Band to Join.

ABOUT

REAL Guitar, looking for rocking band for fun and adventure. Prefer originals but covers okay too. Ten 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 in my 40s and am otherwise emotionally mature, well mannered, easy to get along with and a team player with a pretty good sense of humor. I don't do drugs, alcohol or psycho trips. I'm financially sound and work as an attorney with my own practice.

I've been playing in bands all my life and have written and recorded extensively. I am a BMI composer with numerous film music credits. I am currently playing the role of Brad Whitford in an Aerosmith tribute (which has toured worldwide) but still available for other worthwhile projects.

Influences

Roots rock like Stones, Sheryl Crow, The Black Crowes and modern Country like Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum. I'm a complete Beatles nut but my favorite band is Led Zeppelin. Other influences are Cheap Trick, STP, Tom Petty, Eagles, blah blah blah...

EQUIPMENT

I have a very large variety of Fender Telecasters, Gibson Les Pauls, Fender Stratocasters and Gretsch guitars.

I am an avid collector and restorer of vintage guitar amps and have a considerable collection of just about every well known guitar amp ever made, including Marshall, Fender (Tweeds, Blondes and Blackfaces) and Beatles era Voxes (AC30s, AC50, Defiant). I have the gear to achieve just about any classic guitar sound ever recorded.
