ABOUT

Experienced lead/rhythm guitarist with lead & backing vocals located in NJ shore area. I also have some ability on keyboards and bass if needed. I have some music education, and I'm told I have perfect pitch. I'm comfortable learning and playing by ear, pick up quickly and can learn songs note for note. I consider myself to be a versatile open-minded musician, with years of experience playing classic and southern rock, blues, pop, metal, etc. Currently I am in 2 working cover bands (electric & acoustic). I can be reached at chrispt600 at ver i zon
