I just moved to the Elmhurst area after living on the West coast for a while. I just opened this bandmix account after stumbling on it upon the net. If you want to contact me, then just email directly at jwsouthland. I have a free bandmix account, so it blocks out the rest of my email. It's a account. I don't know too many people here yet except family members, but I do know how to party and play music. I'm looking for a drummer and a bassist right now, just to see what musical direction our energy and chemistry takes us. I am extremely creative and have no musical boundaries, so I like to play more than the genres listed here, but it only allows you to choose 3. My style in playing is just as eclectic as the style I listen to. I take a little bit of something from all types of music, as long as it's real. Most of my lead guitar work is blues, or bluesy rock. I also play minor harmonic hard rock leads, which go well with a lot of types of music as well. I guess if I had to put playing styles in order of enjoyment, it would go something like this:

1.experimental rock
2.blues/blues rock
3.classic rock
4.modern hard rock/metal(not thrash)

As I said before, I'm not limited to these, and I like playing jam-type music and seeing where the musicians I'm playing with take me. I'm not flaky or egotistical, and I don't try to steal the show. I like complimenting the music with a guitar, not letting the guitar take the place of my dick. My level of commitment would depend on how well we play and get along.
