ABOUT

I have a feeling these rating systems are pretty subjective. I am pretty good at lead guitar and I can definitely keep a rhythm. I can sheepishly sing, but I am happy to do it. Also hopeful to take some singing lessons in the next year.

I wouldn't consider myself an "expert" I don't think, but my brother who is a very talented guitarist has played with many bandmix musicians and he said I probably rate in this range... so I put expert :-)

I'm familiar with the modes, I enjoy dorian and mixo the best. I can get around the neck pretty well on lead but there's still some black spots too.

In terms of chord voicings I know chords in many places on the neck and I tend to rely on chord tones pretty heavily when soloing. I'd like to expand from there.

I indicated I do not want to join a band because my main goal here is to get together with some people and have fun with no expectations of where it will go. Just enjoy playing music for music sake. Not at all opposed to playing an open mic or coffee shop though, if that's where it went.

EQUIPMENT

1952 Thin Skin Replica Strat. Boss ME-50 effects processor.

Scarlett 2i4 for that I haven't used in a long time. Used to use it to play music with a friend who was good with Abelton. Definitely open to getting back into that.

Micro Cube amp.

a bunch of random pedals that I don't use a ton anymore since I have the Boss.
