I've put together a basic [url=/recruitment.php]Recruitment Listings[/url] page to help people looking for like-minded musicians or to fill a hole in their lineup.
All you need to do is edit your [url=/profile_edit.php]user profile[/url], under the 'bands' section add any instruments you can play (competently). One per line, just the general instrument name and no extra text.
Oh. I'm very happy with my current triangle playing position but I'd like to be able to say "I play triangle". Having the radio button for available/unavailable would allow you to display my triangle skills in my user profile, but not display it in the recruitment list.
For recruitment purposes, it would be cool to see 'influences' or some sort of last.fm thing to see what style of music they're in to. But then if they use last.fm, I'm sure they have the link in their profile. I'd def want to check what kinda stuff people are into before approaching them about playing.
Haha, I think when you really think about it, it wouldn't come under just 'organ' tis a specific sound my dear fellow.
But then again if it was just 'organ' and 'guitar', then people could put the make and model on their profile, sort of like a gear list. Though that could become a bit snobby with people choosing the best gear over the best player...

A guitar is a guitar is a guitar in the majority of cases (unless you're using one of those 'stick' things). A Hammond organ is totally different to, say, a church organ in that it has a totally different sound and requires a distinct set of playing techniques (I'd say the same about synth players who have to fiddle with all those filters while playing). You might as well lump bass and guitar players together by your reckoning. Besides, there are people out there who specifically look to recruit hammond players.
- instrument list sorted alphabetically to ease finding a particular instrument (and helps highlight inconsistent naming)
- users have their full list of instruments mentioned alongside their location
