I am a 22 year old guitar player capable of playing lead and can sing either lead or backup vocals. I am looking to join or help form a serious four or five piece rock band (g/g/b/d or g/g/b/d/k), preferably with one or two other singers. I am a classically trained musician with a good grounding in music theory who has played several rock gigs and is looking for a regular band. I would like to play mostly originals but am not opposed to throwing a few covers into a set. I write my own songs but am also looking to work with someone else's songs as well. I would like to start writing, rehearsing, and gigging in the next two or three months. I also play some bass.
My story: I am a right-handed person and since age 11 played guitar right-handed. Eleven months ago I badly broke my left pinky and lost significant mobility and dexterity in that finger. Since then I have been playing guitar left-handed, and am now at a higher skill level to what I was before the injury. Also I have perfect pitch.
