ABOUT

Play lead, rythym gtr, a little bass. Prefer to be only guitar in band. Write music and lyrics, have probably 30 songs or more. People seem to like my stuff. Can sing backup. Can produce. Want to do all originals with a few classics like Zep, Floyd, Purple, some reworked my own way. Looking to record and play out. Need drums, bass, vocals. I don't have just one style. I usually play heavy, but not thrashy, sort of Zep meets Floyd meets Tool meets Soundgarden kinda vibe maybe. I like to play some stuff downtuned to CGDGBE. I've started playing acoustic more lately, with a kinda Spanish style but still spacey Floydish. Even reworked Freebird, a Sade song, and some System of a Down into slow acoustic versions. Like I said, no 2 songs sound the same. I also want vocal harmonies ala Queen, SOAD, and Alice in Chains. Looking for like minded people who are into it. Any age, but 30''s -40's would probably be best.
