Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar.

ABOUT

I'm a Stand-In lead guitarist with a growing list of cover tunes available for last minute support when your lead guitarist takes sick, quits, or just needs a night off.

Do not be fooled by the original music on this page as I am a very accomplished cover-tune artist. Some examples are......
ZZ Top: Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers
BTO: Taking Care of Business, Let It Ride
Pat Benatar: Hit Me with Your Best Shot
ACDC: You Shook Me All Night Long
Mountain: Missisippi
Ted Nugent: Great White Buffalo, Stranglehold
Cream: Sunshine of Your Love
Billy Idol: White Wedding

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.

If you've formed a band and need a lead guitarist (and a studio to record in) then consider me.

A little background: I got my first guitar when I was 14 from a Sears catalog. It was a cheap SG replica and it meant the world to me. I learned by copying what I saw others do. and never had any real lessons until I took some classical in college. I did not apply myself in school and dropped out to work. After many years of serious study (no, still no lessons) this is what I am doing. I hope you like it.
