SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Been a guitarist for 14-15 years. Mostly a Metal guitarist but also part of a Post-Alt Rock band and have a solo project where I compose and produce my own music. Also a sucker for pop-punk so you can find me at The Key Club on Tuesday nights.
Originally from Bangalore, India and studying Music Management at the Uni of Leeds.

I'm game for studio sessions, jams and I'll jump the fu*k around with you guys on stage.

EQUIPMENT

Due to overseas baggage restrictions, I couldn't carry any of my gear but here's what I've got with me:

Schecter Damien Elite 6 FR (Currently on standard E)
Boss NS-2 (Noise suppressor)

Back at home, the rest of my gear I use:
Boss ME 70 Processor
Line 6 POD HD 500

I record guitars on Logic X using JST Toneforge Jason Richardson tones if that's any help (if we can hook up digital tones).
