I'm a guitarist with nearly 20 years experience looking to get back into the band thing, hoping to find an established band within the city looking for a guitarist.

My style is prog rock/metal in the vein of Dream Theater, Haken, Pain of Salvation, Native Construct, etc. Melody-driven, traditional song structure (in the context of prog; long tunes, etc) kind of stuff. I like djent as an item in the toolbox for songwriting, but I'm not into it enough to do it exclusively as the band's go-to sound (I hate to even have to write that, but so many conflate djent with prog these days that I have to specify).

I have 4 tunes to share to showcase my ability and general mindset for where I come from with writing music:

I also have a couple videos of me playing live and 1 of me doing a rough cover of a Haken song:

I know this stuff is super niche, but I'm putting this out there in the hopes of finding like-minded people who could use a(nother?) guitarist.

Feel free to hit me up in a message to chat more.

Cheers,
Ben
