SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a guitarist looking to join a local band that's into any combination of Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Blues, Country, Rockabilly, even some Motown as well. Rhythm guitar, dual-leads, lead guitar, etc. Could try backup vocals too, but it's not my forte ;-)

Influences

Major influences are/were Clapton, Tom Johnston (Doobies), Chuck Berry, SRV, Nokie Edwards (Ventures), Dicky Betts, Ed King and Steve Gaines (Skynyrd), and many other guitarists who rocked the 60s & 70s. I played lead guitar and did backup vocals in a few 70s era Charlottesville bands (about 50-60 gigs). Listened to a lot of 70s, 80s & 90s country, and jammed a bit while our young family took priority in my life. Influenced also by Brent Mason, Johnny Hiland, and Scotty Moore. Got back into playing regularly, at my church, and have played Christian Contemporary for over 15 years. I have more time now, and better chops!
