Lead and finger-style guitarist, acoustic and electric. Vintage tone/gear, slick and tasty, double on lap steel, keys, bass or mando. Smart, experienced musician. Can play bass or lead all night, or switch around. I can sing lead or harmony and I have a 40 song repertoire I do solo, but I do not require a band I join do my songs. I am pretty old, so if you care at all about age, walk on now.
I am only interested in playing in a band I believe is great or can become great, playing music I would listen to even if it were somebody else's. I not a band whore or club hound, usually I am all in or all out.
I am retired and don't need to pay all my bills with music, as I often have, and I have time to work on spec in a true band effort. Not looking for one with a band name and a patina of democracy, but in which all the power, glory and the artistic and hiring authority is vested in one guy who calls all the tunes without paying the piper, and the other members come and go. Folks like that need to hire me, just as I hire musicians, do the booking and and put my name on my gigs. I am looking for a true band.
Lastly, I am picky, especially on spec. I only want to play with people whose skills and practices are thoroughly professional regardless of the dough.
