SEEKING

Band to Join, Drums, Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist.

ABOUT

Seasoned guitar player, musician, composer, band leader, and guitar instructor looking forward to meet -initially- a bass player and a drummer to form an all original project heavily influenced by prog rock, hard rock, jazz/rock-fusion, and funk elements but not limited to. Must be able to feel at home playing in odd time signatures. Also looking for a vocalist/lyricist and another guitar player to switch rhythm/lead roles. Should be able to rehearse at least twice a week... music is fun but sorta difficult! Just please... no strong egos around and no heavy substance abusers.

P.S.1: The uploaded music has nothing to do with the songs/concept I have in the can for this project, but would give you an idea of my playing and musicianship level. Make sure to check a few of them as they are radically different from one another in style, time signatures, and instrumentation (all other instruments were recorded using guitar synthesizer).

P.S.2: Will start teaching guitar, music theory & composition again by the end of July 2010!

P.S.3: Would also like to join a working rock band (originals or covers) in need of a rhythm/lead guitar player who thinks n play out of the box, inventive and unconventional.
