ABOUT

I am a 17 year old drummer and guitarist looking to join a moderately committed local rock band.

I have been playing guitar for two and a half years, leaning more towards rhythm than lead, and have been playing the drums for several months; I'm no Bonham on drums but I can play relatively simple rock beats and can learn more complex stuff if needs be. I am an excellent rhythm guitarist with a love of hard rock and heavy metal music, especially from the 70's and 80's (my favourite band is AC/DC). Nothing would bring me more joy than to play in a band with a group of likewise minded individuals and make killer music.

I know a fair amount of theory and I have written and can write songs on drums, guitar and bass, but I'm happy playing covers only. Whatever the band wants :)

I have never played a gig before but I have practised in a full band and would be willing to put in the effort to practise with a band at the weekend and weekday evenings.
