I'm a Rhythm/Lead guitarist looking for an alternative, metal and blues band. Playing covers and adding originals to the list would be a plus. I've been playing for 28 yrs and can learn the cover tunes very quick. I'm looking for a band who tends to practice 2 times a week and wants to gig out. Serious minded people I like to work with.
The styles of classic rock, and modern rock music. Alice In Chains, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Ozzy, Godsmack, Kansas, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Stone Temple pilots, 38 Special, Three Doors Down, etc. To name a few.
