Lead, Rhythm, or Bass Guitar available - creative, reliable, solid (Clifton Park)

Lead, rhythm, or bass guitarist available. I can offer over 35 years of playing experience (I'm 46), a professional attitude, an open mind, broad tastes, reliable equipment, enthusiasm, and a good sense of humor.

I have decades of experience gigging and recording in all kinds of genres and bands, and I'm looking for something fun and creative, with momentum and as little drama/BS as possible, in the Capital District. I'd like to join a group that is committed to practicing, performing, and attaining a modicum of success, at least locally. I have performed professionally with the New York Players, Soul Session, and TV Doctors, along with others, and have performed on stages all over the area since relocating here several years ago from Boston.

I'm ideally looking to join up up with a band that ALREADY HAS MATERIAL AND GIGS LINED UP, whether it's an original band or a (working) cover band. At the moment I'm really interested in joining a group that already has their act together and has some momentum behind them, and just needs a versatile guitar player to round out the band.
