SEEKINGDrums, Bass Guitar, Background Singer.
I play several other instruments besides guitar including keyboard, drums (been playing for 12 years), harmonica, bass guitar, I fooled around with slide guitar, and I sing. Looking for a talented bass player and drummer who would like to start practicing with another guitar player/vocalist and myself (we have just recently recorded an album with just the two of us doing all instruments and vocals). We would love to start playing venues as soon as we can get a nice set list together as a band.

My very first influence was one year of piano lessons when I was about 8. Then, one night I watched The Beatles play "Twist and Shout" on their Anthology videos and decided to teach myself the drums. Years, later I drifted into Metallica (every single album beat for beat), Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and STP. I continued to play the drums in a punk band named Extra Testicle where I found some punk influences such as NOFX, Pennywise, Bad Religion, and AAA. When I was about 16 I picked up a guitar and (I had played bass for a few years before in a band) started playing Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, and Matchbox 20 songs. I gained a passion for this instrument and soon found myself loving just about any and all instruments (Hopefully I'll learn them all someday) and styles of music. Now I'm a songwriter whose found respect for most bands out there, and would just love to be out there with them.
As of now I own 2 Acoustic Guitars (a Fender Squier, and a Big Baby Taylor), 2 drumsets (a Tama 4-piece Rockstar kit, and a 6-piece Pearl Export Kit, all with Zildjian cymbals) and a bass guitar (Fender Squier). I am also currently borrowing a keyboard from my mother (a Roland E-14) and an Electric Guitar from my girlfriend (an Ibanez). My friend and only bandmate (as of now) owns a Fender Jaquar. We both have some mics laying around to.
