Hi There, I want to put together/join band writing and recording original material with view to gigging circuit and recording sessions for album later this year.
I am a guitarist specialising in rock styles (see influences below). I also play bass and keyboard as second instrument.
I am gigging regularly with an established classic rock cover band and have over ten years of experience so im very committed. I am an easygoing guy with lots of creative ideas, so expect a team player who plays for the band, not an egomaniac.
Check out www.myspace/marcusguitarsolo for tracks i"ve written, recorded and performed in my home studio. This will give you an idea of some of my playing styles & influences.
Interested? contact me to arrange audition/jam:
