SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
31 years old audio engineer, producer, musician (guitarist).
Would Like to play some party metal. I'm really interested in putting together a Van Halen Tribute band. If a tribute doesn't work then Van Halen and other Hair/Party Metal. Ratt, Poison, Winger, Extreme, White Snake, etc.
A little more about myself. I attended the Academy of Contemporary Music in Oklahoma City. My major was Music Production. I've engineered a couple HipHop albums, and worked on a hand full of mixtapes. I ran my own studio for a couple years in OKC. I worked with some talented hiphop artists. I produced a small catalog of hiphop instrumentals.
I've been playing guitar for 18 years now. 10 years I've been serious about it. I formally started on percussion.
I got interested in recording at an early age. I recorded a completely self produced demo on a tascam 4 track when I was 18. Moved on to Digital work stations in my 20's and now I am proficient with all the major DAW's.
I also do guitar service and setups. Specializing in locking and floating bridge systems.
I do refinishes and relic's as well.
