Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

I am the bassist for 13 Folds band [13FoldsBandNC],which formed late last year with experienced musicians (drummer from Third Degree, rhythm guitarist and vocalist from Flood, bassist from Fourth Hour). We are currently looking for a solid, dependable lead guitarist to finish off our team. Reach out to me if you have an interest--I can send you a list of some 70-odd tunes to choose a few from that you might happen to already know. We play original music and covers from Rival Sons, Shinedown, Chevelle, Creed, Three Days Grace, 3 Doors Down, Metallica, Audioslave, Black Stone Cherry, and many others,

Prior to joining 13 Folds I was the bassist for (and a founding member of) the Fayettevile band Fourth Hour, which formed in 2011. We opened for Quiet Riot and Warrant at the 2015 Fayetteville Dogwood Festival, and for Winger and Skid Row at the 2017 Dogwood Festival. Unfortunately, our singer left to pursue a different musical genre; we were not able to replace him--and then came Covid-19...Fourth Hour sadly reached its Final Hour.

I'm a guitarist as well. Genres of interest: rock (classic rock, alternative, southern rock)--and Country. I concentrate on playing and feeling the music. I do love to rock, but I play Country as well--either on guitar, or bass. I have plenty of experience, and love to perform. My schedule is open; I don't work unusual hours!

I sing backing vocals and can hold a beat on the skins. I'm stable, dependable, easy going, flexible--and always willing to write, jam, and experiment. I don't care about anyone's gender: female, male, undecided, no problem--as long as partners don't distract, and you know music!

Write me at panzerfuhrer (at the big Y). com (no spaces).
I do some writing myself, and have contributed bridges, progression patterns, etc.
