ORIGINAL POSTER



Acoustic Guitar Player looking for friends/musicians

Postby Blues » 22 Apr 2004, 05:02

Hi,

Im new to Taipei and have been thinking about putting together a small acoustic act. I have been playing for about 7 years but have slacked off the past year but want to get serious again. I would like to start by jamming with a few people and makeing some friends then maybe finding a small venue/club/bar to perform.

I play a lot of Dave Mathews and like a wide genre of music... but tend to focus on things that can are acoustically inclinded. I have a lot of original content that is pretty decent and played in a band in College for two years.

Drop me an email if you are interested... Geraldaf@mac.com.

-Gerald-
Hello... goodbye... and everything in between.
I'd go the whole wide world, just to find her.

looking for improvisionally inclined musicians

Postby the bear » 30 Apr 2004, 15:46

ok well the bear has decided it's time to get the band back together so anyone interested in meeting for some open-ended jazz-improv. jams then let me know...i play keyboards but can play some guitar or bass if needed...the kind of music I'm interested in would be mostly jazz-funk, groove-based stuff but also anything improv. related. jazz standards also would be cool if there's any horn players interested...

you do need to have command of your instrument but technical virtuosity is not essential (otherwise I'd be fucked for starters!)

former members of the late, great reverend peacock are welcome to apply

let me know if anyone's interested
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Hi the bear, I'm a bass-player (e- & double bass), mostly interested in anything that grooves, have played funk, standards & latin and lots of other stuff. Can double on the guitar as well. Have full gear. Don't read music but have ears. PM me if you're still looking for either a bass player or a guitarist. Thanks, Xpet.
We left Taiwan, but then we didn't ...

Musicians Seeking Musicians (and Stages)

fellow jazz guitarists/musicians

I've been studying and playing jazz guitar for about 15 years. I'm living in Neihu (Taipei) and am looking for other jazz guitarists or musicians who would be interested in playing small combo stuff.

"Classical" Musicians

Postby rshanlon2 » 13 Jun 2004, 19:58

My wife, flutist, and myself, classical guitarist, would be interested in hooking up with other musicians for small ensemble music making (classical/romantic/20th cent.).

A cellist, violinist, violist or melodic percussionist might make a nice ensemble.

any of those people lurking on the island in the Taipei area.

we're in Neihu.

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life -- FR ALFRED D'SOUZA
