ABOUT

Looing for band to join who needs a creative and expressive band-mate.

Prefer to play progressive, heavy metal type instrumentals with thick, syrupy melody, searing solos, or open stringed light, airy chords.
Still love to play three chord songs too. I'll play classical music and then go straight into the heaviest over-driven chomping. Pretty much whatever you need.
I try to play covers as close as possible as they are played by original composers.
I have an endless supply of effects to help create the mood.
Not a graduate. Just studied hard from the instructors at my local music store. I do know my modes and exotic scales, and often use inversions during rhythm.

Can help with background vocals/harmonizing.
