ABOUT

Lead Guitarist/Vocalist - solid, dependable. Currently looking for a project near me. I demand perfection from myself. If you're good, I will push you also, it can be symbiotic. I respect constructive criticism because it can make the band sound better. I will admit when I am wrong. I'm worth getting involved with because I have an interesting style and I can play very well. I also have a better than average voice. I like harmonies and I think the audience focuses on vocals. I am not opposed to a band having multiple lead singers, especially if they know how to harmonize when they are not covering the lead position. I celebrate the accomplishments of the band. This is a hobby for me, not a source of income, however I do not like clubs and bars who hire bands exploiting musicians' talent for their financial gains. I believe socialization is a big part of the band. I do have a great sense of humor and love to goof around, especially on stage. I'm very serious about making things sound good but if we are not having fun, then it isn't worth the effort. I love playing challenging cover music and getting it right with the band. I have expert equipment and I know how to use it, my guitar sound is something I spend a lot of time getting right.

Late 70's through 80's rock is my favorite, but I am versatile, let's play a wide range of stuff. No, I cannot play like Eddie Van Halen nor Joe Satriani, but I certainly like them!
