I hear you. It wasn't my intention to lambast you on it either. "Humble apologies sir" (in my best Indian accent, for some reason)  Cheesy


No insult taken......... Smiley

I don't actually have an issue with the doodling, in fact, it's part of what makes a live gig, live. It came across as me being harsh on that one, It wasn't really my intention.

But the vocalist just seemed totally out of place with the rest of the band, everyone was kinda laid back and relaxed, he just seemed like he was brought in at the last moment as a fill-in.

Stopping in the middle of a song isn't on...........and stopping twice is even worse.

Ibanez artist...........I loved it, but I never played it when I started picking up on the drums.

FB, GT and sometimes I go to MARS music when I want something brand new, which isn't often.

So I was thinking about posting this and thought that I can't be alone on this.

Saturday night we were at Hard Rock cafe in Menlyn and a local chap was touring SA, solo player, jonny luck , talented, mean set of lungs and I enjoyed his selection. The band that followed him.........oi vey.................

They get on stage and spent a good amount of time going through doodling until they were ready to start. They weren't bad, until the lead singer piped up. I think that he had a lisp as well as trying to front a fake US accent. They were about  a minute into the session and he just stops, "sworry guys, I"m nwot hearing mwself here, can we have mwore vwocals??"

So they stop and then make adjustments and then start again for about 20 seconds and he stops again, "yes, I'm stwill not hearing mwyself here"

And he switches to playing another song, cause I guess the first one didn't work out for him.....at this stage we left.

Maybe I'm expecting too much, but shouldn't guys come prepared for a gig and if things don't go according to plan, you make it work? The performance they gave was dismal and the front man was more interested in flying around the 2m stage and grand standing than putting the patrons first.

Anyone's thoughts on this?

Dont really have any preferences to a specific genre.
Jazz, blues, rock, pop, metal.....the main objective is to get a couple  of people together who just love playing music.
I'm 39y old, so this for me is just to relax a bit and have fun in the process. Certainly not a career choice!


Sent you an email.

I'm up for just playing, not really phased with genre, I just wanted to see if there was a set direction that you wanted to head with this. either way I'm game.

Guitar ability.......eh above beginner...lol.
Vox ability.......beginner
drums.......beginner.

I'm beginning to see a pattern with my ability.

Guido...........If you're looking for percussion, drop me a line, I've been off the guitar for a while, but have been busy on drums. Also have more time now as they kids are older.

Still have the PA, mic, speakers and stuff.

My tastes have matured somewhat and actually want to head away from what we used to play.

Hi guys.
Have already subscribed to the previous post as well, but it seems that most of the people that have replied are from jhb.
I'm particularly interested in meeting Prertoria based individuals that would like to meet on a regular basis.
I'm pretty mediocre to put it mildly, so please dont expect slash to turn up!. 
I am keen to meet anyone, regardless of their level of proficiency, that would like to make some noise and have fun in the process.

Anyhow, please drop me a message should you be interested so that we can decide on a venue, dates etc

Thanx
Mike

Hey ICM

Wellllllllllll, we started the steps for the respray and noted a few issues, so I decided to put a lot of things right......and well....it kind of just picked up momentum and got out of hand.



Also currently building a removable hard top for it as well.



It is currently back on its wheels and actually ready to block sanded and ready for paint. Hopefully before the end of March.

I'm looking at trading both of these guitars for an Explorer......Please no garbage.`

Ibanez ARTIST - AR300. 2006 model made in Korea, Total mint condition

3-piece maple AR set neck
Double cutaway mahogany body with carved flamed maple top
22 large frets
Bound rosewood fingerboard
BR-EG bridge
IBZ Super 58 neck humbucker
IBZ Super 58 bridge humbucker

Comes with a hardcase.

1994 BC Rich (Custom built) Warlock - Some marks, but nothing major.

This is a beast of a guitar, was built by myself as a project.
- SOLID Canadian Maple body, no relief cuts, it's heavy, but damn it has some serious balls to it. Loves drop tuning and plays dark.
- KKV neck with widow headstock
- D'marzio single bucker, no idea what it is as it was bought from TOMS many moons ago, I do still have all the invoices though from the build
- Schaller bridge
- Custom wiring, 500k pots, new input jack.
- DR neons 11g

- I have a case for this one, but it has to go back to the PO as she said if I ever sell the guitar, then she would like the case back. I'm sure that something can be arranged with her though.

Does anyone have a new number for king louis?

The old number keeps saying " the number is incorrect "

I think that they're called Tshwane Musical Instruments now.
