04-24-11 – Birmingham, AL>Atlanta, GA – Hobby band with blues and Southern rock oriented set list needs a bass player for regular Saturday jams, 10:30 to 2:00 Age/race/gender irrelevant. We are not pro level and we are not looking for a Geddy Lee, just someone who enjoys our type of music and can at least hit the root notes on time most of the time for starters, and is willing to learn the signature bass parts over time. Average age of our group (two guitar, vocal, drum) is about 40. We meet at a studio on East North Street near Stone Avenue.
Here are some things we know from experience do not work for our band …
Needs a ride
Needs a shower
Needs to sober up
Needs a bass/amp
Feels that louder is always better
Needs to learn the basics of beginner bass
Looking for a ready made band to cajole into gigging
Feels that “10:30″ means “sometime between 11:00 & 12:00″
Feels that bass and case should never part outside of band time
Feels that the band is a great backing track for scale experiments
Feels that band time is a good time to get smashed on alcohol or drugs
Feels that band time is the right time to have that overdue screaming fight with spouse
If you are offended by this list then it has served it’s purpose. For the rest …
If you are interested but not sure your skills are up to it, please contact me and let’s together and try some of the songs. We are willing to work with someone who is not so great on bass just yet, but is dependable and willing to make effort toward improvement.
