Hi, all. :wave:

 

I just wanted to toss out that I need to locate a bass player in the Metro Boston area for a personal recording project, and future low-key gigs.

 

I'd like to record once a week, and later, maybe gig once a month.

 

Check out the Soundclick link in my sig block for an idea of the style, and drop a PM if you like.

 

Thanks.

I know, but have to stick up for us old timers that resent the spam that puts on an age requirement such as:

 

"21 to 24 years old, with car, and can buy beer for the band."

Don't look back. You never know what might be gaining on you.

Or the ads that list influences such as "Razorcrotch, Bonerfarm, Mucus Instinct" and a bunch of bands no one over 19 has heard of. :D

 

In defense of the "player wanted" ads...when I first started posting...I posted a few "keyboard player wanted in KC area" type posts on the Keyboard Corner. Dave Bryce was very supportive. I look at it this way...no one is selling anything, and posting an opportunity. Not the "GUARANTEED TO MAKE YOU JACO IN 10 DAYS" kind of opportunity, but a real, working opportunity. IMO, therein lies the difference.

Mucus Instinct? Didn't they open for Razorblade Toothbrush at the Dungeon in West Milford?

 

Post count DOES matter, but it's not the only thing that matters.

 

His advert wasn't offensive and it didn't have the obligatory "we have label interest" line that every spammer seems to feel the need to include in their advert.

Try craigslist.org . Works every time.

Thanks for the link. I'll have to check out the reply system over there and be ready for the influx.

 

I know what you mean about ads for "prog-metal/classical/bebop, label interest, we are very serious and rehearse 90 hours per week..." :rolleyes: I promise not to flame any bass players who wander into the guitar lounge. :cool: Thank you.

Like me! You've always been/seemed very nice, a class act the whole way.

If you're nice to someone on t'internet is it called soaking?

As if there was a g****r player around that had the ammunition, temerity, or wit to flame, with or without accelerant, even the slowest of bassists. :D
