ABOUT

*Note - I would like to make this part pretty clear before anyone contacts me, the one thing I want no matter what is to be able to record albums and to play live shows. As I said below, my long term goal is to be able to make a living off of touring and recording. That being said, I'm also okay if I don't make a living off of music. As long as I'm having fun and I'm staying true to myself, I don't really care how big the band I'm in is.

**About Me -

I'm a lead guitarist and I've been in a few different bands but none of them have really had the same vision that I do. At the moment I'm looking to make an album of originals and, in the long run, make a career out of music by recording albums and touring.

I do have a Y.o.u.T.u.b.e channel if you're interested in hearing any of my playing. Just search up my name on Y.o.u.T.u.b.e and you should find it. I don't have any originals on it at the moment as I am very protective about my own stuff. Maybe a little too protective.

Since I can't contact anyone on here, you can message me on F.a.c.e.B.o.o.k, T.w.i.t.t.e.r or by email. Jacobchroussis(at)G-mail(dot)com is my email.

I also have a website at jacobchroussis(dot)com if you want to take a look at that. If you look at the music tab on my website, I have a list of all the covers I know how to play at this time. The list gets changed around every now and then depending on if I learn a new song or if I've forgotten how to play one.
