Hey everybody,

My name is Todd, I'm 17, from the LA area, and I'm looking to start a jam band. The Dead are my primary influence (hence the reason for my posting here), but I love all jam bands, including Phish, Umphrey's McGee, and Moe (just to name a few). I like many other genres of music as well, including jazz (MMW, anyone?), blues, bluegrass, and reggae.

I'm a (lead) guitarist. I've been playing for over two and a half years now, but I've gotten pretty good in that time, if I do say so myself. I'm about two weeks away from taking delivery of a custom-made, $5000 custom guitar, nearly identical to Jerry's "Tiger" (but with some custom inlays). I am a decent singer but by no means special, so if you have vocal ability as well as instrumental ability, that's a big plus.

Let me know! Take it easy y'all.

Todd
