SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Harmonica.

ABOUT

I've been playing around with the guitar for over 40 years and am completely self-taught. Unfortunately, grad school and family health issues required me to put the guitar away for 10 years but, fortunately, I found the desire to play again, 3 years ago.

I've never played in a band before, although I have jammed in a band situation several times many years ago. I play primarily rhythm but am able to play lead, as well.

I'm hoping to get together with other "closet" musicians with similar musical interests to practice and play music. I'm quite interested in a dual, harmony lead guitar sound like Thin Lizzy and Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac, but it doesn't have to be in that direction. However, I'm definitely into the harder rock material.

I'm looking to join up with either a lead and or rhythm guitarist, vocalist, bass, drummer, keyboardist and probably / maybe harmonica and brass.

I'm able to get together evenings and weekends.
