But once you find one, what are you going to do with them?



I thought so.

Musicians or bands looking for vocalists

Postby Fort Tiger » 31 May 2011, 12:17

Does anyone know the best place or website where a vocalist can search for a band out in the Taipei area?

Anybody here on this board interested in a vocalist? I have been in 4 bands that range from Alternative, hard rock, and punk. I'm just looking for a few guys to jam with. I arrive in Taipei in a couple weeks. Message me if your interested :)

I don't have a band for you to sing in, but if you just want to sing, I know that there are a number of KTVs in Taipei that will let you sing along to their songs. :neutral:

not too much activity on this thread recently...

I've been here for a few months, recently moved my electric gear over. I've made a few musician contacts but I'm looking to meet more. My chinese isn't quite good enough to talk music yet so I'll have to wait a little while to go local.

looking for people with more of an indie rock inclination. tend to prefer stuff with a lot of guitar, a lot of harmony, really dig the elephant six groups- poppy, noisy, pretty, dissonant, what have you. oh and i play guitar and sing...

feel free to pm me. not really interested in playing covers or doing really specific genre type stuff (metal, reggae, etc.)

Guitarist seeks musicians

Postby Rockforever » 21 Jul 2011, 15:06

American Taipei permanent resident. Guitar player plays a Rock/Jazz/New Age sound. Strong rhythmic sense with lead capabilities. Own a Fender Telecaster, Takamine acoustic and Roland Cube amp. Guitars are of high quality with great sound and seek to use both in band. Seeking drummer and/or bass to start. Possible addition of vocals later, but also want to do instrumental music. Please contact if interested in making serious, beautiful music with richly complex character. Also contact at q028jc@gmail.com.

Never met a guitar player who can't make a crap geetar sound great. Never met a gitfiddle so good that it can make a crap git player sound good.
I have a Roland Cube too, but I cannot imagine it EVER being big enough to cut through a mix with drums and a bass! Even miked into a PA. I don't care if your tele is an original '52 with handwound boutique pickups, its NOT going to sound great with a band through a busking/bedroom amp!
Edit: Oops! A Cube, not a Micro Cube. I heard the 80w one is quite usable and that there's a 40w one that talks the talk but doesn't really walk the walk. Which one are you talking about?

I probably would not disagree with you about the Cube, it's a bit too small and confined in it's sound--though the actual sound is very nice. I have a 40XL.
