I'm looking for a drummer, a bassist, a singer, and a keyboard/pianist

I'm a 16-year old guitarist trying to form a band that could be sort of a "classic rock revival" group.  It'll be a couple more years before I start auditioning people but I thought I'd just see if anybody on this site is interested.  BTW- If you have a youtube video of some of your performances that would be great.  It would also be good to have songwriters too. ;)

I, myself, have written 70+ songs in the course of a year, and along with guitar, I'm a bassist and pianist.

If anybody's out there, please help ;)

Thanks

Good luck!  Hope works out well!  (Don't think you'd want my keyboarding 'skills' though, unless you're aiming to exterminate all interest in music!)

As a matter of fact I am aiming to do that (to popular music nowadays, at least)

I'm in America, in the state of Missouri.

You guys could name the band BRASSOURI and feature a horn section.

Hi
I'm just north in Iowa. I can't help otherwise as I don't play anything but a didgeridoo, and not very well. The cicadas like it though.[img=/images/smiley/msn/confused_smile.gif][/img]

I play piano - I live in London but I'd fly to Brazil to join Brassouri if the men in the band would wear brassieres.  Over their clothes.  That would be a trite yet amusing gimmick don't you think?

The didgeridoo is nearly impossible to get a clear note from - I'm impressed!

I think the didgeridoo is like the sitar, in that - if you're going to play it, play it properly and with full cognizance of it's cultural significance.  You run the risk of random people complaining if you just pick it up and play whatever pleases you.

I say this because I played the sitar for about a year and while I was doing okay at it, I really wasn't playing it 'properly' and I actually offended quite a few Indians.

I wanted to tell them that their random phone calls at all hours, trying to sell me new mobile phone plans was also offensive to me, but I didn't push the matter.

I'm sure that palying the sitar has to be far more complicated than playing didgerdoo. The first thing about a didge is that most people try to blow into it like they were blowing a horn, which doesn't work. Once you get the hang of how to blow it right then the biggy is the circular breathing required to keep it constantly going, sort of like a bagpipe, only you have to do it with your breath. I suspect that it is like learning to ride a bicycle where after many tries, finally the balance thing kicks in and there you go. Then you have trouble remembering not being able to balance. After that then you can add animal calls through the didge and so on to embellish.

I'm sure that an aborigine would throw rocks at me! That's why I play for cicadas, and a couple of times for my camel, whose voice was like a didgeridoo!!!!!

Ha!  Well if you're only playing for animals beginning with C, then you won't be offending anyone anyhow!

I would wager that the sitar is more complicated, technically speaking, but I was more talking about the cultural implications.  But nevermind!

If you are intrigued by the didge, that is.

Thanks for the suggestion, Microwave. Looks and sounds like a wild bunch - something my animist tribe might like. 

So is the didge mostly a rhythm instrument or what?

I blow a mean shofar too!  [img=/images/smiley/msn/wink_smile.gif][/img]
