    You still looking for another guitarist? I would so do this, except I'm a year too young, don't have a second amp, and live a half-hour away.... I can attempt to help look for somebody, though, if you want.

    If you are still looking for a guitarist by next july, hit me up. I'll be 18 and able to drive then, and I've been looking for a band like this for a while.

    Still looking? I'd be very interested in hanging out with you guys and seeing if I fit in. I live in the loop on the corner of Lake and Wells. I don't have a car because parking is ridiculously expensive, but if I can get to where you are by CTA, Metra, or Amtrak I'm good to go. I've had 3 years of formal guitar training. 1 year blues guitar, and 2 years of classical training at my previous university. I do not use music theory when writing music but I'm pretty sure I could pick up on it again within a couple of months. I own a Marshall TSL and am currently searching for a left-handed seven string. Once I get pictures of this guys Ibanez I'll decide if I'm going to buy it or not. I've been playing guitar since I was 13. I'm currently 22, very open-minded and easy to get along with, and I've been dreaming of doing music for a living since I picked up the instrument. I've been writing music for my project, Ophiel, for a couple of years now. It's not exactly what you guys write, but if you would like to check out my technique visit NightTerrorSleeper27's Channel - YouTube and check out the Astral teaser videos. Take care.
