First off I'm currently in a band but as time goes on the rest of the group is putting in less effort and I'm looking for something I can dedicate that spare time to. I've been playing for about 8 years, played a few gigs. I've got gig worthy gear so it'll keep up with a whole band and then some. I draw influence from everyone from B.B. King to Jerry Cantrell to Satch and back again. I'm by no means the best and will never claim to be but I can come up with riffs/parts that fit what we're doing without going overboard. I believe in subtlety in music so yes, sometimes less is more. I live near Rockford, I'm willing to travel to practice as long as it's reasonable. Music is my life and right now it seems like it's all at a stand still and it's driving me nuts.
