SEEKING

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

ABOUT

My biggest influence is Garcia along with Dickey Betts, Jimi, Clapton and Santana. I don't try to play like Jerry its just what I like to hear in my head and I try to make it come out of my fingers. I have reliable gear and transportation. I am looking to join a band or start one. I want to make music and have fun doing it. I like to play lead but have as much fun playing rhythm as well. I don't mind trading licks with someone, in fact that is always fun because you learn from the other person. I know how to use dynamics in music and I don't play loud. I have been told a few times to actually turn up, hehe. I just want to enhance the music that I playing. I might not know all the leads note for note. I try to get as close as I can with my own twist to it. I do know when to not do what has been said to me as "The Jerry Leads" on all songs. I have been playing for over 25 years and have a very good working knowledge of music theory. I hope I can get the chance to jam with you, thank you. One thing is I don't sing have tried it and I don't think I am any good, hehe.
