Hi All, I'm new to these forums and this is my first post. ...So please, be gentle! I play guitar primarily, but also have a bass set-up as I just love to occasionally sit back and sit on a Phat-Ar*e groove with my drummer and get funky! We're looking for a Bass player who can help collaborate with me in the hopes of 1. Completing a recording, and 2. forming a new band... I have enough songs - some with Bass parts (that could be improved maybe...?) and some without. These songs are like going around and around in my head and its an obsession I can't "put-to-bed" until They're recorded and we can share the finished tracks and promote etc... (I mean, I could record Bass myself - but I don't want to be a one-man show and have tracks that can't be performed and also, I appreciate other people's input) So, the right bassist would be someone who wants a bit of spotlight. someone who can improvise together funky and driving bass parts - don't have to be overly trechnical - just groovy and phat and complimentary to the rest of the song. (Yes, Slap is appreciated over in our corner) Bass intro for some songs would be good, so you see we're not looking for a bassist who'll sit on the root note and do a standard doon, doon, doon thing... :scowl::scowl: We want someone who can move and drive and help build our songs. If you have your own songs and bass lines you want jammed- out, bring them to us and we build them up - under your guidance! The rest of us are between 28-35 years old. We are Drums, Guitar and Vocals. So then, what kinda music is it...?? (The impossible to answer question) Imagine RATM but with a cleaner sound and without the protest lyrics (It was hard to write that - I love RATM) Or, Chilli peppers crossed with INXS - or Baby Animals with funky Bass and a single guitar - or Johnny Diesel acoustic with Funk Bass. Grind the sexy Rock/Funk music. That's what! The best way to find out more is to send me a PM and I'll organise either to send some bodgy recordings, or organise a jamm - or both. Whatever it takes to get the right person! Now, It needs to be said that I don't expect any financial input from anyone at this stage!!! So far, this has been my project and I'm willing to pay the rehearsal and recording etc, and I reserve the right to say yes or no to whether I think a Bass line or change in song structure suits the song etc. (No, I'm not a Riff Nazi - just have an idea of what will work - but am also open to ideas...) However, I can't afford to pay all that AND pay somebody to jamm - I'm not after a session player either! You have to have some input and want to be a part of something bigger. Anyway, I've said like HEAPS here and it's getting to big to read. If you're interested and want to learn more, please send me a PM and I'll be glad to get it and will respond ASAP. Cheers, Dan.
