Band stuff
    #3459427 - 12/07/04 02:00 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I'll start simple.

Who here is in a band?


--------------------
Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Deep Blue, you have income coming from anywhere else other than the band, or little things you do on your own.. aka, no employer?

I'm thinking about sacrificing financial stability for the dream.  It's just a $1500 bonus that's holding me here until March...  I need that money for the summer.. :smile:

That's the spirit everybody!

/hands out spliffs to band members

err and uhh.. I was in a band a while back, but my drummer moved away on me. I just do solo electronica stuff now, since my guitar amp's broken and I don't have an acoustic to record. Maybe for Christmas. :wink:

Why not do a gig with a drum machine? I've got friends that have a band without a drummer, they just program their own beats. All you need is stage presence to make up for the lack of a loud ass drummer pounding away on stage.

I can see where you're coming from. The band my friends are in is kinda 80's dark wave stuff anyway, so the cheeseball beats fit in well. :smirk:

i am banded together with a friend, though we dont play gigs. we lost our drummer to a band that actually plays gigs.

anyways... im working on my guitar and i sing. spymoose1 does the bass and most of the music writing, we have another friend who plays keys very well and hes thinking about accompanying us. then we realy only need a drummer...

in the meantime i write electronic music for pleasing backgrounds to trip too... that is much fun.

as soon as things come togther with my friends, i wouldnt hesitate to quite my job and tour.

as son as i get my own elec system up and running (instead of working on the PC) i have the cabability to release a record, and that would be a great step to people listening to my electroni stuff.

yup.

and i play the didjerido.

For me it's:

Work:

Pays bills
Allows me to have a place to live
Lets me eat
Lets me get high and buy things
Lifestyle analysis: I hate it.

Music:

Allows me to follow my dream
Allows me to travel if I make it
Allows me to spend my time how I want it to be spent
Lifestyle analysis: Unstable, but if it worked out, everything I want.


It's just such a huge risk, and I WANT so desperately to be able to take it.. I just don't know.

My alesis can not handle complicated funk/fusion beats man. I am a B3 player at heart.
