SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a 42-year old guitarist, classically trained as a violinist from age 4 to 18, a guitarist since age 12. I can be tasteful and I can be fast and I can be both at once.

I'm well versed in music theory, have a very strong ear/perfect pitch, understand modes, polytonal chords, all that fun stuff. I've been in jazz bands, reggae bands, thrash bands, punk bands, classic rock/southern rock bands... I love all guitar music and love to be a part of bands that incorporate guitar as part of their framework.

I check my ego at the door, and know when to NOT play and let others shine, as well as when it's my turn to crush it in the spotlight. I'm a team player, I don't flake or show up late, don't have substance problems, and try to be lighthearted while still being a consummate professional.
