More in Depth:

I've been playing guitar for almost two years now and can consider myself good at writing/composing riffs. I currently have two bands (both in the genre of Black Metal), Held By The Mighty & Distorder. I can play both acoustic and electric guitar. I have been interested in either starting a band (mostly because I cannot play drums, and neither do I own a bass) or participate in as a session musician in a project. In terms of vocals, I mostly do screaming/harsh vocals. I can perform fry vocals (highs, lows, mids, tunnel throat) as well as false chord screaming (highs, lows, mids, gutterals, tunnel throat). I can also do whistle register scream, as well a little bit of singing (I've been working on them here and there, still need plenty of more practice and confidence). I have been practicing my harsh vocals for just about two to three years now and can consistently keep my voice in tact for a lengthy period of time without causing any major damage to my vocal chords. As for my knowledge in music, I am still continuing to learn about guitar but I do not know much music theory.

As for my experience...

I have been working on writing/composing for my Held By The Mighty project. I have also released a demo ("Risen From Hell") for my Distorder project. Both of these projects are within the genre of Black Metal. I have several other demo recordings and ideas for music projects and songs that I've been working on for almost as long as I've been playing guitar.
