ABOUT

Played in bands for 15 years until kid number 2 arrived. Now that shes' a teenager, have recently dusted off my gear and looking for fun, ego-free people to play with, covers and/or originals. Sense of humor a must.

Strong rhythm guitar with some low/medium complexity leads.
Vocals - I was lead vocalist in my prior bands, but I don't need to sing. Happy to sing backup, tenor, good with harmonies.
