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.

The sample track "Animal" was recently written and recorded for a soon to be released comedy film as the music over the ending credits. I co-wrote, engineered, arranged, produced and also played all the instruments on this track. The guitar solo section starts at 2:18 and is a Jimmy Page/Dancin Days inspired riff.
