ABOUT

(to avoid bandmix premium, my email is drayridley at gee mail dot com)

I have been playing guitar for 9 years, drums seriously for about 5 years, and singing all my life. I've been playing with different low level bands as long as I've been playing guitar, so I've got quite a bit of experience playing and cooperating with others. I've always been a leader in those bands playing lead guitar and singing or rhythm guitar and backups, but always the main songwriter and driving force during practices.

MY STRENGTHS: I have a good sense of rhythm, can fill in for missing parts in a song, and will never overplay. I pickup new things quick and have a good ear. I like to experiment with sounds and am always trying to find the right tone for a song. I also have good stamina, and play with passion without being super sloppy.

MY WEAKNESSES: I am not a very technical musician. I can keep a solid beat while drumming, but I tend to fumble trying something new. I've never taken vocal lessons and my range is not as high as I'd like but is still good I think.

Influences

I love experimental music in general. Indie rock, post rock, electronic, shoegaze, IDM, ambient, etc. I've never met anyone who wants to do really artsy stuff so I'm itching to do that, but I'm always down to play some simple rock or punk. Anyway I can contribute, I'd love to.
