Description: I am a 23 year old guitarist looking to start a local 4 piece rock band (vocals, guitar, bass and drums). I'm looking for people with an open mind and wide range of influences.  I am aiming for a combination of rock and funk and wanting to focus primarily on originals however i understand the need to learn covers to get to know each other musically at first.   Looking for full commitment and weekly availability with the ambition of being a gigging band however most importantly to bring good vibes, positivity and have fun.

Description: I have recently just left school and I am looking to get out there and play with people who are into the same kind of music as me. I am looking to go the distance and really make something happen, I'm not looking for one off's or time wasters, I want to know if you are going to do it and willing to put the time and effort into making it, then definitely let me know. I'm looking for people who have a good image that suits what they play, not just some old guy who learnt to play about 3 weeks ago and wants to jam or thinks they want to start a band. Your skill level needs to be really good no matter what you play, it's important to be tight and have a good sense of rhythm, otherwise... Things just fall apart, trust me... I've had experience with the "school band/group" I was forced to play in as I was the only bass player there... Stupid right? I'm not willing to expand and start playing the crappy rock of today (which isn't by my standards, it's just s**t) Also... Not the metal of today either, cause' let's be honest... They sound like One Direction now and don't know how to do one solo anymore, so they tune their guitars to B Standard and have the strings falling of their fretboard, which pisses me off!! And also... no vocalist who sounds like they are taking a shit everytime they sing! I haven't had a lot of giging experience but I've played live quite a few times and I was the one who kept everything in order and sounded good on everything I played (like I say, there isn't much competition at school though). If interested, definitley get in touch, either in here or through email. Thanks a lot, Elliott
