Band to Join.

ABOUT

I played every bar/ club in Los Angeles when I moved here in my 20s. When I got into my 30s, I realized I wasn't going to become a rock star and needed a career. I have a fantastic job that I love and it's afforded me a great life with lots of freedoms. I got back into playing guitar years ago and while I consider myself a guitar hobbyist, I practice a lot and take my playing seriously.

I'm professional in my work life and that carries over into my personal life. If I'm given a list of songs to learn for a rehearsal or gig, I will learn them and show up prepared.
For the last two years I have been playing in Allison Chains, which is an all female tribute band to Alice in Chains. We played House of Blues, Washington, Seattle, Portland, Tucson, and Phoenix in front of 1,300 people I love playing live.

I'm looking to play in a cover/ tribute band with fun dedicated people. I am not interested in an original project. Ofcrg (at) a o l (dot) com)

Influences

I love rock and roll of all types and a great song is a great song no matter what the genre. I like playing classic rock, southern rock, country and since I was a kid in the 80s, any music from that era.
I have samples of my playing on a be link. Please ignore the stupid Ozzy hand sign I flash at the end of a couple of the clips. I made these videos for a friend who was just starting to learn how to play guitar. Although there's nothing wrong with an Ozzy rock and roll sign!

Instrument experience:

Rhythm Guitar:
Advanced

EQUIPMENT

American Fender Stratocasters, Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard, Gibson SG, Marshall JCM 1/2 stack, and a bunch of pedals I rarely use. I like the rhythm sound of a guitar plugged into an amp without a lot of effects.
