ABOUT

I've been musically interested for my entire life, though I lacked confidence in my younger years and my parents couldn't afford formal lessons, so I never really developed much skill on an instrument, though I've owned and played both electric and acoustic 6 strings at various times in my life.

I'm currently teaching my self more seriously, and have been for the past 6-9 months. I'd like to meet some other musically minded people and start jamming and learning what I can. I've also always been a singer. I have a keen ear and I'm a quick study, but most importantly I am not afraid to dedicate to proper practice.

I'm very dedicated to learning, and although I'm probably not ready to gig yet, I definitely aspire to a singer / songwriter type role. I have a strong sense of rhythm and am really good with melodies. I'd like to think that I'm a dynamic player, but really I still have a lot of work to go to get my technique correct and automatic. Once I get a piece down, I find it really straightforward to articulate it well.

Hope to hear from some people and make some friends.

All the best,

Chris

Can rent for gigs or upgrade gear if we get that far. I'm quite talented at repairs and upgrades, so my instruments are fine for me to learn on, they play well and have some small upgrades.
