ABOUT

Guitar Teacher by day at small family owned music store in Plano (Texas Music Lab) so off by either 8 in beginning of week or 6 on weekends and with no wife/kids Im pretty flexible schedule wise and owner is nice enough to let me use store even after hours or on sun/mon when closed as rehearse space anytime when not open for business. My own best case scenario would be original band/ content like my favorite jam style band Umphreys not so cover or sound like them but just the fact they allow themselves the freedom to do a reggae, blues, jam/improv, jazz, latin rock etc etc plus covers and mashups they're unrestricted style and creatively but has to be done right which brings me to the awkward part where i say "i consider myself very easy going, enjoy working collectivley all opinions/ critisicm equal weight and leave ego out of it so the song is good not just one person wanting to stand out" but always sounds corny so I won't mention it. Other then that i have time to gig so I'd consider most every scenario from just playing guitar for female vocalist whether country blues R&B whatever, hired gun if bands in a tough spot or even join established band or cover band if everything makes sense for both sides so if any of that babble is relevant to helping your situation just reach out and go from there
