Im lookin for a Drummer, Singer or Screamer, and a 2nd Guitarist

Dang why do you have to live all the way in Eau Claire?! I live in Madison, WI. I play electric guitar, have been playing for about 2 years. I play and listen to mostly rock/screamo/emo/punk/pop punk stuff like Story of the Year, Linkin Park, Senses Fail, Yellowcard etc. I am looking for bass player, guitarist, drummer, singer, basically everything. Seriously no one in Wisconsin plays instruments i dont think
#3
Ya no one plays up here its stupid only guitar and most of them can only play smoke on the water except there's alot of bassists here.
#4
i ply electric but am in greenbay. Starting a band but it sucks cause there aren't a lot of people that play up here either
#5
Yeah, seems like most people from Wisconsin would rather shoot a deer rifle than play guitar or any other instrument...At least around where i live.
#6
hey...i sing and play a little guitar...i live half an hour from the cities, so maybe this could work out? let me know.... fadingelvenprincess@yahoo.com

i listen to a lot of stuff....three bands i've listened to today are david bowie, my chemical romance and AFI
#7
I'm a bass player...I'm in Menomonee Falls...I do lights for a band called The Empty Suits as well...you're pretty much all right about the lack of musicians (or good ones...) here in WI.

I live in Madison too. Do live on the East or West side? I can play guitar, bass, and drums.

did you know the major scale on a piano, starting at whatever note (lets say E). you just go straight up the white keys without hitting a black one. and you got the major scale.

Anyone live near South Beloit or Beloit?

Hey, Fellow 'Consinites, greetings from "Sin City", Sheboygan, WI.
I've got the foundations of a good cover band; I'm a bass player/lead/rhythm with a great drummer, and a fair rhythm player (he's a great vocalist), looking for a dedicated lead player to do weekend jobs. We do covers of classic rock (you name it, we'll probably play it), alternative (Goo Goo Dolls, Blink 182, Shinedown, List goes on and on). I own a PA. We all have great careers, but supported ourselves in college in bands, and never got it out of our systems. You all are right. If you don't live in Madison, Milwaukee, or Green Bay (you guys claim it's dry up there?) there's not a whole big community of musicians. I've checked the WI classified board (what a lump of cr@p, they charge to post replies), and most players are in these cities. I've seen posts from guys trying to form something so esoteric as a Christian Rock group in the metropolis of Crivitz (population of what, 1000 during the summer)! Anyone out there from 'Boygan? Good luck to you all on getting a group together!

I'm in oshkosh. I play guitar. it sucks that there is like NOBODY that plays any type of rock in the fox valley. it's either christian music or country around here.

Hey... I posted on this forum a while ago, but anyone that looks on this forum that lives in one of the following cities: Somerset, Hudson, New Richmond, Stillwater and Bayport and is looking to start a band or looking for a killer singer, let me know! I'm dying for a project. It may be a while before I can respond, because I don't have internet at my house, but it's only temporary.

peace and love,

Hey, i'm looking for a singer, I live by Iillonois but still in Wisconsin. Somewhere around ages 13-17. I play guitar and drums. It is pretty stupid, I only know two other people in the ENTIRE STATE that play guitar or something cool like drums and bass and not Piano... or violin... or stupid stuff like that. I like anything rock/metal basically like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Trivium, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, stuff like that.

Guitarist, 1 year of serious playing. Give me the name of songs you wanna play, I'll play like that. Mostly blues and rock right now. Just an acoustic guitar. =\

15 years old, getting a permit, car, and job pretty soon so I can buy some good equipment.

Home school so no major time issues. Usually chill at UW-Parkside. stsmoonblade@gmail.com is the MSN.
