Just wondering. I'm a pretty beginner guitarist, making pretty good headway on the learning thing, with good gear (in a few weeks, anyway). I'm preferably looking for people around the McMaster region of town (since I don't travel much and I live on campus - fellow undergrads would be the best thing ever) whom I can hang out with or a starting-out band that wants a rhythm guitarist who isn't the most skilled person in the world - but getting there.

I'm 19, play and listen to a lot of heavier alternative/indie stuff, am open-minded and fairly intellectual and I can't stand people that're either really stupid or have egoes the size of a house. I mean, I don't mind immaturity unless it's all you bring to the table.


I know it's a pretty damn long shot, but if there's anyone out there who sounds like the kind of person I can chill with without wanting to stab him in the face, get back to me.

Yeah, I got your pm, added ya on facebook.

I'm a bit inconvenienced right now (amp and cab are in the post, waiting on a new tonepros bridge so I can take my guitar in and get it restrung/setup - I'm too much of a cheapskate to do it beforehand) so I'll let you know when I'm free to jam. I have to warn you that I'm not a very good player, though - although I don't totally suck and I roughly know my way around.

Also, anyone know any good teachers in the area?

Doug Murphy, he's at Payne Music downtown... I wouldn't say i learned a lot anything directly from him. but he shows me a lot of things that get me playing different sounding lines and such. really helped my playing in the long run.

Your an idiot, chill out and have a beer. Your musical knowledge and guitar skills are minimal at best,

Your pal,

Doug Murphy

I've visited both Payne and Absoloute and both places have great people - just find someone that clicks with you and your golden.

This thread is a bit dated, but If there are still any hamiltonian musicians looking for some jams I'd love to meet up and play some tunes. I'm a mostly blues/rock oriented (clapton, SRV, Mayer) guitarist/singer/writer. It would be sick to find a drummer and a bassist with similar tastes.

Give me a shout at Jordan.markowski@utoronto.ca
