See those last three videos? They're on my personal YouTube channel. Just saying...
Guitarist who can play a bit of bass, a bit of mandolin and a little bit of banjo. I can also play a bit of keys but I don't actually possess a keyboard, so...
I was self taught to a pretty decent standard and then filled in the gaps with some proper education (up to dropping out of university level), so I can follow the chords on a lead sheet, but don't expect me to sight-read the dots.
I've been in a few bands over the years including one that won £1000 and a chance to record a demo in a residential studio in Henley in a Battle of The Bands competition in Blackpool. I don't know about you, but I'd say that's about as close to the big time as you can get without actually hitting the big time... or being remotely successful.
I'm looking to join a band with a bunch of people who take themselves just seriously enough to actually get stuff done and *play some gigs*. Probably people with one or two grey hairs, like myself...
Style-wise, I'm flexible. Just check out my music and videos - if you think I wouldn't be completely out of place in your band, that's good enough for me.

Gerald Year: 2015 Genre: Classic Rock
A little arrangement I put together based on a bass riff written by Stuart E. Robertson.
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Smells Like Teen Spirit Year: 2014 Genre: Country
A modern country reworking of Smells Like Teen Spirit. Or, at least, that was the plan. Turns out country isn't country without a southern drawl...
Our Velocity Year: 2012 Genre: Acoustic
Maximo Park. It's a good tune.
Metal Thing Year: 2005 Genre: Metal
God Only Knows
God Only Knows Year: 2009 Genre: Rock
More a reworking than a cover. Me: everything.
Dub Thing Year: 2009 Genre: Reggae
