - although done a few recently at the crib in a three piece on Ponsonby Road.

Signature says my current line up of tools which I don't plan on changing for a long time! Wouldn't mind a fretless version of my Pedulla but dreams are free and they ain't cheap! Love Marcus Miller, Jaco, Wooten, Stanley Clarke, Alain Caron...all the cats, and happiest when I am playing some funk and reggae.

Love to slap SLOWLY but only when its called for. Prefer to keep that on the DL and use it sparingly where appropriate!!! Otherwise Im at home with some poppy Jaco like finger style between my two pickups and keepin it simple.

Enough about me! Keep on grooving ya'll. Peace :)
