Hello!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Confusitron, Sep 27, 2003.


  1. Howdy! I'm new here. I discovered this place sometime this summer and have been meaning to join. You guys/girls are amazing! Your basses and amps make my head want to explode!

    I can't say I'll be a dedicated member here, on account of I'm a percussionist mainly. I don't even really consider myself a bassist. I did learn "I Got Rhythm" by George Gershwin on bass recently for Jazz Band. Well, sort of learn it. I know basically the choruses.

    I may focus on bass for a while because I'm not really improving and I don't have access to teachers in my stupid little town.

    Some bands that I currently listen to are (there are many more):

    U2
    Coldplay
    Smashing Pumpkins
    The Cure
    Rush
    Dream Theater
    Joe Satriani
    Dream Theater
    Everclear
    Nirvana
    Foo Fighters
    The Misfits
    Radiohead
    The Mars Volta
    Oasis
    Zwan
    Led Zeppelin
    Etc.

    Remember, that is what I am currently listening to.

    I may add more to this thread later.

    I hope I have a good time here.
     
  2. There is a TB member who's band is named Confusitron. They have samples in their songs that they trigger live by using an old Nintendo control pad. :D


    You'll enjoy TB so much though now, you'll never want to leave. You think I'm kidding? This place is like internet crack.

  11. Whoops! I had that list originally posted someplace else. I edited it there when I went to copy it to here and discovered it there but didn't edit it here. :meh: I actually don't listen to them often. Rarely do I listen to them. I like them though.

    Clay: Awesome location and probably the greatest song I have ever heard.
