ABOUT

Self-taught guitar player since age 11, but decided to pursue drumming over the last few years (self taught and lessons). I play out at a local bar monthly as a drummer with a steady group of other musicians, just for fun. However, i'd like to be able to play more often and with more people, and i'd like to drum to other styles of music, as my friends tend to play mostly Southern rock and folky style Classic Rock (ie. Greatful Dead, The Band, Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc).
I've done some of my own home recording projects and i can sing lead/background vocals as well.

Looking mostly to jam and have fun on a regular basis, with perhaps an occasional gig. Not looking to make money from gigging either...playing is enjoyment enough.
