I am an American permanent resident in Taipei. I am a guitarist looking for either a small group or a bass player. I write experimental/jazz rock/progressive original music, and would be happy with just a duo with bass, no vocals. I have played in bands in Taipei, but have nothing right now. I recently performed at Revolver pub and got a good response to my original music. Reach me here or at q028jc@gmail.com

I can now add three videos of my music I have made. In "Portrait of Cathy" I am playing acoustic guitar, my Takamine, in the other two electric, my Fender Telecaster. The songs indicate the style that I play, and all are original songs. The song "Red Sky Over Japan" particularly indicates my experimental guitar technique.

I'm located in Zhanghua (near Taichung), I'm a female singer (pretty much anything), and I'm desperate to find someone to jam with. I'd also be interested in doing local theater, if anyone knows anything about it. I'm pretty much just looking for a music community to associate with. Please reply to this thread, or PM me if you know anything/have any tips/or just wanna talk music.

Thanks!

Hmm, so it seems I'm the first person to post on here in awhile. Well, I'll give it a go anyways. I'm trying to find people interested in playing atmospheric black metal along the lines of Wolves in the Throne Room, Addaura, Alda, etc. I play the drums, and was in a band called Mary Shelley in Portland, Oregon.
You can check it out here:

If at all interested, get in touch. Also, while I am most interested in finding other metal musicians, I'd be down to explore other musical ventures.

Hi All, I play drums and I'm into Black Music (Funk,Soul, R&B, Hip Hop etc.). I'm looking forward to meet musicians who share the same taste in music. I'm not a professional drummer but also no beginner ...don't hestitate to get in touch with so we can check what's possible :)
And don't worry about any language barrier...Music is international!

Hey guys, I'm a guitarist and I like a LOT of music. Anything from Metal/Post-hardcore to Dubstep to Jazz and Hard Rock. I'm pretty versatile unless it's Jazz music, which I'm still a long ways away from learning.

That's my YouTube channel. Not a lot of guitar videos, because I'm really into post-hardcore or alternative (Circa Survive stuff), but if anyone wants to just jam for fun message me :D I'm currently in Taipei, near Wanlong station. I just need people to play music with! Playing with yourself isn't really that fun :P

Musicians UNITE!! :D

Hi. I'm a guitarist/bass player/vocalist living nr Taipei who is interested in the following:

1. Open Mic Nights
2. Acoustic covers solo/duo/small band (guitar/vox)
3. Electric covers with a band (bass)
4. Writing/performing originals either acoustic or electric
5. Checking out local bands (pref originals)

Anyone who is open to any of the above or who has info on open-mic nights (I heard of one at Bobwundayes?) please let me know. I only have an electro-acoustic guitar with me in Taipei but would not be adverse to buying equipment for the right gig. I've played a variety of music in my time but mostly rock, blues and country/americana (list of stuff I like below)

Cheers

The youtube clip is an old band in London where I played bass.

Bands/artists I like (just to give you an idea):

Tom Waits, Guns and Roses, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Nina Simone, Bo Diddly, Beatles, Stones, Fallout Boy, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Stax Soul, Skynyrd, Dr John, 80s/90s hip-hop, Stereo MCs, Portishead, Massive Attack, Aerosmith (early stuff), Free, John Martyn, Nick Drake, etc etc.
It's been rough and rocky travelin, but I'm finally standing upright on the ground. After taking several readings I'm surprised to find my mind's still fairly sound.

Nice living room.

I can't quite place which song the opening bass lines remind me of.


Edit: Yeah - opening bass lines for The Pot by Tool, except much, much slower.

1. Open Mic Nights


There is an accoustic show on the first thursday of every month at a bar called "Revolver" on Roosevelt near CKS station. Its not quite open mic but if you show up about 9pm and ask the management nicely they will likely let you get into the rotation if there arent too many players.

The next one is this thursday

Edit: There is also a regular open mic every monday at Riverside Cafe (also on Roosevelt) but its not run as well as Revolver and the crowd is much smaller

Cheers for the responses. Will check out those nights.

Re the song and Living room not sure I've ever listened to Tool but you may be right. The living room was in a semi-derelict house being used to film a TV series and our cameraman got us in there through his connections to do the video. Was quite an interesting experience but you had to be careful where you walked.

By the way, luuuurve peep show.

:lol:

Yeah, forgot to mention that the video was rather well produced.
Lo Pan is right: Revolver is a good place to head to get to know some underground bands and the people in the circuit, and they will let you on usually.
