    I'm in:

    Purge

    Me - Rhythm guitar/drums/vocals
    The other guy - Lead guitar/bass/vocals


    It's a bit different. We had a really hard time finding other people who were into making the kind of music we write so we just stopped looking. I play guitar and as a drummer, I'm good enough for what we need. My buddy Tom is a virtuoso at almost every instrument he touches and one hell of a lyracist. So we decided rather than waste our time explaining our sound to other people and auditioning them just to find out it's not their bag, we would just record our songs with just the two of us and hand it out to potential band members to listen to and see if they dig the direction we want to go in.

    I have a relly hard time describing our sound but it's very Queensryche sounding, just a bit heavier.

    The covers we've recorded for fun (and learning how to record with) are:

    Red Rain - Peter Gabriel
    When Doves Cry - Prince (except really dark and NIN sounding)

    LMAO, the other guy.

    Strange Deja Vu

    Me - Guitar/Vocals
    The guy that slaps his bass
    The guy that hits shit
    And the keyboard player.

    We play a variety of music, including originals, too many to mention.

    Also starting up another band, with

    Me - Guitars/Backing vocals
    The same guy who hits shit

    And hopefully on of the singer(s) and bass player(s) who is audition next week will be great.

    My two friends and I have tried to start a band numerous times, but the problem is that we all play guitar and don't sing. We will stand there in the basement with the drum machine on, just playing random stuff over top of each other. Then we usually get bored and go eat or get on the computer, and that's the end of band practice.

    Knackered!

    It's a Monday morning and my band have gigged on Fri, Sat & Sun night - I really am knackered!

    I am in a duo......we programme all our stuff on drum machine, add keyboards and backing vox and we play guitar / bass / sing. We play most weekends and it's great being able to go out and basically play for two hours have a couple of drinks and get paid for it.

    When I was younger - I never thought I'd do a cover band - but it's the best thing I've ever done! We play everything from VH back to Elvis, Bon Jovi back to Bobby Darin! (All in a rock / pop context).

    I use two Wolfgang Standards, one as per Humans Being (patent pending) and one Amber Flame that I have taken all the gloss off so that it is just bare wood (imagine a Nuno with awesome flame....) through a Boss GT-5 into a 4x12 simulator into the desk! Great sound! Gotta say tho....finger are sore today....
    Ed: Actually, the last record I bought was by a band called Brand X
    Al: I make my living by viciously attacking something
    Mike: ...actually I don't drink.
    Sammy: Are these yours Eddie?
    Dave: Look at that ankle - dirty girl!

    2 Of em. Been playing Guitar for 11 years, Keys for 5 and Drums for 5. I'm a guitarist at heart and Ed is the man that inspired it. The other band is like a side project.

    Lifesblood
    Me - Guitars, Backing Vocals, Keyboards, Accessory Percussion
    Rob - Vocals
    Ryan - 4 string thing
    Mike - Drums, Percussion, Keyboards

    During a live show we roll out a 2nd drumset and Ryan takes over my guitar and Rob takes the bass and we have the whole Godsmack Shannon Larkin and Sully Erna drum dual that eventually leads into the Guitar solo.

    Bullet-proofed John Paul
    Josh - Guitars, Lead Vocals
    CJ - Guitars
    Ryan - 4 String Thing
    Me - Drums, Keyboards
    If this band ever got signed i wouldnt take it because i'm a guitarist at heart but Josh and CJ take it pretty serious. Its just a fun thing for me and ryan.

    Default All guitars in High School

    I dont know about you guys but when I was in high school alota the high school "rock" bands in the 90s all played Metallica and they were all comprised of guitar players..youd have guitarist turned bassist, and you had guitarist turned drummer...and guitarist turned lead singer..lol

    Why does everyone wana play that instrument anyway?

    Unfortuantley I am a guitar player and I wish I wasnt...beacuse lets face it we are a dime a dozen.

    To find a good drummer is hard, to find a solid drummer is damn near impossible...and to find a bass player who actually understands melodic content and who can be as solid with a drummer is asking to much.

    I remember I was the lead singer for a band in high school, man thats when i learned that I couldnt sing to save my life...lol

    Anyway, just figured Im not the only one whose been in that situation.

    7 Guitar band...and they all play metal

    Man I should have learned the Bass.

    Default The Venturi effect

    I've been writing and recording on my own for the past couple of years. Played in a bunch of cover bands in the Louisville area.
    I've recently started putting together a band to play my original music out live. We're called "The Venturi Effect" and some songs can be heard at:
    http://www.purevolume.com/theventurieffect
    http://www.garageband.com/artist/Jeff_Grimm

    Right now we're a 3 piece with me doing guitar and vocals. I hope to expand the lineup soon since a 3 piece band really doesn't do my stuff justice.
