I'm a seasoned guitarist who has been playing for 25+ years (on and off); much of that time as a semi-pro musician in the Twin Cities (MN) area. I am looking for an original project to get involved with now that I've relocated in the Madison area. I have tried unsuccessfully to find something by responding to other people's ads, so since that hasn't worked, I figure posting my own ad may work.
Since I cannot find a project to join, I'm putting together a heavier original project that can integrate many genres into one overall sound, much like Faith No More, STP, Mr. Bungle, Sabbath, etc. All the "MrMoon" material will be used as a springboard, and from there we will collaborate on our own original tunes. Not looking for "utility players" or jobbers at this point, but that does not mean that this would have to be your only band/project/gig. This is not a project about "making it", getting famous, getting rich, or just sitting around getting drunk/stoned/etc. talking about how awesome we are and that people just don't "get" our sound . . .but, more about making original music that we all dig and see where it goes from there.
And having FUN!!!!
Through my previous ads (thanks CL!), I have met up with a kick-buttocks drummer who looks to be on-board and more than capable to fill the drummer position as well as writing and production roles!
3. and potentially another guitarist (audition process will take pace once the rhythm section is in place and tight!)
Please check the links out below for original projects I have been involved in: (most recently) as a writer/bassist/guitarist/producer (MrMoon), and as a writer/guitarist/producer (Highdroplain). This is a pretty good average of the stuff I write, but there are some mellower things and some heavier things as well. Please note that I wrote/co-wrote and played on all of the tracks posted below:
If this sounds interesting, please respond including links/sample files of *YOU* playing with any bands, projects, etc., that I could check out to make sure we're in the same ballpark. I will reply to all inquiries, so if you do not hear back from me, try again and I will get back to you ASAP.
