Also congrats on you 1000 post. Quite an accomplishment :rockon2:
Outside of playing between 12-3am, which is WAY past my bedtime, looks like I'm one of those you are looking for! :tongue: :tongue:
darn! If only I lived closer as it almost describes my style and personality perfectly ( I have a technique in which I jam without any strings or pickups on my guitar and beat on it with a dirty syringe). The hours are also great because I want to quit my job anyway.

If I can live in the carport when we're not jammin' then count me in !!!

We already got one of those bands together, wanna come join us. Least we get to practise indoors.... :D
You've just described the owner of rumble seat music. Wait.... you forgot - hits on your wife while you are over in the corner looking at an overpriced something or other....
I'm in! No, wait.....I still remember that time I did shrooms at a drummers wedding. Scary shit:eek: Guess I'm out.

...i'm not sure my supervisor here at work would agree.

Tarbender said: your a bass player :smile:
The symphony orchestra was performing Beethoven's Ninth.
In the piece, there's a long passage, about 20 minutes,
during which the bass violinists have nothing to do.

Rather than sit around that whole time looking stupid,
some bassists decided to sneak offstage and go to the
tavern next door for a quick one.

After slamming several beers in quick succession, one
of them looked at his watch and said, "Hey! We need to
get back!"

"No need to panic," said a fellow bassist. "I thought
we might need some extra time, so I tied the last few
pages of the conductor's score together with string.
It'll take him a few minutes to get it untangled."

A few moments later they staggered back to the concert
hall and took their places in the orchestra. About this
time, a member of the audience noticed the conductor seemed
a bit edgy and said as much to her companion.

"Well, of course," said her companion. "Don't you see?
It's the bottom of the Ninth, the score is tied, and the
bassists are loaded."

Im in If the practices are more structured. Like, will there be beer? I don't know if i want Ho's or not. Is that some kind of instrument?

I want to be in your band! I'm ready to relocate if necessary , this is just too great to pass up . :rockon2:
Hey, I'm always up durring that time...

Do you need a wang guitar player that goes on wanking tangents?

Did I mention that I have a van? And a practice PA?
I'd suggest checking out the local open jams in bars to find some compatible players, problems is lots of them already are in bands:tongue:

gl David... :rockon:
