ABOUT

I have played quite a few small open mic nights in spennymoor and durham. I have played many gigs around the Stockton, middles-borough and Newcastle area. I am a lead guitarist foremost but i have spent allot of time mastering my theory on the keyboard and have become reasonably adept at it. i have no official grades in music or any instruments however i am quite happy to show anyone what i do know by interview. I would say i am about grade 7/8 on the guitar and about grade 6/7 in music theory. I am capable of playing rhythm guitar, drums and harmonica to a reasonable standard (around grade 5ish) however they are not my main instrument so i would prefer to play lead guitar but i am not all that fussy. My most trained musical skill is without question improvisation. Second from that is my ability to be able to find matching scales quickly from any music in any key. I have alot of experience playing with a rhythm guitarist who i taught myself. tis obvious i love music and am looking to make my living from it, if anyone thinks they could use me please contact me on 07807282454.
