Been playing music 25+ years and guitar 20+. Acoustic guitar is my fave, but I also enjoy playing electric. Studied classical guitar for 2 years at Otterbein University. I have finished original material which is mostly on acoustic guitar, with my vocal harmonies.
Have written songs & jammed for years with my buddy Joe, but he's really busy a lot of the time & I also want to branch out.
I'm open to performing almost all types of music, original or covers, but I prefer rock & alternative. I love 90's alternative!
I feel the reason I never joined a lasting band is because I never met the right people that match what I consider my (I think) eclectic tastes. I'm hoping to finally change that now & get committed to doing what I love. Getting paid for it is even better!
About me: I'm interested in philosophy & science -particularly astronomy- & interesting factoids about pretty much anything. Worked as a sleep technologist for 11 years (yes, I watched people sleep for money). I love learning, & I think it'd be cool to make some music/lyrics related to any/all of the above (but not required). I also love movies & games, & am a pretty regular reader. Never had kids, no pets.
I have a couple cover videos on (for some reason I can't directly type you-of-the-tube) the site literally everyone watches. If interested, you can search 'pateralus9'.
You can call, text, message through the site, whatever. Wow this is long. Thanks for your time!

Hard jam loop 1
Hard jam loop 1 Year: 2017 Album: N/A Genre: Rock
This is just a silly little loops jam I did shortly after I got my new electric guitar early last year. My original songs that are complete are acoustic-based, but I want people to know in down for many different styles, including hard rock. So here you go!
Acoustic jam w/lead
Acoustic jam w/lead Year: 2014 Album: N/A Genre: Acoustic
This is another jam I recorded and then improvise the solo, which is why the lead doesn't sound tight or polished. Recorded using Adobe Audition for PC with the Blue Snowball microphone.
Acoustic jam, me on lead
Acoustic jam, me on lead Album: N/A Genre: Acoustic
A jam I did with my buddy Joe a couple years ago. I'm on lead, Joe on rhythm. Not a great example as this as just a jam, but something more upbeat.
