SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'M A LIFELONG, DEVOTED, DEDICATED, PROFESSIONAL, TECHNICALLY PROFICIENT, IMPROV ADEPT, DEGREED ( AA / BA Performance Major - CLASSICAL GUITAR ), PERFORMING / TEACHING CLASSICAL, ACOUSTIC, ELECTRIC GUITARIST; VOCALIST ( Register - Bass / Baritone ); COMPOSER; LYRICIST; ARRANGER

In addition to the four genres of music Bandmix limits these profiles to that I have listed above ( CLASSICAL, ROCK, PROGRESSIVE, JAZZ ), I am also very much into and competent playing: ACOUSTIC, BLUES ( Delta, Chicago ), FUSION ( Jazz / Rock ), CLASSIC ROCK, MELODIC / SYMPHONIC METAL, WORLDBEAT, NEW AGE, CELTIC.

THIS BEING A PROFILE UNDER THE " MUSICIANS SEEKING BANDS " CATAGORY, I WILL OF COURSE CONSIDER A POSITION
IN AN ENSEMBLE FOCUSED ON COVER MATERIAL IF THEY ARE PROFESSIONAL, ESTABLISHED, WORKING, FULL TIME ENSEMBLES. MY PRIMARY FOCUS OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS HOWEVER HAS BEEN THE COMPOSITION, RECORDING, PRODUCTION AND PERFORMANCE OF ORIGINAL MATERIAL AND I WOULD HAVE TO GIVE PRIORITY TO THESE TYPES OF ENSEMBLES FIRST.
