ABOUT

I play guitar (both electric and acoustic). I've been playing for at least 5 years but know that i've still got a lot to learn. With the new year I'm planning to practice more and really get my playing, theory and technical abilities down to a T as the past couple of years I've been dealing with a lot of personal issues that have got in the way. This year, that changes. I have always loved music from a very early age and knew I wanted to play guitar since I heard Jimmy Page's solo on Stairway to heaven (cliche I know but Led Zeppelin were my first love). I have so many influences and really want to get somewhere in the music industry as music is my passion. I am also working on my vocal ability this year.

I am looking for other musicians with similar influences that are as committed to a band and progressing far with it as I am. I am very determined and although I know I have got a lot to improve upon I am confident that practice makes perfect and having strong will-power is key. Looking for other musicians with same outlook and commitment to a band. If you know you won't be putting effort in or that you aren't as committed please don't contact me as that would be a waste of time. Cheers.

EQUIPMENT

I have just moved to california so I currently don't have all my equipment with me but I am planning to get it this year (I have an Ibanez electro/acoustic and an Epiphone Les Paul back home). I currently have a guitar and amp (admittedly not great) but that I am able to use though. Another hindrance is that I am currently not driving but I am planning to this year and I am willing to compromise in terms of travel etc. I am just really committed to making the dream a reality. Music and guitar is where my heart lies.
