    Newly formed, Belfast based, Alternative Rock outfit looking for a permanent bassist.

    Concentrating on original, guitar driven, music with the whole band contributing to the song writing process.

    Age range as it stands is 19 - 23, and currently using the facilities at the Oh Yeah Centre for practice.

    If you have any questions, or would be interested in a jam, be sure to contact me!

    im sorry, but if your music is guitar driven, wouldn't it be better just to have a guitarist and a singer?

    It means they would like someone who is happy to stand at the back and play root notes.

    i realised that, but i dont think many bassists want to do that.

    To interject, at what point did a bass stop being a guitar?
  6. avatar MiltonG565
    they are different entities. as a bassist, i would never refer to myself as a guitarist. i play guitar too, but if i wanted people to know that, i would refer to myself as a guitarist. if you wanted to play something like a tight groove and big hitting baseline, you probably should have said something along those lines in the OP, because i don't think many bassists want to be in a band where the guitarist thinks he is the balls, and the others are just there to keep things ticking over while he fucks about.

    I see guitar driven as meaning riff heavy, not just 6 string.

    i suppose it could mean that, but it didn't come across that way.
