Do you play in a band?





rockstar
There seems so be quite a few musicians on here. What instrument do you play? What type of music do you play? Original material? Covers?

I play guitar in an original heavy rock band, called The Divide

This is my band www.divide-online.co.uk also at www.myspace.com/thedividerocks

I don't play in a money-making band, but I do play in my school's concert band. I play the Alto Saxophone and I am the top of my class. As you could probably guess, we play material from other people. XD

I played flute in concert band for 7 years, but, when i hit high school, I got kicked out of the band, it was a different instructor, and he tried to sign me up for something I didn't wanna do, and I didn't show up performance day. Was kind of amusing when gave me this whole lecture on it but.. meh.. I wasn't really listening to anything he said, cuz I didn't like him. 7 of my friends have actually dropped out of the school band, because the don't like him AT ALL, and all of these people were in band for 5+ years.
It was kind of sad for me to drop out, cuz with my old instructor i enjoyed lessons and whatnot but.. Oh well.

Anyways thats the concert band part, right now, I'm not currently in a band, however, I'm looking to join a Screamo/Metal band and do vocals and possibly bass. I haven't played much bass but I'm a fast learner and am willing, and I know a bit of guitar already, and I'm very good at playing-by-ear.
But mainly I'm looking to do harsh vocals Smile

I play western guitar. I like to sing and play rhythm guitar, but I don't have a steady band. Some friends do, though, so I meet them at their rehearsal room and play with them a few hours sometimes. We play both covers and own songs - songs from their band and songs I wrote. And sometimes we're jamming and writing new songs, too.
David_Pardy
I play drums.

I'm currently in a rock/indie sort of band, it's good fun and experimental enough for me to start pushing my boundaries and come up with new ideas Smile.

I'm trying to get a fusion/prog/thrash metal band started as well.
ftv_flung
I'm in a Jazz/Fusion/Rhythm & Blues band with some friends from my junior school. :O

2 keys (1 is me)
Guitar
Bass
Drums
Vox on the way!!

We've played a few gigs, and just looooove jamming.
rockstar
There seems to be lots of people that play (or at least talk about) guitar on here, but so few people actally play in a band? I can belive that everyone just plays in their bedroom.
Come on! Don't be shy!
Ankhanu
I play in a three piece rock band playing primarily originals, called This is a Blackout! I'm the bassist. We just recorded some basement demos that we'll hopefully have mixed soon.

rockstar
Well done Ankhanu! I listened to your tracks. I don't think that the recordings really do your material justice.
Ankhanu
Thanks. We're not that good, but we are playing/creating music, which is what matters. When you're not looking to have a career in music, the fun is more important than the quality Wink I'd like to re-record the ones that are posted, but time constraints won't allow that. The rest, hopefully will be finished before our next show on the 13th... then they'll be posted too.
tony
I used to be in an indie electronic band. but no more Sad had to drop it to make time for other things. maybe again some day.....
rockstar
Thats a shame Tony. I've just become a parent myself. I know how hard it is to make time for my music, but I'm not ready to give up just yet!
tamilparks
i just started learning now only, so i will be pick it up very sooon..
Ankhanu
Parenthood slows things down a bit, but you should be able to take a couple hours a week for jamming... maybe not for the first few weeks or months, but once you and your partner get into the groove of things Smile (I have a 6 y/o)

Just be sure to take some time out of your day to play some music on your own. It'll be good for you, and perhaps help instill a sense of respect for music in the baby.
rockstar
I'm still playing Ankhanu. We have a couple of gigs a month and we practice once a week. My "day job" is as a live sound engineer and my girlfriend is also a musician who plays flute and piano to a high standard. She also makes electronic "chill out" music (whatever that is! lol). There's every hope that baby Georgia will also be musical too.
bananamuffin3

rockstar
I think " Banana Muffin" is a good name, myself! LOL!

There are a bunch of mistakes and there are tonal limitations due to the mics we had, but, here's the other tracks on our (This is a Blackout!) 6-track EP:

No prob, Ortie. I don't do the tea thing myself, but I like the odd JD or two Wink

The Divide are currently in the process of mixing a new album. We spent a couple of weeks in the studio tracking and stated mixing there, but we were unhappy with the sound, so myself and the bass player are trawling through 15 songs (some of which use 30 channels!) a couple of evenings a week, every week, to get it finished.
So far we have only one finished....only another 14 to go! It does sound really good tho.
All our previous tracks were done completly at home with whatever mics we had, on to a hard disc recorder and then mixed on Cubase.

I'm a frustrated drummer.
I've always wanted to be able to play the drums...
So far playing with it was as far as I got, but making real music out of it?
Pfft.. That's another story.

Though yes, I used to be a band member.
I was a lead vocalist back when I was in college.
And boy, werent those nights awesome!
