SEEKINGBand to Join.
I have sporadically dabbled in music for most of my life. From the age 4th grade through 12th grade I played trumpet in school/marching band, but I've kind of lost my chops when it comes to that. In college I dabbled in music production, especially hip-hop, EDM, and mashups. I have written poems and lyrics throughout my life, and recently I have started learning to play (acoustic) guitar, which I am picking up pretty quick and have gotten a lot of compliments on. I have also gotten a lot of compliments on my singing before, and have only recently started recording myself singing. I cannot yet play guitar and sing at the same time, but I can probably play do one or the other, and I can certainly contribute to songwriting, composition, and/or production. I have recorded one rap record which at the time I received many compliments on but that admittedly has not aged well and that I am no longer able to find. I have dabbled in Mixcraft, GarageBand, and MusicMaker Jam for production purposes. I am happy to contribute vocals or guitar at this point, as long as I don't have to do both at the same time. I am also happy to contribute to the songwriting, composition, or production process. I am on the fence about joining a band, but it is something I am open to. I understand that I lack experience, and that I have never played a gig, but I think I am capable of contributing, and I have nothing to lose. I am happy to provide demos.
