Hey, Sam here, I'm an experienced guitarist specialising in all sorts of genres, mainly rocky blues and jazzy kinds of things (see influences) but am able to play metal/punk quite well. I am most influenced by newer blues/jazz/rock artists like Joe Bonamassa as well as SRV, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Jeff Healey, Jeff Beck etc but also listen to anything between Robert Johnson to Eric Clapton. I have been in bands before and know how to work well with other experienced musicians. I'm based in Eastbourne, East Sussex but am willing to travel as far as Brighton due to travel restrictions.
As a guitarist I am very adaptable to the varying kinds of ska, punk and hardcore and can easily combine them in the styles of my influences. I am also a very dedicated musician with a true passion for the genres above. - Cheers Sam Geals

Blues - I am very much into my Blues music but am currently taking measures to become a better solo guitarist. At the moment I am more that proficient in playing rhythm blues as it has been a passion of mine since I was very young. I would like to be in a Blues band that had similar experience to me but not of professional standards. I am very up for jamming if there is no seriousness about being in a gigging band.
Blues/Rock - REM, Creed, Joe Bonamassa, Miles Davis, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Jeff Beck, Jeff Healey, Rory Gallagher,Seasick Steve, Ry Cooder, Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stereophonics, U2, Smashing Pumpkins as well as anything to be honest. I like to listen to anything and everything especially Blues/Jazz/Ska/Rock etc
