I'm a lead guitarist, I've just turned 40 :( and have been playing since I was about 11 years old. I have lots of live experience although not done a gig for a good few years. Also, have recording studio experience.
I'd love to do a cover band on the more rock side of things but not the usual covers you see in all the other bands out there. If this sounds like you then feel free to give me an email: derekjohnston1979@ g mail dot com
Thanks for looking!

Christina Perri: A Thousand Years (Instrumental Guitar Cover)
Christina Perri: A Thousand Years (Instrumental Guitar Cover)See me perform this track: https://youtu.be/sfhCJG_etjQ An instrumental guitar cover of Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years". Not normally the sort of thing I'd play but I kinda like it for some reason even though it's from that shit Twilight film. Recorded using my Fender Roadhouse Deluxe Strat into my EVH 5150 III 2x12 combo - rivera mini rockrec - forcusrite scarlett 2i2 - logic pro. Dirt channels used impulse responses to simulate a mic'd guitar cab in Logic with MixIR2. Acoustic tracks were direct into a Tomsline AC-Stage AAC-3 Acoustic Simulator pedal then into the 2i2. Not too bad ... just wish I was better at mixing :)
