ABOUT

I'm in western burbs of Kane County.
jam my place or yours
I am at g male ... l.a.jimmi
also at mspace / laj666

Believe it or not, I have done orginal material for so long, that I don't have much cover material right now.
I might enjoy doing doing a little of that in the right situation. UPDATE OCT 2009: I'm starting to learn & re-learn some cover tunes

I'd like to find a good singer who can write lyrics as well as another guitar player. I'm open to taking the rhythm parts or switching between rhythm / lead.

My tunes range from melodic progressive rock to some of the chunka metal, again with my own style. I was trained classically, and learned to rock totally by ear and sweat, and playing the records til they turned WHITE...!!! LOL

I can respect and listen to some of this, but its not really my thing; I wouldnt enjoy playing it.
