Band to Join.


Hi, I've been playing the guitar for around three years now, and I love it! It's hard going at times as generally I play along to backing tracks and my own recordings, but I'm getting there and really enjoy playing : I'm no studio player yet.... however I'd love to find people in similar circumstances to jam with, leading to a few gigs - In the past I played keyboards in a band and played all over the country, doing some great supports for bands such as Dr Feelgood, The Pink Fairies, The Shamen, The Godfathers and many more... however I'm now 50, have two kids and can't yet commit myself to a frequently gigging band..... IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE..... a few links - https://soundcloud/rick-barks/the-highline
