Local slutz search
Hello fellow slutz ! As you can see, i have a very low post count since I joined here a few years ago. The main reason for this is that although I do have some experience recording, not a whole hell of a lot though, I have finally gotten up the courage to ask for some assistance. I have foolishly hoped that I could do it all myself, and could do quite a bit if given the right circumstances and location, but at the moment that is not the case. I've been stuck in a literal limbo for quite some time now, and owuld like to break out of it, but require some help, if anybody is willing to assist.
I live in Rhode Island, am 45 years old, I am no virtuoso at anything I play, which is guitar, bass, drums, and I sing as well. I have recorded a full length cd previously, playing all parts. But in order to escape this rut, I think outside influence could help tremendously. So, what I am in search of, if possible, are fellow slutz nearby who might possibly be open to collaboration, and/ or assistance. I am no idiot ( most of the time), and have constant musical ideas flowing through my brain. I also have the capability to finish material, including lyrics, but have been searching the Craigslist forums for a long time looking for compatible musicians, with near zere sucess. It seems, either the musical styles dont fit, or age is too much of a factor, or other things.
I play and write rock. Plain old rock, no metal, no electro, no blues. Etc...and i seek others who just like to write and record. I havent played out in a long time, but would if the situation and sound is right. I am also an original artsist, meaning that I dont get satisfaction from playing songs off the radio, i prefer to write my self, or to be a active participant in the writing process. To create, not imitate...how original is up to other peoples' opinions, as long as it is new, and not a copy.
I hope to find people who feel the same, and would take a chance with a fellow local. Perhaps they feel the same, and end up doing the same thing that I do, and wouldmwelcome a change.
Ok, heres what i have to offer equipment wise. At the moment, i have been using DP 6 on and older 2.3 gz dual g5 mac. Interface is a 896 mk3, with a behringer ADA 8000 for extra inputs. Mic pres other than those are presonus eureka, 2 rane ms1, m audio dmp3, and FMR RNP...Comps I have at the moment are VLA 2, and FRM RNC. I have a pretty good low end mic locker, 2 v67g's, 2 mxl 603's, mxl v69, pair of little blondies, i5, sm57, 2 Blue Balls, 2 fatheads, mxl cr24 set, and some others. 3 basses, all low end, 7 guitars, also all low end, but vary in styles and pickup configs due to need for different flavors. One acoustic. A converted ludwig acoustic kit into electric kit with homemade mesh heads and dm triggers for superior drummer. Multiple cymbals ( live cymbals---samples sound like shit )
I also have some other low end stuff but that would make this already too-long post even longer. I know this is a shot in the dark, but what the hell. I have been silent too long, and stubborn for even longer. If there is anyone experienced and intelligent out there that is looking for fellow locals to collaborate with, I would be eager to try. So, have at me if I sound like an idiot, or speak up if you might be into trying it. I just might suprise you. Like I said earlier, i play mostly rock, with a love of acoustic based rock, but not necessarily folk. I like styles with some power, and like pretty strong drums and rythems...
Just throwing out a line into the ether.....maybe i will get lucky...i just dont want to do it all myself anymore.....thanks if you read this...............Pete
