SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Very experienced guitarist. Trained in both classical and jazz. Good understanding of music theory with previous writing, arranging and studio experience.
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 and I've designed the ultimate Stratocaster wiring set up.

Now playing lead guitar in Berkhamsted's finest pop/rock covers band Redhead but always looking for a challenge.

Just interested in getting together and playing a few gigs or a project - no tours says the wife... blues/rock/fusion collective anyone?

All this stuff has been upgraded or modified to varying degrees. I like to tinker - do you need your guitar rewired?

Finally a motor car in which to transport all this paraphenalia...
