SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Unfortunately the pandemic has killed of a few projects and I am looking to start or join an established band. Very experienced and dedicated lead guitarist. Preferred genres are Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. Preferred set format is a mix of well known covers with some originals mixed in. I'm capable of learning just about anyone's stuff note for note. Pro capabilities and equipment. I'm in the NW burbs not far from the Woodfield mall. *** james kroll (all one word) at c o m c a s t dot net.

Influences

First and foremost. Tony Iommi. As he taught me how to play guitar, whether he knows it or not. But branching out from a lead guitar perspective, lots of influences. Joe Satriani. Steve Vai. Paul Gilbert. Frank Zappa. Ritchie Kotzen. I like players who have something original to say.

EQUIPMENT

Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Combo. Hughes and Kettner Mk2 head paired with a Mesa 4x12 slant cabinet. And too many guitars to list :). My pride and joy are my Ibanez 2012 RG J Custom (in Amethyst). My Les Paul Elegant and my 7 string Schecter Hellraiser, which is one bad ass MF of a guitar.
