ABOUT

I'm looking to join a band to play out on a usual basis and possibly tour with as well. I've decided to pursue music full time as I'm in between schooling at the moment and have the time to commit now. I'm in my early 20s though I have around 10 years experience playing guitar (most of which I took lessons during) and about 5 years experience playing in bands live(cover and original).

I play solid rhythm as well as being able to add additional texture and counterpoint to preexisting parts as a secondary guitarist. I can play lead as well, but I don't shred out of taste, I generally stick to improv or vocal-like leads. Most of my background is mostly in rock, anything from classic rock to current alt. I also focus on ambient, electronic, post, punk, and ska. As far as learning preexisting songs go, I can learn and play by ear quickly as well as read charts and music notation. I write songs as well as can do a bit of backup vocals if needed. Though guitar is my main instrument I play bass, cello(classically trained for multiple years), and a bit of keys.
