SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Violin, Keyboard, Flute.
Classic rock, Floyd, Zep, Sabbath, BOC, etc; also originals. Cell 228-383-5992 (prefer text for first contact, or leave voice-mail message if no answer). I've included some rough originals- plonked chords, cheesy drum machines and all- so you can hear basically where I am and kind of where I'd like to go, a sort of Pink Floyd/ Dire Straits hybrid (except for "Mercedes Street"- that's more the old Sabbath fan in me coming out). Any input is welcome, especially vocalists who might have ideas for vocal melodies to fit- also keyboard players who can add some depth, and, of course, bassists and REAL drummers and lead guitarists. Available just about anytime, with reasonable notice.
Mainly rhythm guitar, can manage some simple Gilmour-style leads/Trower-type fills. Some bass/percussion ability. Mainly interested in classic rock, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Dire Straits, etc. Partial song list, aside from the obvious standards-
Led Zeppelin- Thank You, What Is And What Should Never Be, Since I've Been Loving You, Immigrant Song, Out On The Tiles, The Rain Song, No Quarter, Dancing Days, The Rover, Kashmir
Pink Floyd- Breathe/Time/Breathe Reprise, Us And Them, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Have A Cigar, Pigs (Three Different Ones), Run Like Hell, Young Lust, Comfortably Numb, Learning To Fly, One Slip
Sabbath- Planet Caravan, Supernaut, A National Acrobat, Symptom Of The Universe (especially the outro)
BOC- Cities On Flame, Flaming Telepaths/Astronomy, Dominance and Submission, In Thee, ETI, I Love The Night, After Dark, Burnin' For You
Odds and others- Sultans Of Swing (Dire Straits), Too Rolling Stoned, Bridge of Sighs (Robin Trower), Funk 49 (Joe Walsh- James Gang), Sweet Jane (Mott The Hoople version), Blue Jean Blues, Rough Boy (ZZ Top), Ready For Love, Burnin' Sky (Bad Co), Do You Feel Like We Do (Frampton), Too Hot To Handle, Lights Out (UFO), Rock The Nation, Rock Candy, Paper Money (Montrose), Hair Of The Dog, Beggar's Day/Rose In The Heather (Nazareth), I Shot The Sheriff (Clapton), Blue On Black (Kenny Wayne Shepherd), Radar Love (Golden Earring)
(Some of these are easy quickies, some would be projects- I won't claim to know all these songs note-for-note and/or all the way through, but I can say I know them well enough to work on and get right and complete reasonably quickly. My philosophy on doing covers is that they should be recognizable, as interpretations, without needing to be by-rote carbon copies. Live is more important, I think, than nitpicking accuracy; if folks wanted the music exactly as on the record, they'd hire a dj)

Ibanez RG series, 80's Fender Strat, cheapo Jay Turser Les Paul copy (used for alternate tunings- e.g., "The Rain Song" and the "Higher Ground" section of "Eli's Song"), Boss GT-10, Boss BR1600 16-track digital recorder. Odds and ends effects (including Rocktron Banshee talkbox). 20W Raven practice amp + 40W Fender Champ= 60 watts sort-of stereo. Running Audacity and Reaper on an old laptop. Kind of equipment poor for live sound, but ok for recording purposes.
Fiat Lux (WYSIWYG)
Fiat Lux (WYSIWYG) Genre: Rock
"Let there be light..." I'm not a religious person by any means (what you see is what you get), I just like the imagery of the phrase "fiat lux," from the second section of the novel "A Canticle For Liebowitz."
Abandoned Genre: Rock
A ghost story...
Mercedes Street (The Oubliette)
Mercedes Street (The Oubliette) Genre: Rock
