ABOUT

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.

Influences

I initially taught myself to play by learning Satriani, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Skid Row and various other stuff that was in guitar magazines circa 1991. Ever since then I've been consciously avoiding emulating anyone in particular and developing my own style... with little success.
