ABOUT

I'm a guitarist looking for a good Classic Rock/Rock/Classic Metal band to play with. I have been playing seriously for a good majority of my life. I have always played by ear and learned by tabs, but it never takes me too long to memorize anything. I have a lot of experience in front of large crowds. I'm a very quiet guy with a big personality on stage, as far as the music is concerned anyway. I take pride in my ear for tuning and tone. I also love recreating the badass solos of all my guitar heroes. I work full time, but I work in 12 hour shifts so I'm only unavailable 3 days a week and every 3rd weekend. I miss playing for people so I want to get back out there.

Influences

If you can think of a great guitarist, I'm sure he or she has influenced me in some form or another. My greatest guitar influences come from the likes of Tom Scholz of Boston, Phil Collen of Def Leppard, and Brian May of Queen. The holy trifecta. Others include, but are not limited to, Zakk Wylde, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Synyster Gates, Slash, and also many of my various past professors and instructors.

EQUIPMENT

Guitars: 2007 Gibson Les Paul Supreme, 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard T, Martin OM-28 Acoustic
Amps: Vox AC-30 with Alnico Blues, Orange Rockverb 100 Mk III head on an Orange PPC412 full stack
Effects: I get most of my rock sound from an old 1987 Rockman Sustainor box by Tom Scholz, but I have a variety of pedals that I will use for any particular effects that I want.
Note: The only gear that I have consistently are my Les Pauls and my Rockman box. I tend to trade, buy and sell somewhat frequently for the sake of trying new things. Just a heads up.
