String songwriter looking for same....
First up, a confession: I'm not a guitarist, but more on that later. I'm a guy who plays and writes songs (could be indie, rock, alt-country or folk depending on how they're done), most with a dark rather than a pop feel.
I'd like to meet other singer/musician-songwriters who have their own ideas for their stuff and want to learn and play each other's music and help to bring to life the idea for each song. I'm happy to submit to the genre and feel of your stuff to get it to where you want it to be, and am looking for someone who feels the same. I reckon this is the best route to a strong set.
You're most likely a guitarist and/or singer (but maybe not?), and want to build up a playlist, and perform - not for riches but because you enjoy playing music.
So, I'm not a guitarist - I play e/a tenor uke (with overdrive), can sing (strictly backing only) and have some percussion ability (but no-one's gonna search for a uke player). Have been in bands and gigged as a drummer in a past life. I'm easygoing. committed, have no illusions about fame and fortune, but want to make some noise and enjoy doing it before I'm dead.
I love sparse, heavy, dark sounding music, storytelling lyrics, dynamic shifts in volume and mood, strange vocals, polyrhythms, unusual instruments and most genres though I'm not into death metal or hip-hop. Sorry - just personal taste!
If your finger's twitching to reply - DO IT! There are a million reasons why it might not work out, but do it anyway. Take the risk, have some fun. I'd love to hear from you.
