ABOUT

Hi Everyone,

I've played Metal for close to 15 years. I started playing guitar in 2001, I'm self taught. I have a pretty good ear so I pick things up very quickly.

I was in several bands:
Absolute Ruin - Rhythm Guitar/Back Up Vox 2001-2008
New Weapons of Ruin - Rhythm Guitar/Back Up Vox 2010-2015
Locker Room Talk (Cover Band) - Playing Bass 2017-2018

I've worked with many musicians and I'm pretty laid back and try to convenience everyone as much as possible. I am however hoping to work with people who are committed enough to play shows at least 1-3 times a month. Practice weekly. Record at some point.

I'm not Dave Mustaine by any means but I'm a pretty thorough writer. Most of my skill lies in my intuitive writing. I regularly write in garage band and can send sample stuff upon request.

I can also jam pretty well because of my ear.

I live in Bayonne NJ. I have a car and am looking to join or start a band somewhere in Hudson County.

I promised myself I would never stop playing music so that's that.
