I am a guitarist of 21 years specializing mostly in metal. I have extensive live, studio, and touring experience and I'm not interested in "making it". Been there... done that. Looking for like minded musicians of all styles to colaborate with and record.
I am also the bassist and sometimes guitarist for Santa Barbara based acoustic rock band "The Wooden Box Brothers". ./thewoodenboxbrothers
