Guitarist/singer looking to join or form a band (Columbus, OH)
I'd like to get together to jam with other musicians (singers, guitarists, keyboardists, drummers, bassists). I am interested in music of hippie era, as well as other kinds of music that are melodic and pleasing to the ear. Most of all I would prefer to play the music of Beatles (Yes, it's possible - I have considerable experience with that). Aside from covers we could improvise and maybe create originals.

Must be alive, have sense of humor, and be peaceful. Being a Beatles fan is a big plus.

Bass Player (Columbus, Oh)
I have a Factor Bass, and a Peavey Amp, some talent, and most importantly, a desire to play out. Influences include, Soundgarden, Afghan Wigs, Bush, Candlebox, The Cure, and a host of others (the more the merrier). My sound is a bit like Adam Clayton (U2), although I'm still young to the process of reeducation after years of guitar playing. Here's some philosophy: Cover bands are a waste of time. Art is doing something new; house painting is doing something old. I'm looking for an alt. band, or the following: guitar, drum, and bass player (yep, two basses). I'm also interested in a female or down to earth male vocalist. e-mail me even if you only need the chat.

Ohio State Campus Area (Columbus, OH)
Guitarist looking for a band or band members. Looking for drummer, guitarists, and bass players who want to get together and start a band.

Also, no druggies, heavy drinkers, or jerks. Please let me know if you are interested.

3 High Quality Basses from a bass fanatic (Hilliard, Oh)
Modulus Graphite SP1-6 bass $1600 (retail $4000) The neck is virtually a rock, allowing for unflinchingly tone across all 6 stings. Pedula Thunderbolt 5 bass $1350 (retail $2700). I love this thing; the finish (which was photographed by the finisher for his national brochure) and pickups are better than the stock version Pedula, which is saying a lot. His Fender version Factor is going for $700. All look and play like nothing else sold in Columbus (bought in Nashville). Incidentally, I'm still looking for musicians or a band to join with me with my Kubiki Factor
