    So what do you guys think?

    I just posted this on www.gainesvillebands.com in hopes that local musicians might check it out.

    Anything I should leave out or add?

    Peace

    FWIW, I would've shortened your list of bands, and maybe just listed a few genres. I would've left anything else out that may turn a band off from calling you (like listing what you don't like, your transportation situation). But that's just my opinion...I haven't been a band yet...just thought I'd give my input. Perhaps you could put up an e-mail, or if you'd be comfortable posting your phone number, that too.

    Looks good!

    I'd trim it down a bit though - keep it short and sweet to start with. IME, most people are only looking for key words when scanning through classifieds.

    I'd just go with paras 1,3 and 6. Also, keep the pics for requests only.

    YMMV of course. :)

    :bawl:

    :D

    (we're looking for a bassist with your attitude)

    i'd also shorten the info and include an e-mail.

    good luck with your future band!

    Thanks for the tips.

    The transportation thing I feel is very important to include so I dont come off as decietful when they find out whats up. The rest I figure gives people an impression of me. I might edit some of it out.

    I like to leave in the pics to show that Im not a stand in the shadows type of bassist. Im at the front of the stage and in action all the time. I want a band that wants that.

    Thanks for the help.

    Peace
