ABOUT

Looking for a guitarist to create a dirt blues band - bluesy jammy ORIGINALS, distorted slide, gritty spacious tunes; some tunes really slow or others faster, mainly minor keys.

Think:
- 1930's delta blues (Son Sims Four, Muddy Waters, Son House)
- late 60's British blues (Yardbirds, Cream, Led Zep)
- bluesy Hendrix (Red House, Hear My Train a Comin', Bleeding Heart, If 6 was 9)
- bluesy Gary Clark Jr. (When My Train Pulls in)
- The Cruel Sea (This is Not the Way Home, Too fast for Me)

Don't think: BB King, Buddy Guy etc

I am comparatively new to the bass - I can hold a good groove, bass walk, I know my music theory etc etc. but I don't have soloing chops.

In my last band, in a period of 16 months, I built it from nothing to a position of getting paid gigs playing only originals using only musicians I have never met.
