I've been playing guitar for ten years and can play a wide variety of styles such as flamenco, folk, blues and most types of rock. I prefer fingerpicking but will use a plectrum if I need to and can learn most songs within half an hour of first playing them unless it is pretty complicated, in which case it may take a day or longer for me to nail. I have played gigs before and am in a small Ceilidh band. This month I am playing bass guitar with The Condiments whilst their normal bassist is otherwise indisposed. I like listening to heaps of different bands and artists from different genres: Nick Drake, Eric Clapton, Fairground Attraction, Throwing Muses, Tunng, Fairport Convention, Bodega, Richard Thompson, The Shins, The Klaxons, CSS, Alabama 3, Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix (but of course), The Spinto Band, Muse, Nina Simone, Kasabian, Nick Cave, Less Than Jake, Maximo Park, Hard Fi, The Aliens, THe BEta Band, REM, Average White Band, Chicago, Blur, Belle & Sebastian, The White Stripes, Raconteurs, RHCP, THe Jam, Stone Roses, THe Stranglers, Little Man Tate, Los Lobos, Elvis Costello, CSN, Gogol Bordello, Rodriguo y Gabriela, THe Pogues, Sons and Daughters and many more. So if you want to start a band or are looking for a guitarist to join your band even for a one-off then just wing me an e-mail and we can work things out.
