ABOUT

Lead Guitarist looking for a band to join. I'm all over the place. Not really sure what i'm looking for but i'll know it when I find it. I have a rock-metal-punk-pop center playing wise but fell into the Industrial-Electronic movement in the 80s-90s among other things. Hard to play guitar to a lot of that but I tried. Point is that really opened me up creatively. I don't have a lot of expectations but the goal being to find a group I can make good music with and hopefully Gig once in a while. Currently I am recording my own ideas via Logic DAW. I also play bass and drums on an armature level for recording sake but did start out as a drummer. Newd Noid isn't exactly what I'm about but is an example of what happens when I try to record because I'm desperately trying to find something different, original but that's harder and harder to do. I learned from recording over the years in my basement just how much I need others as I have ideas but can only get so far playing with myself, so to speak.

EQUIPMENT

Enough to play bars, small to medium venues. I got into amp modding for a minute when I jumped into the EVJ modding scene, created an approx 8 watt design using multiple schematics (6v6 octal and the El84 it came with, is loud as fuck) a 22 watt Bugera combo (booger) and a Peavy Valve King 100 watt tube head. Last my beloved 68 Silver Face Fender Bassman head and an original 2x12 cab inc tiltbacks. Has original Oxford speakers (I know the Jensens are the most popular and some hate the oxfords but mine are sugary, yummy! I had that modded by Guy Hedricks of Guytron fame so it's got a Plexi like second channel. Guitar wise I only have my beloved Fender Strat I've had since I was 10 Years old that I ended up slightly modding adding a Duncan JB Jr bridge Pup. Also an Ibanez Bass and Roland V drums among other erratta.
