ABOUT

Looking to play Nylon string, Steel String, Electric Guitar - Rhythm or Lead.

I understand Scales and can play quite a few of them. I can play Keyboards too, but that is limited to pad type playing, not intricate piano type work. More background chord or padding.

I am 58, but my guitar playing leans more towards the band shown below, I lean more towards playing "beautiful" music, with an penchant towards playing lead guitar. I play "heavy" Octaves and 5ths, but I don't have a problem playing an EbMa7b5 with a nice chorus/flange/delay clean sound. Playing a guitar Lead to a XFullDimished7 is not a problem for me.

I MUST have a "busy" drummer who is not afraid of large cymbals. Progressive Jazz is fine, as is Alternative, Prog Rock, Latin sounding (Santana/Chick Corea)
