I have been playing guitar on and off for quite sometime now , I was into thrash metal earlier , bands like Metallica , Iron Maiden , Pantera , Slayer etc. But like most players my taste have evolved and now I am more into bands like -
Eluveitie , children of bodom , sylosis , Amon Amarth , iced earth , insomnium , in flames , Ensiferum , Wintersun , Parasite inc., Suidakra , blackguard etc. I am huge fan of the Scandinavian metal bands and folk metal bands from around the world .

I play a 6 string electric guitar tuned to DGCFAD , I have a good command over rhythm and practicing 4-5 days a week to get good with the soloing as well..

I am looking to meet like minded people with positive attitude to start a new project / band or just jam and see how things go on.. I am very friendly and easy to get along.. No flakes no drama !!

If you are looking for a Lead guitarist in a heavy metal band then I am Not your guy since I am not very good at shredding and doing the crazy sweeps yet ( I sure am practicing a lot ) But if you got a lead guitarist already and looking for a second guitarist then I can be very useful and I can handle riffs , fills and small solos , pinches, dive bombs and squeals while the lead guitarist is doing his thing..

If I sound ok to you and you have any questions You can email me or text me on 408-643-9468 or shoot an email to classicshades . I know it's quite hard to find the right metal players around but still giving this a shot.. You never know
