    Default Musicians noob, pro, amateur etc come here!

    Just wondering if any other photogs out there who play music.. Im sure there are.

    If so what are your influences, genre, what instrument you play etc..

    Looking for like minded folks around here so maybe we can get together for a jam or something :P

    Been long since i last had a band.

    Personally i play rhythm guitar and abit of piano, vocals uh not very good at it but i can do certain jazz vocals.

    Influences: quite abit.. as long as they're not too heavy. I generally like contemporary rock and slow rock.

    I listen to bands like dishwalla, goo goo dolls, keane, damien rice, corrs, bee gees, led zepplin, hendrix etc..

    I also love Jazz and bossa nova.

    Anyone good vox out there? Lol. Pls identify urself!

    err this is embarassing, I play the er hu and gu zheng. haha

    and the piano, and the di zi. i can't sing for nuts.

    influences? errr i occassionally play pop-ish stuff on the piano (not very often anymore, too busy with work). I rarely touch the chinese instruments anymore.
    It is such a quiet thing to fall,
    But far more terrible is to admit it

    Ok cool let me summarize:

    G-khoo: Rhythm Guitar / Piano / abit of Vocals
    Ziincx: Bass
    Bovine: Violin (THIS IS AWESOME. Violinsts are a rare addition to bands. we can b like corrs)
    Vonlichenstein: Piano, er hu, gu zheng, di zi
    Johnmaeda: Piano
    Headshotzx: Flute

    This is an interesting combination. We have quite afew classical players too it seems.

    I used to play in ensembles as well.. and i can arrange scores - but that was for guitar though. I havent tried arranging scores for an orchestra.

    Whilst im looking at forming a traditional band - ideally 4 piece (1 vox, 1 guitarist, 1 bass, 1 drummer), trying something experimental might be good too..

    That said, we still need vocalists though.. so far no one here can claim they can sing. hahaha
