Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.


I started playing when I was about 12. I was taught by a guy based out of Dellview Music named Galen Niles. I was a student of his for several years until I developed a ear good enough to learn most of the material I was interested in, and had become pretty well versed in theory and the technical aspects of guitar playing. Then I got into to punk and a couple years later I quit playing all together. I was about 26. About a year or so ago I started playing again and I have been pleasantly surprised that it is coming back to me. My goal is basically to have fun, maybe gig around some, even do some diy recordings for distribution on the web. I'm interested in playing covers and originals. Stylistically, I'm still into punk/garage/psychedelic/thrashy/hard rock and roll.
