Hi there. I'm Scott. I'm 18, and I've been playing guitar for 4 years (self-taught.) I really want to start or join a band, as that's the direction I want my life to take. I have little interest in anything else other than music.
Looking to form/join a band to play original songs (and maybe some covers.) I thinking having fun jamming with other musicians, writing, and making a little money gigging.
I write lyrics, but they always seem incomplete to me, so starting from scratch and writing with another person would be great.
I have my own (good quality) equipment. I don't have my own transport, but will be learning to drive at some point. I have to rely on lifts for now.
I love Garage Rock, Hard Rock, Psychedelia, Rock & Roll and Rhythm n Blues.
Ideally, I would want a Singer, a Drummer, a Bassist and maybe an extra guitarist.
Gender and age are unimportant. And I don't expect anyone to be a virtuoso (god knows I'm not) so don't worry about that. But being able to play to a decent standard would be ideal.
So if you're in a similar frame of mind, please get in touch so we can talk and see where it goes.
My influences include Jimi Hendrix, White Stripes, Cream, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, The Sonics, The Stooges, MC5, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Stone Roses, Yo La Tengo, Funkadelic, and a lot of blues musicians. Quite varied really. Not into metal.
I have a lot of Guitars, pedals and amps.
Current Favorites include an Epiphone Lucille B.B. King Signature Guitar, Silverface Fender Twin Reverb and a Digitech Screamin' Blues pedal.
