SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a deeply committed electric guitarist who is looking for a drama free group that is comprised of members who place music in a high priority level of their lives. Weak excuses to skip practice are not acceptable. Not doing homework is just as bad.

Looking for........

1. Band of mature musicians who strive for the elusive "Drama Free" band. I avoid the interpersonally-unaware over-bearing "I have to become a star" musicians.

2. Band which understands the value of proper volume balancing and a suitable space in practice sessions not just performance. The bare wall basement echo-chamber practice-space where musicians stand 4 feet from an un-shielded drummer is a non-starter.

3. A band with a repertoire with some diverse tastes but tending to harder Classic Rock like the songs listed below are my preference:

Some examples are......
1. Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers
2. Money for Nothing
3. Mississippi Queen
4. We're an American Band
5. Walk This Way
6. Hot Blooded
7. Stranglehold
8. Mother Freedom
9. Great White Buffalo
10. Double Vision

If this criteria fits your band, then I am a capable Lead guitarist looking for established band. I do not need to "get my way" in band decisions, but I will weigh in on band decisions when asked. I just need a drama free performing band that wants a dedicated guitarist who is not some pre-Madonna.

Do not be fooled by the original music on this page as I am a very accomplished cover-tune artist.
