Ambrose Bierce

1993
My cousin, Matt Connors was an up and coming drummer living in Hornell, NY. He had a band in need of a bass player. I always wanted to play bass in a band so I filled in for about 6 months. The band was a touch heavier than I was used to but the songs soon grew on me. They played more of a Queensryche style and had and incredible lead singer. We played a coulple of shows and even filmed a video for a community TV station. Fun stuff but I was off to Dallas in the fall and Ambrose Bierce carried on for a few years after that.

Gear:
Modified Aria pro 2 bass. This is the exact bass that pal Bryan Johnson used in my first band, Black Tie. Bryan gave it to me in 1990 and I have used it extensively ever since. It has a bit shorter scale and great sound.
I used my Fender Twin and cab which actually sounded great for bass - very "Cream" sounding.

Recording:
Tascam 464 4-Track cassette. Assorted mics. Remixed in 2005 on pc.
