I say shut the rednecks up and learn freebird.
Stop using pounds to buy crap with, you limey tards. You can't use weight as currency.
Are you trying to pull a slipknot/skynyrd? What exactly do you have in your 7/8 piece band? The most I can think of is 6 in the traditional band outfit- rhythym and lead guitars, bass guitar, singer, drummer, and keyboardist, unless you've got some horns or backup singers.

You don't count the sound/lighting techs, do you?
I'm taking bets on how long it'll take for him to get assassinatied if he gets elected.

Anyway, I say corpse paint all the way.

AHAHA!!!! That would be sweet, and then at the end of the how rip off the mask and your shirt, on you chest reads " GO OBAMA!!!!". OMG!! That would rock.

Fuck Obama.
Never had one, never used one. I've never had the need for one to be honest.
Metallica- The Frayed Ends of Sanity
Judas Priest- Beyond the Realms of Death
This is for everyone in southern NJ who would like to set up a jam session and possibly get a band going.

I've been playing guitar for almost 3 and a half years now and I've been looking everywhere to try and start a band, but with no luck whatsoever so far. My main influences include Alice In Chains, Godsmack, Zakk Wylde, Lamb Of God, and Ozzy. I've been told that my playing style is as if AIC and Godsmack got together and started doing heavier stuff. I have some material written (a handful of songs), but would like to try and get a working band in order.

As for personal info, my name is Brian, I'll be 22 in November, and i have my own transportation, so I can travel, but would like to keep it local for the most part. If I can get something started, I'd be extremely dedicated to it as my work schedule is very flexible. I'd also like to have people on board who are 17 or older, preferably 18 or older as most places around me that do gigs are bars which requires you to be at least 18 to play there.

If you want to start something, send me a PM and I'll give you my personal contact info (phone, IM, etc.).
I can't find the tab for the keyboard/synthesizer part in Marylin Manson's cover of "Tainted Love". Can someone tab it out for me please?
I have a piano, but it's out of tune.
How do I tune to it though?
I need to know another tuning. From low to high:

Db Ab Db Gb Db Db

How do I tune to that and what's it called? I'm trying to learn "Waking Up" by 10 Years.

If it sounds good, it is good. However, I agree with Slacker... no relationships between members if you're serious about it.

So yeah, get the band together and see how it goes. If it goes well, you've just found yourself a new vocalist.

The friends with benefits thing might work out nicely though.
Lynyrd Skynyrd, ftw.
So basically E standard 2 steps down, or 1 step down? And is the # for flat or sharp?
From low to high:


What tuning is it, and how do I tune to it? "Awaken", by Dethklok is in that tuning.
Yep, just listened to it and that's where it's from. I never actually looked at the tabs for it though.
What do you guys think about "The 13th Floor" as a band name? My musically inclined friend and I were thinking of names the other day, and I came up with it. The logic behind it is that almost every office building will skip over 13 when numbering their floors (going from 12 right to 14) as 13 is considered a bad luck number.
I was tooling around a couple days ago, just randomly soloing, and came up with this little riff. I know it's from a semi-well known song, but can't figure out for the life of me what song it is. Can anyone here tell me?

E|- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
B|- - - - - 12-13-15-13-12- - - - - - - - - - - -
G|-12-13 - - - - - - - - - - - - 13-12 - 13-12 -
D|- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I believe it's played in 4/4 time, and the notes are 8ths (I think).
I would say either "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" by Poison, or "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)" by Greenday.

That too, my band does Electric Eye.

I would probably do a double cover though, and cover Helloween's version of it. I must hear your band's version.
If I were going to do a Judas Priest cover, I'd do Electric Eye.
Aerials, by System of a Down. Very easy to learn, and epic sounding to boot.
Where in NJ are you? I'm about a half hour outside philly, and I've been playing guitar for a little over 3 years now.
The Troc is a well respected venue in the area (I'm from NJ), and you guys definitely should have prepared a lot more. 7-8 minutes is nowhere near enough. 20 would even be cutting it short for that venue.
Never heard Painkiller, I'll have to check it out. If it's got a sick solo, then no, as I can't do big solos that well.

How do you do that then? Inflatable clothes? Stand with your legs apart and stick your arms out all the time? Eat at McDonalds every day? Grow a huge beard?

I assumed he meant moving around the stage a lot, like walk to one end of the stage and back a few times.
I would say go into any store that sells computer software, such as staples, best buy, circuit city, etc. They should have computer software that lets you print CD labels on special cd sized/shaped stickers that stay on the CD permanently. All you need is a working printer.
Yes, actually that's a very good set list. I would say do one of the less heavy metallica songs as well, like maybe "Nothing Else Matters" or "Fade To Black" as your final song of the night.
I guess FWTBT it is then. I might have my 1st jam session with them today, I'll post later how it goes.
I have one more to add to that list- Paranoid, by Black Sabbath. I recently conquered that song, and as my own personal touch, I put a galloping rhythym on the main riff. It sounds br00t@l, and I was thinking about suggesting that to them as well.
Dude, I would kill to be able to find a bassist in my area. Singers, drummers, and especially guitarists breed like f*cking rabbits around here, but finding a bassist, let alone a good one, is like trying to find bigfoot.
He doesn't neccessarily have to give up song writing duties either. If he's a good lyricist, he can do that, but since he has trouble singing, he can focus more on his guitar playing.
I can play the rhythym part of FWTBT perfect, and I've been working on the lead, but I don't have that down yet. I've heard their stuff and the bassist and guitarist (only one in their band, btw) are pretty good. My playing style is similar to theirs, but different enough to be unique, and I think I could bring a lot to the table with them.
Talk to the other members about it. If the 3 of you agree on the same thing, your lead player will have no choice but to accept a singer. It seems like he just wants to be the front man.
I was recently invited to have a jam session by a guy in my area whose band has established themselves pretty well (they've played gigs from atlantic city to philly to upstate NY). If all goes well and I end up joining them, I was thinking of suggesting a cover to do with them. I recently got a few songs down pretty well, and was wondering what you guys think I should do with them if they ok it:

Aerials- System of a Down
Perry Mason- Ozzy (I'd be rhythym on this, as I can't do all of the lead guitar part yet. I'd be playing along with the bass line for most of the song, and then with the lead guitar on the main riffs at the beginning and end of the song)
For Whom the Bell Tolls- Metallica

Tell me what you guys think.
I'd say just play all really hard stuff, like Lamb of God, Necrophagist, and Slayer, and hire a bouncer from a night club to stand guard near your equipment so they can't pull the plug on you.
If "owning" songs you wrote with a band, let alone only 2 or so is what you're worrying about, maybe you shouldn't join another band anytime soon. Having fun writing and playing the songs is what you should be concerned with, not the money/ownership.
