ABOUT

My main instrument is guitar. Preferably lead type stuff. I have a shred metal based style of technique used to play stuff like rock, metal, funk, jam, progressive, fusion, jazz. Very comfortable with a lot of genres and love playing something new I can jump into and learn. When it comes to drums, I know all the basics and can play rock drumming with ease. I've taken percussion in band for 5 years. I'm also very comfortable with time signature changes. I've done a little bit of jazz on drums but not much. For Bass, I can slap pretty well for funk type stuff and lay down simple groovy bass lines. Nothing too fancy though. I would say I'm a functioning keyboardist that can play chords and scales pretty well. Just can't really do anything fancy on the keys. As a vocalist, I have no problem singing back ups with others and harmonizing. I was in choir for a couple years in High School and sang in the schools top choir. I'm comfortable singing lead vocals as well and am currently working on writing my own lyrics and playing guitar with my vocals. When it comes to writing songs, have have a good understanding of how all the parts fit together and what each role is.
