SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Saxophone, Keyboard.

ABOUT

I am a guitarist with over 30 years playing experience off and on and looking to form a classic rock/blues band. I play lead and rhythm electric guitar, 6 and 12 string acoustic guitar, classical guitar and fretless bass. I also play some keyboards, percussion and sing. My idea is to form a four or five piece band focusing on original music and interesting signature versions of classic rock songs not overplayed by everyone else. I am less concerned about having virtuosos as I am at having proficient team players with good musical ears, an ability to contribute, and a desire to make good, interesting music. I would like to practice 2-3x a week and look to record and play out.
