    I recieved an email from some guy who needs a bass player. im passing on the offer but i will pass it along to you. this is the email...

    Later this Summer Derek will release his Debut Album "I Have A Ball". The Musician Alumni who performed on the Album is like a who's who in the music industry. With talent like Rock and Roll hall of fame inductee, Spooner Oldham and world renowned bassist David Hood, this album takes street credit to a new level for a new artist. Produced by Multi Platinum selling Producer Johnny Sandlin (Who is no stranger to creating great music, i.e.; The Allman Brothers, Cher, Wide Spread Panic). As a writer Derek has created a record that has no fillers.......

    We are looking for a bass player to tour with Derek Farris. He is from Indiana and currently lives in Goshen. Please Check out Derekfarris.com that will give you a good look at who we are. If interested in a audition please contact us @ promotions@DerekFarris.com

    Never trust bad grammar.

    Except for a random comma, there is nothing grammatically incorrect about that post. I'm an English teacher.

    Both Spooner Oldham and David Hood are world class studio musicians and part of the famed Muscle Shoals studio band. Both guys have been around since, at the least, the late '60's.

    If you're an electric bass player and have not heard or heard of David Hood, I have two things to say: 1) I'm sorry for you. 2) Google is your friend.

    Now, as to whether the the guy they recorded for is any good, that's something else altogether.

    Well, I was in the dark about Mr.Hood until I read this post. WOW! now that's a discography I would put up against any in the industry. Thanks for the prodding.
  11. I used to back up a really talented singer in the Pittsburgh area who put out a demo CD - but studio musicians were used for the demo.

    Management wanted the band I played with locally with to back him to tour, but either (a) we couldn't (which was why we played locally) or (b) those that could were appalled at the riduculously low amount of weekly pay they'd receive for going on the road.

    Be careful...

    How about capitalization?

    English is not only for the native English speakers. So many non-native English speakers have imperfect grammar but that doesn't mean that they are not trustworthy.
