Looking for shredders/riff meisters. I like Vai, Gilbert, Malmsteen, Petrucci, Gambale, Hetfield, Hammett, Skolnick, Stetina, Vinnie Moore, and anyone who has drive and is passionate about what they do. Also some old school metal/thrash riffage would be cool too.
Having said that, I also like simple ideas and well articulated parts. I like songs, instrumentals, and solos. More than cramming 9 riffs together and calling it done. I would like to have rehearsed pieces to perform in public, with an emphasis on melody. Think Bill and Ted with focus and direction!
some guidelines and ideas...
*will learn specific licks (from books, photocopies, etc) to practice together.
*wants to compose, record, distribute, and perform live, quality original music.
*Interested in guitar tricks (tapping, whammy bar, pick scratches, harmonics)
*Interested in trading solos/improvisation/harmonies
*has experience with a metronome
*Standard Tuned (E A D G B E) (A=440hz)
*Punctual, ready to play, good work ethic, 3-4 times a month, 2-4 hour sessions
*considers music more than a hobby
*has a clear vision beyond instant gratification
*believes that luck/success is a result of preparation meets opportunity
*looking to perform live ASAP
