Hey! I'm Marcus, 23 years old. Been playing guitar for several years and bought a bass early 2008 to join my friends skatepunk band.

I've always wanted to play some kind of rock/metal, but since I don't have time for two "real" bands, I thought that I'll give the online band idea a try.

Some bands that I listen to:

August Burns Red
Amon Amarth
Dark Tranquillity
DevilDriver
Unearth
Meshuggah
Lamb of God
Slayer
Pantera
The Black Dahlia Murder
Threat Signal
Darkest Hour

Just so you know; I play with a pick and I can't slap...

Hmm online band.. Not usual in my country ,cyprus,. İm orginally just a lead guitarist but also playing drums and bass guitar. And in my damn city finding a bass or a drum player almost impossible. You cant imagine how many months toke for training some guys/gals for these jobs.

İ thinks Band = Band so you gonna give almost much time as a real band. May be without a concert chance.

İ like finger playing i played enough with picks with my Jackson RR3

Good luck mate

Yeah it's hard to find good band mates

Online band = no rehearsals and no gigs so it's not as time demanding as a real band. I just want to create music with others using recording equipment and guitar pro (basically)

Thanks and good luck to you too!

İts the way i practise but realy sounds of guitar pro sucks.. My over drive is more agressive than Guitar pro's distortion xD and not with my rhoads.. just a strato xD

The best practie is : Put your mom to drums to give you some slow rhytm. Take your bass and try out Muse is good for bass players.


Good luck in this hard metal way
