SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Other.
Hello to all you fellow musicians on B.M.!
My name is Dal and I am 48 years old and looking to either join an established band or form one with like-minded musos! lol
I have been playing guitar (on and off) for about 20+ years but more frequent in the past 5 years where I was gigging and recording with the last band I was involved with. I am mainly a rhythm guitarist but can dabble with some lead work too. (Please note that I am no Steve Vai/ Joe Satriani or even Kirk Hamster either)I am not scared to have a go...but know my limits. I am currently playing in Drop C tuning but am adaptable.
I have my own transport, sense of humour and professional gear. I am very serious about my music and love nothing more than banging out some tunes at stupid volumes down the studio with fellow musicians.
I am looking to get gigging/writing and recording again with an established band who have a serious agenda (but also know how to have fun and chill too) lol
I am not really interested in just jamming, being in a covers band or passing the time as a hobby etc.
I am based in the Essex area and would ideally like to stay local if possible but can travel up to a sensible distance...(obviously I would prefer spending more time IN the studio rather than travelling time TO the studio) I hope that makes sense?
So...if I sound like what you are after...please get in touch
