Band to Join.

ABOUT

REAL Guitar, looking for rocking band for fun and adventure. Prefer originals but covers okay too. Five minutes and you will know I have the chops and tones to bring your music to life. I play entirely by ear and can learn songs completely on the fly. I also know how to play the spaces and let the music breathe. I don't over play.

As further background, I am emotionally mature and a team player. I don't do drugs, alcohol or psycho trips. I'm financially very sound and work as an attorney with my own practice so I have a lot of flexibility to rehearse, play gigs and tour.

I've been playing in bands my entire life and have written and recorded extensively. I am a BMI composer with numerous film music credits. My last gig was playing the role of Brad Whitford in an Aerosmith tribute which toured worldwide.

Here's a snippet of me doing the Dream On solo at one of those gigs:

EQUIPMENT

I have many Fender, Gibson and Gretsch guitars. All pro gear. You know the drill.

I am also an avid collector of vintage guitar amps. My collection includes every iconic vintage guitar amp ever made, including 60s-70s era Marshall, Fender and Voxes. I have top-shelf pro gear and can achieve all the classic rock sounds ever recorded. Cheers!
