What level guitarist are you? (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert)

While I've played since I was in high school, intermediate best fits my skill level. I can carry a rhythm pretty reliably. Soloing is pretty hit and miss for me, but I love to try it if someone else is willing to take the rhythm.

What styles of music would you like to play? (Rock, Blues, Singer/Songwriter, Jazz, etc.)

Rock, folk, country, blues, singer/songwriter. I have a couple of my own tunes I've written and am developing and would love to connect with others to collaborate with and hone my writing skills.

Who is your biggest guitar influence and why?

Yikes! That's a tough one. I'd have to say Elliott Smith best exemplifies my taste though I would not say I try and emulate his style as he's so complex. Maybe something more simple and soulful like The Decemberists.

Introduction

Hey all! Looking to connect with others that share my passion of making music. I play a decent rhythm guitar, ukulele, and love to sing. Being new to town, I'm also looking to make some friends. Let's get together and share some music.
