I'm an Australian guitarist. I have a jazz degree but was playing rock and metal long before I did that. I got out of the metal scene a few years back but 2 years ago started listening to the current generation of Metal bands and got back into it. I really like bands like Jinjer, New years Day, as well as the older bands such as Godsmack and Prog bands such as Tesseract and Periphery, I love the classics like Deep Purple and Sabbath but that's just scratching the surface - I like a lot of others. I've had a varied music career including large and small Jazz bands, country rock, playing percussion in orchestra, marching band snare drum, bagpipes. But most of my music career has been hard rock covers and several original bands in various genres like hard rock, fusion, pop and metal. I am currently doing a Music Masters Research degree in Prog Metal Composition. Look forward to some quality interactions.
