    Been around for a long time. Evidently someone had problems finding a bassist.

    That wording sounds awfully familiar. Seen that one before. Still funny.

    If he were worth his salt, he would know how to make that Em and Bm work with one of his three notes respectively.

    I'm sure some people would actually consider hiring the guy.

    i've seen it before, too. i'd love to know if it was originally written as the joke it is, or as a response to a specific situation. any way that it came about: it's fun(ny)!

    Yeah it's all over the interwebz. Someone probably did a cut and paste.

    I posted it on cl and have gotten responses that thought it was humorous and others that were straight up pissed. Some people are just to serious, it can't be real.

    I must say, he's at least very upfront about what he's providing.

  12. I wanna know the story behind the missing E. Something really terrible must have happened to make him swear off it.

    Dude apparently lives near me. If you were considering hiring him, I will play the same notes for the same price but I have a car and can stay out late. Also I’ll go chromatic for $200, no per-note fees.

    (I assume this is a fake ad written by annoyed ex-band mates)
  14. Anyone who does not see this as an attempt at humor is taking life much too seriously.

    I’ve played with too many guitarists who have never and will never try to play any type of barre chord. Yet they are proud of their expensive equipment.

  17. I wonder if he'd be mad if I stole this and used it on my local Craigslist? :rolleyes:

    I've ranted on CL. Got alot of responses saying i was right. Problem in my area few years back, was inaccuracy, poor descriptions, age incorrectness, locations....you name it. Example- bassist needed for dance band. Make contact, what material are you doing? We do all Creedance. What? We do Van Halen, Judas Priest, and Sabbath. What? Guys thats not dance material.
    Or needed 18-24, but they dont mention that. Just so many things, that if i was running an ad i would cover as much detail as i could. So i wrote a half satire half informative post. Of course it changed nothing, but to see alot of others shared my frustration.
