I love old school heavy metal, thrash metal and early death metal. Mainly the styles of the 80s and early 90s. That's what I prefer. Musically that is, I know I don't necessarily have the image. I have been playing guitar for many years. I have been in bands when I was much younger, but they didn't last. I still play and record my own music for fun and I play guitar covers on youtube. Also, I just turned 40 (I know I still look like I am 30) I prefer to play with musicians as close to my age as possible. I have a full time job and other obligations that comes with being an adult, so this may limit my availability. Once a week or maybe twice a week of practice could work.

Right now, I mainly play my Jackson and Ibanez (guitars). My typical amps of choice are Line6, although I could afford to get other/better equipment if need be. I would get better gear if I were to join or form a band.
