Hi, I guess I should have included this info several years ago when I first joined wikiloops, but better late than never... My name is Roger Hinton from the small town of Minden, LA just east of Shreveport. I was born into a family of music. My father was a professional bass player when I was born. He also played with and taught James Burton who later became Elvis Presley's guitar player. I started out playing violin around 1967. I switched to cello for a couple of years about 1971. In 1968 I asked my father for a guitar and he brought home a 1954 Martin 0-18 acoustic which I still have and play almost daily. I started playing bass around 1972 in bands with guys older than me because bass players were hard to find. My father owned a 1962 Fender jazz bass and a Kustom 100 amplifier, so it was an easy transition for me. Of course I wanted to be the next great guitar player, but there were too many guitarists and not enough bass players so that helped with my decision to switch. I continued as a bass player and sound guy exclusively until 2001.
I've played in many bands over the years both as a guitar and bass player. In the 1980's I started to accumulate PA gear and soon had a full FOH system that could handle almost any local venue. During the 90's I was privileged to be a part of a great band that opened concerts for Charlie Daniels and later for Billy Ray Cyrus (Miley was just a baby when I first met her.). I also worked sound for many top artists at various venues in the area.
I've played almost every genre of music over the years from classical to country to classic rock. My favorite bands include Rush, ZZ Top, Stevie Ray, Aerosmith, Styx, Journey, Bella Fleck, and too many other to keep listing them...
Bass, guitar, acoustic guitar, keyboards
I pretty much gave up playing the violin too many years ago to count although I still have it. I play my 54 Martin 0-18 acoustic a lot. I recently bought a cheap Ibanez electric guitar from a local pawn shop. I just bought an Ibanez SR 400 FL fretless bass from another pawn shop just because I always wanted to try one. Way back in 1989 I bought a Fender Power Jazz Special that I played mostly until 2002 when I was forced, for economic reasons, to sell all of my amps, cabinets and PA gear. I even had to sell my father’s 62 Fender Jazz bass (That one hurt allot and still does...). Oh and I have an M-Audio Prokeys 88 keyboard that I got from a guy for $19.97. He sold it to me for $20, but there were three pennies rolling around inside it that his kids had dropped through the keys so I count that as a refund...
My current recording setup is a Presonus Audiobox USB 96 with Studio One 4 software with lots and lots and lots of plugins... I have a pair of Mackie MR5 mk3 studio monitors and a set of Sennheiser HD6 studio headphones.
