Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

I have been playing music since middle school. I'm not shredder status on guitar yet, but I can play solos with a lot of character and quirk. I am also halfway decent on bass. I tend to write bluesy/heavy riffs that are boneheaded and efficient, and songs that have unusual structure with abrupt changes while remaining succinct.

If I were to start a band, I would want a high energy, hoppy, quirky drummer who can groove well, a bassist who can keep up while adding their own flair, and a vocalist with sense of humor.

I would also be happy with setting my ideas aside and joining a band.
