SEEKINGBand to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar.
Education: Frankfurt Conservatory of Music, Frankfurt, Germany. Three years - classical guitar.
Self-taught in Jazz/Fusion style. Can rock if I have to though!
Sensitive player who reads, has a good ear, can improvise well and most of all plays with feeling from the heart, more so than playing as many notes as one can or so mechanical. Leaves open spaces and attempts to be more melodic. Listens to all band members and attempts to Lay Back? when necessary.
I always attempt to interject the proper guitar tone/sound for the song/mood of the song (I'm a TONE FREAK). I'm not over-bearing; no ego; very humble person; no drugs; no alcohol! Like to have FUN at music! I do wood shed when I have too!
Also write contemporary jazz. Am challenging myself this year to compose two (2) symphonies.
I also play Latin percussion and guitar synth.
Can play acoustic and nylon string effectively.
