The Band Thread

Thought I would start a new topic for any Band related content…

Anything and everything: rehearsals, gigs, auditions, stories, audio or video.

I had a rehearsal with my new band last Thur- we met up for the fist time in October, and this would have been our 2nd practice. Unfortunately, this time my rhythm guitarist was sick, and then the drummer informed me on the way in that he had to work late and could not attend. (so it was just me and the lead guitar) Luckily I had some drums recorded on my looper pedal as a back up.

Once I got home I added some synth to a few of the tracks, and then also some bass on the 2 songs where I was “attempting” to play guitar.

Here are some partial segments of our current originals:

Hey Eric: My original group is somewhat in limbo, but hopefully we will resume after the holidays early next year. That was a band I originally put together to play covers. (but along the way, I also started writing) Some of the stuff I was creating had faster tempos and the drummer just did not feel like he was able to continue with that much energy. (and the singer’s husband got a bad, lengthy case of Covid- but he has since recovered thankfully)

So towards the end of the summer, I placed another CL ad looking for people who might want to play originals- sort of in the style that I was coming up with. (retro/surf/space)
My same lead guitar player from the other band is also in this one- but we’ve got a new drummer and rhythm guitarist. I am really hoping to find a synth player that can jump in and really add a new level to what we are trying to do. (but for now, I am just adding my simple key stuff as accents here and there)

Thanks for asking! Phil

Since you mentioned the other group… I just realized: “Nightfall” was one of those earlier songs and I posted it as an entry for Josh’s planned video about how to make your basslines better. It was selected as one of those to be included in the project, but I never saw the finished video. I’m not sure if it’s still in development, or if Josh scrapped the idea.

I was really looking forward to it so that I could play a cooler version that Josh might come up with! (so hopefully that project is not dead)

Very nice @lee_editorial.

I just hope, if someone asks me to come play with them they don’t demand I wear a mask when I get there.
I’ll walk.
