Lead Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

I'm a 30yo guitarist/vocalist with ten years of gigging under my belt. I play/have played any of the rock genres, as well as blues, roots rock, country, southern rock, etc and I'm looking to join or assemble a band near New Bern. I'm a very committed band member, and I love to gig. Practice is cool, but I don't want to fall into the practice rut and never get gigs. Bands who gig more often need little to no practice.
I'm an easy bandmate, and I'd like to have easy bandmates. I prefer egos to be left at the door and I'd like to avoid volume battles with other guitar players. I'm happy to share the lead time with another player. Really, I'm just looking for a relaxed atmosphere with musicians who are serious about playing well.

EQUIPMENT

ES-335, Tele, Les Paul, Reverend Warhawk RT, Supro 1624T Dual tone, ‘65 Super Reverb, various pedals. Nothing over the top. I'm a tone hound looking for the purest tone I can achieve with my guitar and amp before adding pedals.
