    Ok basically I'm a 20 year old guy who plays guitar, I have played for at least 5 years now and have had experience of playing on stage with a band in front of a good number of people.

    Basically I either want to join/form a band or just jam with other people really.

    I like most rock/indie etc. but I don't really like metal.

    I like Muse, Journey, Keane, Coldplay, ACDC, Radiohead, Snow Patrol, The Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Pink Floyd, Fall Out Boy, Biffy Clyro, Editors, Band of Horses, General Fiasco, My chemical romance, Bloc Party, The Black Keys, Runaway GO and many more.

    My only problem is that my current amp is only 4 watts (vox ac4) so I'm unsure as to whether I could play and be heard over a drummer but I may buy a louder amp at some point.

    If you are interested reply here and then I could maybe PM people my msn if they so desire.

    I now have a video of myself covering Everlong with the teachers at my music school which I could send to people if they so desire.

    Of the influences you've mentioned, I despise those bands with all my heart but, you sound like you've the potential to get somewhere so, could I tempt you into free improv, being strugling to establish such a band for yonks know and you'll eventully get board of indie when you learn more than 3 chords

    Free improv?

    By the way I'm at grade 3 level officially but I'm sure that I am of grade 4 or above.

    I've sent you an email.
  13. avatar loveisthelaw
    Improvised music with tunes no shorter than 18 minutes, just need good ear and sense of time, will accept everyone apart from singers, so, are you in ?

    No sorry, I would rather join a proper band, no offence.

    Also I'm currently talking to that other guy about joining his band.
  15. avatar jab
    Ok fortunately for you guys (lol) but unfortunately for me and that other band I was talking to I had to turn them down. The reason for this is that although I want to join a band atm I have to put school etc. first.

    Sure if you are interested talk to me and I'll see what I can do.

    Heylo, Me (Drummer) and buddy (rhythm guitarist and singer)are both 18, split up from our previous band about a year ago, and have been taking a break writing our own stuff for about a year. We have the exact same influences as yourself, and i've even played covers of chilli songs, radiohead, acdc and keane. We've just finished perfecting the lyrics, drums and guitar of our own material, just need a grade A bassist and a bit of lead to get a new band up and running, start gigging again and get our own material heard around the place, and see how it goers from there...

    P.s. Do you know theory? And is it possible for you to solo? :)

    If your interested, give me a text on 07564835779, or youcould even phone me :)
    Thanks, James

    Ok after thinking about this I'm going to withdraw from this due to other commitments, if things change I will post in this topic.

    Sorry for those who I spoke to recently though I have explained why.

    Just to clarify as much as I would love it to evolve into something more serious I cannot give any gurantees to people who want to gig, record etc. etc. due to the fact that I'm in my second year of uni at Queens and my timetable is pretty full.

    Hi, I'm a bassist, just moved over to Belfast and have been looking for something to get involved in. I like the sound of the influences you mentioned, so it'd be cool to get together and see if we can get something started. Let me know if you're interested.
