Band to Join.


Very experienced guitarist. Trained in both classical and jazz. Good understanding of music theory with previous writing, arranging and studio experience.

Looking for a new project, having just finished a long stint in Hertfordshire pub covers band Redhead. Prior to that Stop and Search and the mighty Kings of Langley.

I can do all the fancy lead stuff but sometimes it's nice to just sit in the pocket and drive the band along.

Good guitar tech - wiring and switching a speciality.. I'm a chartered engineer in real life.
