  1. Hi, 19 year old bassist, been playing for about 4 years, self taught. Unfortunately no gigging experience and limited theory knowledge. Intermediate player, can hold down the basics and some of the more taxing aspects. Quick learner. Some level of skill with both fingers and pick, some slap but my bass isnt great for it. Using a 5 string ESP F-155DX currently. Into most forms of music, Dream Theater are my favourite band and John Myung my bass idol. Am willing and able to play most genres but my prefrence would be some variation of progressive metal or rock. Epic sounding riffs and a good drum beat. Half cut atm so cant think of anything else to write.
  2. Hi guys, im a fairly inexperienced bassist (in terms of gigs, been playing almost 4 years) looking to start a band, i made a post on the forums, im more into metal then soft rock but I am interested. Do you have any examples of some of your own stuff?
  3. Hi. Im an 18 year old semi-self taught bassist, looking to join/form a band, ideally with a more metal sound but Im not totally closed to lighter stuff. I have had no previous gig experience, cannot read music and am not formerly graded but I feel I am a fairly strong player and am keen to get some live experience. Im interested in both writing and covering songs. The type of stuff I listen to ranges across all forms of metal and some other genres. Classics like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Dream Theater, Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio. Not to mention others, Nightwish, Krypteria, Xandria, Hammerfall, Highland Glory, Turisas, Linkin Park, Sick Puppies, Paramore, Rise Against, Sum 41, Breaking Benjamin, S.O.A.D, Soil, Trivium, Alestorm, Maximum the Hormone, Danko Jones, Kiuas. To name a few off the top of my head. All that sort of stuff influences me, favourite bassist is John Myung (Dream Theater). I like using his exercises to keep sharp. I play a low B 5 string if its of any intrest to anyone.
