SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist - Bass, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Violin, Accordion, Electronic Music.
I am starting again after a dormant period due to life challenges, but at almost 50 yrs old, I finally know this is a passion (and not just a hobby).
I'm open to ideas and some different styles; I enjoy latin, classical, and bluegrass sounds as well as music created by my influences. My go-to music is mainly hard rock - for guitar, I like the sounds you'd get from scales like the phrygian mode.
I have the basics on drums, and I am an absolute beginner on bass, but I am willing to work with someone else, or others, who have a vision.
I am starting accordion because, well, I love music, and talk about expanding your range...!
If anyone is an advanced beginner like me and would like to jam or learn to play in sync together, contact me.
I plan on upgrading in December to be able to send/receive messages.

My influences are all over the place, and from so many different eras and rock sub-genres. I'll just put my hard rock influences into focus:
Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow);
Donald Roeser (Blue Oyster Cult);
Frank Infante (Blondie);
Alice in Chains;
Alex Lifeson (of Rush) and Vivian Campbell, both for their incredible range and knowledge of guitar music.
Current bands I like, local to Pittsburgh: The Lopez, Greywalker, Solarbun, Daily Grind (all these bands fu*king rock!)
Other from last decade: The Accident Experiment, Mastodon (!!!), Silversun Pickups, Foals (whose most recent album is very good!), Metallica of course, etc.
