Our new lead guitarist bailed on us yesterday. Turns out he wasn't liking the genre...He's more blues, 70's stuff. Dammit. So we are back in the hunt...Our ad is below...Figured I may as well ping .NET as I know there's a lot of musicians amongst us.
Talented, Middle-Aged Rock Band MID LIFE CRISIS Seeks Lead Guitarist!
We are a relatively new rock cover band (80's, 90's, 00's rock) consisting of a bassist, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and drummer. We are in our 40's and two guys in their 50's (but look 40's)
We've been jamming for over a year, and there is real talent here. We've played two gigs so far and each we were very well accepted by the crowd. Some lineup changes have limited our ability to keep gigging but we are now just one last piece of the puzzle away. Could it be YOU?
We play bands like AIC, STP, Green Day, Weezer, Three Days Grace, ACDC, Zeppelin, Soundgarden, Fuel and several others and will be adding more soon. We're looking for a lead guitarist who would like to have fun, but sound GREAT doing it! Nobody's in it for the money (although we plan on playing paying gigs). We are currently rehearsing in Tacoma and may rent a rehearsal place in Sumner soon.
Looking for a talented, yet fun and humble lead guitarist with years of experience, great skill, can learn songs fast, has a good attitude, (no drama, prima donnas, baggage or drugs please) between 30-50 and live in South King County. Looking for good to great chops, great tempo, solid gear and great tone. If you fit this description give us a shout! We would like to talk to you!
Here's our current set list for those of you enquiring...PLEASE ONLY RESPOND IF YOU GENUINELY LIKE THE MUSIC WE PLAY. Our last lead guitarist tried to like the songs but just didn't feel it. It's vital that you genuinely like these songs and these types of songs and the genre in general otherwise it's just wasting your time and our time.
We are always shuffling the set list, as it is always evolving but this gives you a good idea of the type of stuff we play. If you contact us please provide a link to a YouTube video or sound file of you playing recently. Preferably a sample of one of the songs in our set below. If you are contacted for a tryout please be prepared to have at least 4 songs in our set down tight. Thank you for checking us out!
