ABOUT

I have been playing guitar for a little over 10 years, initially acoustic and for the last 6 electric. I took piano lessons at school and more recently have been practicing keyboards again. On guitar I am mostly self taught, probably around RockSchool Grade 5. Since October 2017 I have playing in a weekly large group led by rock music teachers and since December 2018 also in a smaller group.

Influences

I love most kinds of rock: prog, classic and more modern stuff (Kings of Leon, Killers, etc) as well as more rocky pop. I want to play songs people enjoy listening to and I am more interested in playing a good song well than wigging out on a self-indulgent guitar solo. I like playing simple leads, rhythm or keyboards so can be quite a flexible band member.
