Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other.


Been out of a band for over a year. Looking to start up again. Looking for an original band, not a covers band (although I don't mind throwing in some covers at times). Also looking to be innovative musically.

I am primarily a lead guitarist. Also a bassist, but presently not in possession of bass gear. While capable of vocals, it is not my strong point, and I also have difficulty attempting to sing and play guitar at the same time. I am not very good of a lyricist, though I do have some written.

Also, I am capable of using any tuning.
