Guitarist looking to join or start an original project. Down to try any style. Acoustic, electric, or even bass guitar. I like a whole host of music (see below) and could see myself playing/writing/collaborating in/for any one or a combination of those types bands/groups. If you like any of the types of bands I like, hit me up. I have little to no interest in playing covers, unless this was to be a tribute band. I play & teach professionally already, so I'm not terribly interested in putting in the work establishing a group for the sole purpose of making money. Mostly looking to network and find like-minded musicians who don't completely suck, with the purpose of creating music of substance; recording and playing out live occasionally. I'm usually very busy, and live in town (Moiliili area), but for the right enterprise, I will make the time.
*I am most typically free weekday afternoons (2pm+) and/or evenings (5pm+) to meet/audition/rehearse/gig.
Genres I like:
Heavy Metal (...Iron Maiden, Dio)
Power Metal (...Kamelot, Edguy)
Symphonic Metal (...Nightwish, Epica)
Melodic Hardcore (...Thrice, Rise Against)
Thrash Metal (...Metallica, Megadeth)
Melodic Death Metal (...In Flames, Children of Bodom)
Pop Punk (...Blink-182, Paramore)
Jazz Fusion (...Guthrie Govan, Greg Howe)
Rap Metal (...Rage Against the Machine, Linkin Park)
Electronic (...Daft Punk, Ratatat)
