Just fill a simple form and we'll know who is who ...

And some extra additional infos about you, your band, gigs, if you do any, would

Name: Chuck Hall.
Band name: I was the Mick Jagger wannabe in a Stones tribute band, Their Satanic Majesties, but am now bandless.
Age: 17.
Instrument (s) I'm best at vocals, have been playing rhythm guitar for half a year or so, and harmonica for the last couple of months.. I think I'm better at harp than guitar o_O. I'm also a fairly good songwriter and only getting better.
Genre: My main love has become folk/folk-rock/country-rock, but I've played/can play psychedelia (the majority of my writing is inspired by Syd Barrett and Brian Wilson), southern acoustic blues (think 20s/30s/40s.. Leadbelly, Blind Lemon Jefferson, etc etc), and just good ol' rock n roll.
Influences: Syd Barrett, Noel Gallagher, Brian Wilson, Brian Jones, Bob Dylan, Roky Erickson, Neil Young, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, George Harrison, Arthur Lee, Jimi Hendrix, Lennon/McCartney, Leadbelly, etc etc.
Country: USA.
County or region: Wisconsin right now, moving to the Dayton, Ohio area in early june (!), more specifically Miamisburg.
Gigs:We did 30 to 40 of them, more than half I was tripping on lsd... funnest sh!t ever. biggrin.gif Performing live is the love of my life.

additional info: I'd really like to start a folk-rock/psychedelic fusion jamband type thing, with a rhythm guitarist, lead, drummer, bassist, and my future roomate (who can write excellent folk songs) playing the other instruments, tambourines, morrocas, egg shakers, etc etc... The two guitarists (me being rhythm, obviously), playing harmonica, and maybe the bassist too. Everyone would sing, if they wanted to.... quite the dream eh?

And yes, I started out learning theory and obviously don't know that much, but am learning more and more each day.
