    Hey all :)

    It's been a while since I last started a thread here, so I thought I'd try and set another one up that had a bit of longevity to it!

    Apologies if this has been done before but I was wondering if there were any musicians here that fancied showing off their musical abilities via SoundCloud, Youtube, etc here? I have just bought myself a Boss BR-600 track mixer and started my own little SoundCloud, but yeah, just wanted to see if there are any budding musicians out there!

    Here's the link to my musique: http://soundcloud.com/toasted_crumpet

    And I'm aware this may seem like a cheap way to get hits but HEY! ;)

    Anyways looking forward to hearing your stuff!

    If you sound like George Michael then you should have a very successful career.

    FCUTA!

    I play piano and violin. Haven't played violin for years but still tinker on piano. Got up to grade 7 when I was in school.

    What's your thoughts on Heroes Reborn? Read my TV musings here.

    I didn't mean it like it sounded like a specific song; it just had that similar vibe - the way the beats are constructed, the way it all kinda hangs together. I don't mean it sounds like you're copying or using their style either; just that it has a the same kinda feel when you listen to it. Not bad.

    I like your stuff too, Rob; has a sorta one-foot-in-the-80s thing there. Good stuff.

    My band's page. It's only been there a few days and I haven't really done anything with it so apologies for the sparseness. I'll get it sorted soon. Anyone who clicks Like gets a special Zo hug. Now to listen to y'all.

    Good stuff :) And... done.

    I should really set up a soundcloud account for my own widdlings. So... lazy.
    I always feel weird pimping my own band, especially as we're a bit of an... acquired taste.

    Oh yeah, drums on the tracks on that page were sequenced or partly-sequenced I think; would've been when we were between drummers. I think; can't even remember now :D

    Been playing guitar for twenty years now. Not in a band at the moment but do play live occasionally. Started giving guitar lessons recently.

    Mostly play for my own amusement.

    I need to find myself a band again. Haven't played with other people for a year or so now and I really miss it.

    On that subject, can anyone recommend any sites for finding musicians in your area?

    Oh, any excuse to parp my trumpet. Note : I don't play the trumpet.

    I've done a few game remixes, and finished off an album and an ep, and I have a new ep on the way. I played live for the first time recently, which was a lot of fun. You'll find that video at the youtube link below.

    http://abandonedsheep.com/ - main site
    http://soundcloud.com/binster/ - music streams
    http://binster.bandcamp.com/ - music downloads
    http://www.youtube.com/user/thabisnit - videos

    Also! I teamed up with the music guy from Frozen Synapse to do this chiptune style album :

    Trumpet parping ends.

    Finding people is a pain in the arse :) If you go to any places near you doing practice spaces you might be able to post a note on their board / see their ads for musicians wanted. Always a bit of a pain unless you already know a load of musicians you can blag.

    *edit* No idea about online sitey things, aside from the usual Social Meeja.

    Just started a band the other week, and finally got myself a bass yesterday. So far we have covered three songs in practice.

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    I play guitar (mainly rhythm) and I sing. I'd really love to be in a band but I'm currently in the market as it were.

    I have hardly played for about a year and I'm trying to get back into it. Keep playing games instead though. I've never heard of soundcloud and basically have no recording facilities. I might stick the one song I ever fully wrote on YouTube. If I do, I'll be sure to link it here.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    You could always try Join My Band I know a couple of people who have found musicians/bands to join using that site

    It certainly is, my last band came about kind of by accident and the mixture of tastes we had made for a good combination, I even recorded some stuff which came out pretty well but that band disbanded for a couple of reasons and I've been without for a while.
