Just curious as to whether most UGers are in a band or not. I'm not. Wish I was though, but no chance of that happening . Are you?
#5
I'm more of a solo artist, but I guess since I perform live, it counts.

No, but I'm trying to get people to start a band. All I need is a singer and a bassist.

Just do the one-man band thing. That's what myself and a lot of people do.

Not a proper band.

Three (or four or five) of us go to my mate's shed and make what is best described as 'noise'.

It involves lots of lovely noise and pedal ballet though, so tis all good.

yup

First you put your pants on your head.

i stand in as bassist when needed and play some synth on bass using various assortments of my friends pedals. doesn't sound like a synth much but its good fun. 'tis good. soon however, the bassist will be taking over as lead guitarist, the singer will be drumming aswell as the current lead guitarist and drummer are leaving for uni.
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

Until about 6 months ago I was in a fairly decent band, we did mostly weddings and sometimes some other gigs, like we did one for charity. I think I played about 10 gigs in that band, the band still exists (its already like 20 years old, I was the youngest in the band) and they're going on. I quit the band because I wanted to develop my own skills as a singer and wanted to make my own music. Singing is coming along pretty nice.

There were a couple hindrances in the band though, like a pretty crappy female back-up vocalist and a keyboard-player who just had no feel for the music. He practiced a lot but he just didnt have the feeling for it.

I'm in a punk band but we aint done anything in ages so me and a buddy are starting a sleaze punk band influenced by the likes of motley crue, ratt, hardcore superstar, murderdolls kinda bands.

I'm doing my solo ****, I have a live band for that.

I've also just formed a Fusion band with me on piano, and I'm joining an Indie band at University.

Haha, yes, quite a bit. I play blues and reggae and was in a band with a metal drummer, a hardcore punk guitarist and a singer who claims he listens to punk music.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

I used to have that problem. I wanted to play music and they wanted to play thrash.
#32
Err... Sort of. The drummer hates me so he's pretty much out of the band (though no one's ever made it official) leaving just me and the singer, since we never had a full-time bassist. The two of us still do stuff occasionally using a drum machine - mostly covers, but we've written a couple of new songs - but we don't really perform live

The whole story's too long to post, but to be honest I'm not sure if we ever counted as a real band in the first place

I'm in 2. I would be in 3, but one went on "hiatus" after one practice. I've also been in a bunch of 1 time things for school events, etc.

God I love being bassist.

I'm in the same band now that I've been in for about 5 years now.

Well, unless you're playing guitar by thrashing your dick around the strings I see no application of guitar technique to sex.
