ABOUT

18 year old lad, Been playing guitar for about 9 years, equally comfortably on lead/rhythm but prefer lead.

At Sheff Hallam.

Want to join/form an indie/rock/britpop group. Initially to have a bit of fun doing covers & originals and make money gigging but eventually to become serious.

I've got a fair few tunes I've written over the last few years but I need a band to do owt with them.

EQUIPMENT

'08 Gibson Les Paul Traditional

Ovation CS257 semi-Acoustic

Have some generic Marshall solid state combo, having a great big fcuk off Marshall 1959HW/JCM800 tube stack is a bit impractical when you live in Uni halls but I've saving up for one for next year/as soon as practical.
