Creative Musicians (Silver Springs - can commute to Reno)

I am looking for some musicians. I play guitar well and can sing, I also can play some keyboards. By nature, I am a "square peg in a round hole" / non-conformist; I do my own thing.

I read a lot of posts and see that most people have a preconceived notion of what they want to sound like and do; maybe that's not a bad thing, but it isn't me. I am certainly a creative personality. If I try to emulate some other sound or try to play what someone else wants me to play I kind of start going nuts, that kind of stuff doesn't work for me.

I know a lot those reading this may want to hear sound samples, but that leads back to the previous paragraph. It seems that most people who want to hear something first are trying to see if I fit their preconceived idea of what they're wanting to sound like; I promise that I don't fit that. I can tell you that I've been playing long enough that I can "hang", that I play a lot of stuff on the electric as well as acoustic guitars, and that I tend to not play "hard-core" metal. I usually just feel my way through things, and there can be some trial and error. Not everything I write is good, but I've written quite a few things that ARE really good.

Real creative endeavors are always outside of the lines and inherently risky, and this one will be no exception. This means that you will have to take a risk just like I will.

If I haven't frightened you away, if you're willing to give it enough time to work our way into something good, and not call it quits if we have a bad practice (because there will be some bad practices and gigs), maybe you should message me.
