SEEKINGBass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist.
I'm Gaz, I've been drumming for 5/6 years now and as you've already read, Iooking for a band. I go to Salford University and live in Salford during term but my home town is Glossop, 20-30 minutes east of Manchester (not far). I'm going to admit now though that I have no previous band experience but I'm 21 soon and know if I want to start playing in a band it's now or never (well, probably not but I want to get started anyway).
I want to play sort of popcore/hardcore music. I like screaming music but I also like it to have normal singing and be a bit more melodic. I'm do listen to some heavy music but fancy going down the more pop punk route with this.
I can hold my own on the drums but I not claiming to be super technician. I prefer solid playing. My playing is very aggressive and energetic. Definitely a hard hitter. I can play double bass but don't feel it's necessary all the time. My gear's OK but I am upgrading for my 21st anyway.
I've also played guitar for a couple of years just for kicks so I can help with riffs etc if needed (I'm not great though). I never tried song writing but will be willing if needed. I can't sing for s**t however.
I'd like to take this band seriously and eventually gig around Manchester and further if we're good enough. I'd definitely want to 'make it' (who doesn't). Love to get signed and tour because although I'm studying at Uni this is my dream and I want it to become a reality (this has all gone a bit cheesy)
Think that's everything so contact me on here if interested.
P.S. This is me talking in ideal, but still let me know if you have something similar.
