Recreational weekend drummer looking for guitarist(s)

Postby pcomerford » Tue, 25 Nov 2008 1:27 pm

I use to play with a couple mates back in London on the weekends as a hobby and I would like to do the same here. We would always look forward to it. Nothing too serious mind you - just go to a studio and jam for a bit and work on some songs.

So I'm looking for someone who enjoys his/her guitar, and would like to hit the studio so they can plug it in and turn it up a bit.
I know I’m keen to bash those skins nice and loud – that electric kit I have just isn’t the same.
With so many studios around town, it’s silly not to do it!

I’m a young 35 so I'm thinking more of the old definition of rock n’ roll like, but not limiting to the usual older culprits – Led Zep, Who, Neil Young, Stones, and moving up the years with Pearl Jam (yup they are still around) and Green Day, just to name a few…
Not too keen on playing the likes of artic monkeys as the sound is a bit too soft for me.
So if you are bringing a fender, I hope you’ve got a Big Muff to go with it.

Just looking for guitar(s) at the moment – lets keep it simple and get some rhythm going, then see what happens…

Paul

P.S. This is pretty casual stuff – no gigs planned or anything like that.
It’s just a hobby. Just some recreational fun on the weekends with like minded people…

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

I'm a 30 year old dutch guy, and I play guitar (among other things). I've been trying to collect people to start a recreational band, over the last few weeks and we're definately short a drummer. Actually, band-wise we're short of most things; but I have been able to find some people to jam with.

Music-wise; I'm very much into bands like Pearl Jam and Green Day, but also the heavier stuff (Biohazard, Nightwish). I wouldn't mind playing some blues either though. I won't be bringing a Fender, but I've found you can rock pretty well on a Les Paul.

Truth be told; I know few rock songs on guitar, as I'm mostly used to writing my own stuff. But I'm happy to study some cover songs as it'll improve my playing.

I'd be happy to meet up and play some together and see if we can get something on the road. I'm not yet so at home with rehearsal studio's, but I'm sure we can find something. Drop me an e-mail if you would.

Bassist, still looking for experienced players to form or to join an outfit, rock or preferably funk/R&B.
