Just interested to see who plays in a band/church/group of some sort
If you've got a Soundcloud or Myspace or something with stuff to listen to then share it with the rest of us!

They let black people on Fox now?

They also let white people into the KFC and the NBA now.

I'm playing in an originals band right now but we haven't been playing long so no recordings/gigs yet. I'm also playing in a Michael Jackson tribute band for college.

Well I've resurrected an old band, was just me and the guitarist, now we found a bassist. Stuck a mic in the room and just blasted out 4 tracks (Hibernation-The Bear (Something to do with Pedo Bear). It's my main band currently.

I used to play the drums in a "Band" (ok it was just me and 2 friends, we never actually played out at a gig or anything) but that finished at the beginning of last year and since then pretty much nothing.

As a drummer, never. I've never felt creatively attached to other musicians when I'm not the one playing guitar.

Guitar seems to be the only instrument I've played that I feel confident with in my creative abilities, and feel confident sharing that with other musicians.

No I don't because nobody around here sees eye to eye with me musically. I might be joining up a bar cover band just to make money, i'm gonna hate playing every song they ask me to play. When I jam with people around here I always hold back on my abilities that way the guitar player can keep up with me. I pretend like i'm not that good and pull a Lars Ulrich just to give them a show, make them feel important. I see so many good guitar players on ultimate guitar and it's a shame I can't find people who play like that in my area.

Dylan, you're so modest, I love it

Also, I'm playing in a metal band right now, it's not very serious at the moment (the other 2 members are in 8th grade) but there will hopefully be lots of progress as the other broz get older and better at their instruments and stuff, although the latter applies to me as well

Are you playing grind with 8th graders? That would be so rad

"Hi, thanks for letting us play the 8th grade talent show. We're called Mutant Christ and this song is called 'GNAWING THE FLESH OF THE SODOMITES!'"


Anyway, link for my EP

Modesty is actually a very useful way to impress people and to make them feel like they're an intelligent (musical, in this case) person. Did you know that?

I will keep that in mind, it's not about skill. Kid Rock made a lot of albums some of them were big hits I'm not a fan of Kid Rock myself but we all have opinions, who am I to judge? I wasn't trying to start a fight or anything like that, just frustrating that people don't know what is good anymore.

It's a bit subjective, the term "good". What may be good to you, someone else might not like, and for not very good reasons most of the time. And it's the same the other way round.

But I know what you're getting at, I think, I used to be in the same boat and never really found many musicians that were into what I was into.

Wait, what has Kid Rock got to do with this, apart from the fact that he's a cocky pansy and his music is dull, insipid and pretentious?

I find it frustrating that people think music has devolved in some way. There was shit back in the 60's and 70's just like there is now. It's simply that, now, starting a band and releasing your music to the world is so easy that it seems there is more shit, because we're all hearing it.

Good music is a subjective thing. When I listen to the majority of a Rolling Stones record, I don't hear very much ingenuity or emotional prowess, same goes for KISS and Mötley Crüe, but people still love that shit for some reason. When I listen to Fleet Foxes, though, or Godspeed You! Black Emperor I see a lot more emotion and creativity.
