Hey, I'm John.

Played guitar for about 4 years and play a large amount of genre's of music but right now I'm really wanting to join an alternative rock band that's influenced by bands like; Foo Fighters, Lostprophets, Alexisonfire, Nirvana (I know it's grunge and not alt. rock but influences aren't always in the same genre), Breaking Benjamin and Papa Roach.
I know these are all different ends of alt. rock but influences can be from anywhere and helps keep things different.

I've been in bands before that are mainly metal but never really got into it enough to get into gigging as I got bored of the music played.

Anyway, I'm hoping to be playin with people of a similar age (from 16 to around 24 is preferred)

Well, thanks in advance

ah sounds like pretty good influences towards the grunge aspect there, and writing your own stuff is gonna be the best to go about gettin the right mix that you want too so it sounds cool

#12
no problem man.
I've been playin for around 4 years and I learnt pretty quickly myself. I'm a fairly decent lead player if that's the sort of thing you're lookin for like, but I have been tryin to get better at singin lately even though I don't see much of a change in the level I'm at right now. lol.
and I live in Fazakerely which is about a half hour bus ride from town but can get to near enough anywhere I need to really.
