ABOUT

Hello,

I am a 32-year-old lead guitarist, and I just moved to the Scottsbluff area. I would like to join a rock/hard rock/metal cover band as the lead guitarist, or start such a band (I would need a singer, bassist, and drummer-- I can handle both lead and rhythm guitar duties, but if there is a rhythm guitarist out there, that'd be cool too), and play out, but for FUN (not as a job). I am a working professional with a good career; music is my biggest passion after family/friends/career/etc. I would like to be in a band with like-minded people, as I've found from the past that it makes it hard for me to be in a band where I'm doing it just for the love and fun of music, and the others are doing it as a source of income (I'm not saying we'll play for free, but just that money shouldn't be a reason anyone is in the band-- the reason should be just a love of music). I've been playing since I was 14, have been in bands since around then and have played many gigs, have professional gear, and am drug and drama-free. I love and prefer to play live, and love connecting with people through music.

I am mainly into 90's and 2000's rock, hard rock, and metal. I would love to play songs by bands such as these (and have done so in the past, so I already know quite a few by these bands; also, please see end of post for a more comprehensive list of songs I would love to play):
Collective Soul (my favorite), Metallica, Alice in Chains, Godsmack, Disturbed, Black Label Society, Chevelle, Default, Fuel, Candlebox, Gin Blossoms, Guns n' Roses, U2, Mudvayne, Slipknot, Static-X, Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins, Led Zeppelin, Live, Nickelback, The Offspring, Pantera, Pearl Jam, Rob Zombie, Stone Temple Pilots, The Tea Party, (if you actually know who that is, then we definitely need to talk!), Tonic, Tool, Velvet Revolver, etc.

Basically, I like music that is heavy but melodic, with a good groove and lots of emotion.

Let me know if you're interested!

Thanks.
